Quail hunting is an enjoyable pastime for people of all ages. Like other aspects of hunting, it takes time and practice to perfect the hunt of the quail. Several species range from button quail, hemipode, american quail, northern bobwhite, and the California quail. They all have their own distinctive traits that make them great for gaming. Have you ever thought about going quail hunting but never knew just quite how to get started? Well I’m here to help you!

To begin with, you have to be in the right area to quail hunt. There are ranges all over the United States. Alabama, California, Florida, North Carolina, and South Dakota are just a few of the states that allow quail hunting. Quail hunting season varies by state, so you will have to check with your local hunting preserve for dates. You will also need to check with your local preserve about restrictions and limitations, as those vary by state as well.

Gear and weapons are very important for quail hunting, if you don’t have the right kind then you will fail at the sport. Shooting gloves, vests, boots, hunting license, and maps are at the top of the list of essentials. Always remember every time you go into the wild to take survival gear such as flares, first aid kits, and knives. The type of gun you use is also very important. You can get a great gun for between $300 and $2000 – it just depends on how much you are willing to spend. Remember not to rely so much on your gun but on your skills as a quail hunter.
