Increasing Turkey and Bobwhites in the Southeast

Show Notes

On this week's podcast Frank and Matt discuss a new farm setup in Mississippi. This farm has lofty goals that will take a precise plan to accomplish. During this podcast, we cover how we plan to attack it.

This property wants to produce a habitat that will not only sustain but improve bobwhite quail numbers. This habitat is primarily covered in planted pines of varying ages from 3-year old clear-cut, 13-year-old unthinned pines up to 20-year-old thinned pines. These varying stages and habitat types create a complex arrangement of plans to create the desired habitat.

First and foremost, we will be thinning the canopy and then adding prescribed fire across much of the property. Although this may seem simple, it is a very detailed puzzle that when put together will have flocks of wild turkeys and coveys of quail on each unit of the farm. #ForLoveoftheLand
