Gov. Justice and WV DNR announce five-year project to restore Bobwhite Quail to West Virginia >

CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice announced today that the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources is beginning a five-year project to restore northern bobwhite quail to the state.

Justice said. “Over the next few years, we’re going to work so that our folks can once again hear that familiar bobwhite whistle.”

Here’s something I’m dying to do, and with quail numbers up, I think it’s time for me to head west and check it out. I’ve never hunted quail — wild or pen raised. From this video, the experience looks awesome. The video was produced by the Quail Coalition. They did a great job.
