    I was reading a blog by Chad Love bemoaning the use of technology. In the blog he made this back-handed comment about Karl Rove quail hunting: "I'd bet my worn-out game vest that shotgun of his has never killed a public-land commoner's quail, but at least he'd nail the word-count limit on his stories." My question is what is the best state to kill public-lands commoners quail? Does your state have very many quail on public-lands?

    I can count on one hand the number of quail on Ohio's public land.

      Nada, zilch. It's tough to find quail on private land unless the property owner must make an effort to leave cover, and that's tough for the modern day farmer to do.

          Bad weather the last 2 years have made quail as scarce as Unicorns in Kansas. A farmer I know told me last week he used to have at least 10 coveys on his place. Last fall he flushed exactly 1 covey all season long and did not shoot inorder to leave them for seed.

            Texas has ample quail hunting opportunities on public land, although I have my own private stomping grounds I prefer. SEMPER FI!

                I would say Texas or Oklahoma. It helps the population when hunters dont chase a covey down until every last bird is dead.

                    I would take it farther than that. I would bet that his boots (if he has any) have never been off the sidewalk, and that he has not been hunting since he got out of high school. I have never seen quail as highly concentrated as in Arizona. I don't think they have any here in WA.
