Quail hunting at Goose Pond FWA postponed this weekend

Friday, December 28, 2012

Due to the large amount of snowfall at Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area this week, no quail hunting will be allowed on Saturday (Dec. 29).

In extreme weather conditions, DNR biologists reserve the option to cancel quail hunting when it may cause undue stress to the quail population in that area, according to a news release issued Friday afternoon.

So,, no stress to something they are shooting, therefore killing. Really? I am thinking target rich environment.

Equipmentguy, the stress is on the population, not the quail.
