http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/news/dec04/1227bobwhite.htm Anyone else remember the fantastic quail hunting we once enjoyed in Ohio? I grew up in Mahoning County and my first few hunting trips were for quail. I can remember Dad and I flushing multiple coveys within one 20 acre tract of land in the early to mid 70's. Dad didn't really like having to clean anything that small but he knew how much I enjoyed the non-stop action. Well it all came to a sudden end when the quail was all but extirpated from Ohio in the late 70's. Looks like the state is finally getting involved in restoration on a larger scale. Like the wild turkey, I sure hope it becomes another success story.
