Has anyone that hunts DP ever see any quail? If so, are the birds released or wild?

I don't think DNR stocks any quail. If there are any about they would probably be remnants from the field trials and dog training events. The only quail I ever saw there were ones I planted for my dog.

DNR says quail population is up 22-30% this year in Illinois which is great but I'm sure that is not here local. It would be nice to get some, it is the tastiest bird I have ever had (bob white), other quail are dark meat.

I'm seeing more and more quail at my farm but that is 3 hours south. I haven't tried to hunt them but I usually see them while deer hunting.

I'v never seen any there but you are only allowed to hunt them 4 days a year there during the clean up hunts (usually in January) and not during the regular hunting season. Most are probably left from field trials (they do not release them like pheasant) but there probably are a few wild ones out there.
