Quail condo

Discussion in 'Upland Game hunting, Dogs and dog training' started by QuailDancer, Sep 1, 2005.

  1. Does anyone have experience placing "quail condos" or recall systems out?
    If so, when is the best time to start a project like that?

    I've got one...got it from Dunn's years ago. I used it 6 years ago when my Britt was a pup. I put mine out in the fall...had about 12 pen raised quail. Left a male in the cage to call back the rest.

    They work....but....Hawks are smart, and they'll just sit in a tree and pick the quail off one by one when they're on their way back to the pen.
     

  3. ESPN Outdoors website had an artical on building your own from fencing that's set up in a spiral and planted with vegitation. The idea giving the quail cover that preditors can't get into. It looked like something fairly cheap and easy to do.
    Hadn't thought about hawks! I've sat in treestands deer hunting and watched hawks out there picking off squirrels.
