Bobwhite Quail

Bobwhite Quail

Number Two on the upland bird draw is the bobwhite quail. And Kansas generally ranks within the top three states in quail harvest. While quail can be found statewide, populations are generally better in the east. The southeast region of the state is usually the top quail producer. And the northeast generally runs a close second. Numbers can be good locally in the northcentral, southcentral and southwest regions, where good pheasant/quail hunts are an attraction. During years of favorable weather, the Red Hills region can provide very good quail hunting amid a beautiful setting. In the far southwestern corner of the state, scaled, or blue, quail are found in in addition to bobwhites.
