Research ranch studies decline in quail populations » Abilene Reporter News
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Many things have been blamed for the declining numbers of quail: dry weather, feral hogs, toxins harmful to quail in deer corn and diseases.
Rollins believes the reasons for declining populations will involve a combination of many possible reasons.

“While we never thought parasites and diseases were ever really much problem to quail, I’ll be the first to acknowledge that something is operating outside traditional paradigms,” he said. “I’m not convinced we can lay it all on weather.”
