Pleas share far and wide if you care about wildlife

This picture shows you everything you need to know about fall mowing and bobwhites. If you were a quail, which side would you rather live on?

Fall mowing takes away badly needed cover for bobwhites, leaving them exposed for the entire winter. Resist the urge.

This is something we need to begin a conversation about. Many landowners feel they have to make a choice between timber revenue and quail, and most assume it's one or the other.

In a recent presentation, Tall Timbers Research Station & Land Conservancy biologist Paul Grimes showed that managing land for quail doesn't affect timber revenue like most people think. The chart pictured, based on data from a model by Dr. Barry Shiver of SmarterForestry, shows 4 scenarios:

*Min Input means just plant the trees and walk away for 34 years until it's time to harvest.

*Max Rev means periodic thinning done at intervals that generate the most timber revenue.

*Max Rev w/Quail means thinning the timber to densities that are favorable to quail while still generating the most possible timber revenue.

*Max Quail Years means managing the timber in a way that supports quail for the most possible years.

The differences are surprisingly small. Notable is that you can make MORE money and STILL have quail than you can if you just plant the trees and walk away for the next 3 decades.

Timber/quail management is much more intricate than this one chart can show, but we all need to get past the notion that you can't have quail AND generate timber revenue on your property. Even managing for maximum quail habitat, timber revenue can still be substantial. If you'd like to see how this affects your property, email Paul at [email protected].

This is how easy it is to be a part of bobwhite restoration in SC. When you sign up for the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources quail hunter survey, you'll get a link to this form that you'll fill out after each hunt (I do it on my phone when I get back to the truck).

The only other questions ask how many people were in your party, how many hours you hunted, how many coveys you saw and how many birds were taken.

This data is used to help us monitor how well our efforts are working in each part of the state and to help us decide what areas need more attention. It's the easiest way to become a part of our statewide effort to #bringbackthewhistle.

For landowners already enrolled in CRP who have done their mid-contract management, here's an opportunity to get more incentive payments for thinning and burning your trees. Pretty good deal to help make your land more quail-friendly. Click the image for details.

BULLFROG SNAGS QUAIL CHICKS
On our bobwhite research in North Carolina, we recently found a radio-tagged bobwhite chick and a second banded chick eaten by an American Bullfrog. This is no doubt an anomaly but showcases that life as a quail is not easy. We have always said that anything and everything eats a quail bird. Who would've thought that a bullfrog would become a predator of quail chicks?

The South Carolina Bobwhite Initiative

Late last week this page topped 1500 followers - not bad for the short time we've been live. All the time we get asked "what can I do to help out?" Well, here's you chance and you don't even have to get out of the chair.

We'd like to see this number hit 2,000 followers by July 4th. The more people we can reach, the more land gets converted to bobwhite-friendly habitat and the more birds all of us can enjoy. If everyone who follows this page can get just 1 friend, hunting buddy, neighbor, sibling or anyone else who loves quail to follow the page, we'll blow right past 2,000 followers and hit 3,000, which would REALLY get this project jumping.

Take 30 seconds and share this page on your timeline or with someone you know and ask them to follow and you'll be doing your part for this once in a generation conservation effort.

Thanks for the helping hand, and thanks for following us!

A very interesting read.

Aug 24, 2019 -- OPEN HOUSE for bird dogs and their owners. If you want to put your dog on a pigeon or quail come on out and we will try to help everyone a little bit with their dog. Dog work from 8 to 1 followed by a social that will include fried quail and chukar treats. and other snacks.
Are you thinking about Summer training for your dog? Why not give him the luxury of air conditioning when he is not being trained in the field? Sarahsetter Kennels has openings this summer that will carry your dog into early Fall ready for the coming hunting season. Trained with pigeons and quail through the summer and as we move into fall both Chukar and pheasant can be added. We also train most breeds for obedience as space allows.
If there was any doubt in how dangerous coyotes are to small pets just watch how fast this coyote came across the field to grab this little dog. The good news here is the neighbor's Rottie saved the day.
Now we have a large scale study that shows that neutering male dogs has caused severe behavioral problems including aggression and fear related behaviors. Neutering has never solved many problems for dogs because they need to be trained and society has lost most connections to outdoors and the way of animals. They are not teddy bears,fur babies, canine children, etc. Problem dogs do not need counselors (Animal Behaviorists) - they need trainers.

Mark....hope you're doing well. Do you still raise any red dogs? Thinking about a puppy again. Thanks, Chris
