Kentucky quail counts holding their own, hatch looked good It’s a bit unclear what quail hunters will experience this fall in Kentucky. Fall covey counts won’t be completed and available until early November, but results from the annual Rural Mail Carrier Survey, which is completed during the last week of July, were identical to 2016. 

Last year was a poor quail-hunting season in Kentucky, according to John Morgan, quail coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. The mail carrier survey tends to be a fairly good indicator of the coming hunting season.

“However, the extraordinarily mild winter did hamper hunting conditions,” he says. “If we experience a more normal winter, hunting should be better this season than last.”
