There are supposed to  be Bob whites in the SW part of the state . Has anyone ever hunted these  ?

I was looking at the Peterson  's field guide , and it shows Bob's almost up to the Twin Cities . But just along the river .

I read somewhere once that ours is a Northern subspecies and larger than southern ones .

We got into some coveys about 20 years ago west of Baraboo. 

They were fairly large coveys and we think they were established by a guy working bird dogs throughout summer.

I see coveys of quail at a few farms north of Portage.  I have seen them consistantly for about 30 yrs. now.  They are wild big fat bob whites.  They would be mixed in with the grouse.  Now rare to see a grouse, but the quail are still there.

I (actually my dogs) usually find a covey on PHG about every other year. I am certain they are leftovers from dog training. About 30 years ago we flushed a covey in southern Kettle Moraine while mountain biking.

It's been about ten years since we last saw any but we used to have to coveys on my grandparents farms in South West Wisconsin. Unfortunately I we haven't seen any since and I think the predators took care of them.

Makes you wonder why Wi even has a season for them ? I think the regs say you can take 5 a day .

I’ve seen one live actual bobwhite quail in my 51 years.  It was on the Minnesota side of the river between Rochester and Winona.

About 10 years ago, I shot one.  I think it was at Pine Island. My guess is that it was planted for dog training. 

About 40 years ago we kicked up a big covey of them, which I assumed were wild.  If memory serves me correctly, it was in the Brooklyn PHG.

Both times we were hunting pheasants.
