Most states have a trapping association and they conventions at some point in the year with supplies and demonstrations. It's a great place to learn from experienced trappers and save on shipping!

Many of the plants we recognize as "weeds" often provide valuable food and cover for quail and various other wildlife species, especially during fall and winter. Plant species like ragweed (A), beggar's lice (B), pokeweed (C), blackberry (D), and wild plum (E) are all excellent plants for quail! Fall ragweed allergies are in the air, pokeweed berries love to stain our hands and clothes, beggar's lice sticks to jeans like velcro, and nobody enjoys walking through a thick blackberry patch or wild plum thicket, but these areas are critical for bobwhites. If we can all make the decision to leave our mower in the shed and tolerate that grown-up field, weedy ditch, or brushy fencerow a few more months, we can help a few quail make it through to nest and raise broods next year. Landscape change is necessary for successful quail restoration and this is one small step we can all take in the right direction across the Carolinas! #carolinaonpoint#coveyrise#quailforever#birddogsofinstagram#settersofinstagram#pointersofinstagram#orvisdogs#ncwildlife#uplandtraditon
Little bluestem, indiangrass, and switchgrass all pictured here in the same 80 acre property. Native grasslands once covered vast expanses of our state of Kansas and were what our wildlife depended on. Native warm season grasses were the dominant component of these prairie grassland ecosystems. Today, less than 10% of the original tallgrass prairie and 30% of shortgrass prairie remains. This loss has directly affected native wildlife. Native warm season grasses provide optimum habitat conditions to more native wildlife species than do cool season grasses. They provide three of the basic habitat requirements of grassland wildlife species: food, shelter, and space. The habitat provided by native warm season grass species is preferred by ground-dwelling wildlife such as ring-necked pheasants, northern bobwhites, and a variety of songbirds and small mammals. Mix in some native forbs, and the NWSG stand becomes an ideal habitat for butterflies, bees, and beneficial insects. With hard-work, dedication, and perseverance from our chapter members; we can improve and reestablish what our native species once called home and make Kansas the profound upland bird hunting state it once was. #QuailForever#PheasantForever#HabitatForever
