Heck think of what kind of farm you could be working on if you didn't just dabble! :sarc: Have always heard that miss state had a great ag program. Looked into raising some quail and got a lot of info from miss state.

Learned a little about that as well, and it's funny you should mention that. We've been working to reestablish bobwhite quail to our farm. Today we flushed our first covey. According to MSU the #1 predator to bobwhite quail is.....?

Possum. Followed by any ground nest predator.

Wonder if fireants being their downfall is folklore, or actual regional differences?

Also lack of habitat from more efficient farming practices.

There are a lot of fire ants in that part of MS, and they we're never discussed that I can remember. Habitat reduction due to farming practices allows the ground nest predators to have such a devastating impact.

CUJO will agree.... Yet another reason why they must die!

Spiders. It's always the spiders.
My lab died, and no one on Duckhuntingchat even cared.

I would think that habitat reduction is one of the main contributing factors to most wildlife population problems.

Was bigger plows and more cows that did them in here. And it's my understanding that can't be remedied on a small scale, as the research apparently suggests that isolated birds are "zombie coveys" doomed to die off if there aren't enough other coveys scattered throughout the region.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
