Quail Trapping

Postby Dan182 » Fri Jul 07, 2006 11:47 am

Hi there. I've been trying to get these pesky quail out of my garden for weeks now, and nothing seems to be working. I'm looking for a trap which will work fairly well, and preferablly be something that I can make myself for little or no price. I'm trapping california quial by the way, and I'm pretty sure its not legal to kill them in California (where I live) anyway, so if anyone has any information or trapping methods they can share, I would appreicate it.

Thanks

Do you hunt? Get a gun and kill them during season.
The group ended up with 420 birds.

Have you considered chicken wire around the garden. but they can fly. My father uses this for rabits. Also consider a owl decoy. It may and I say that being unsure, prevent them from coming into the garden. But it on a post high above the garden. I know it works for a while with pigeons.
Have you ever woke up one day and said. Damn when does the season start.

advertise a guided hunt and come the opening of your season I bet you could move them right out of there.

Try baiting them out. If you have a live animal trap, you could probably put some of their favorite foods in the trap and catch them. It may work only 1 by 1, but it would be a start.

Oh, I almost forgot. You could hire me as an exterminator whenever season opens :)
