Of note, there is a Quail Forever chapter in Harrison. It is the Ozark Mountain Quail Forever. QF is a division of Pheasants Forever and is NOT associated with Quail Unlimited. We have a dedicated Biologist in our chapter.
Our 2nd annual fund raising banquet was very successful and we will be looking at planning or partnering with other agencies to improve habitat, create new habitat and to have a youth event to educate and get kids interested in quail and hopefully inspire them to improve habitat in the future.
Anyone interested in attending meetings to see what we are about or in becoming a member, let me know off list or check out the chapter on Facebook.
Attached are two things that might be of interest.

Many people would like to help the Northern Bobwhite and its recovery but may not know what to do or are doing the wrong things. The Missouri Department of Conservation has a free newsletter that can be signed up for either electronic or hard copy. It has some of the latest research and suggestions when and how you need to be improving habitat for the Northern Bobwhite. Also remember that the habitat needed by this species is also the habitat used by 40+ other grassland birds. The 138 million acres of improved pastures with exotic grasses like Bermuda, Pensacola Bahia and Fescue are of little to no value for the Northern Bobwhite or other grassland birds. You can help.
