Upland Hunting in the Prairie StateThere are two primary factors that influence pheasant and quail populations: the weather and habitat. We still can't seem to control the weather, so at Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever we focus our efforts on providing quality habitat for our favorite birds (and a lot of other wildlife at the same time). When it comest to habitat, it's both the limited quantity of habitat as well as the poor quality of the little habitat which remains. Not surprisingly, lack of habitat for upland game not only influences wildlife populations, it also is directly related to a lack of opportunity for hunters. In fact, a survey of Illinois hunteres identified "access" as the top challenge facing upland hunters.
At PF/QF in Illinois we share a vision that in every county served by one of our 60 PF and QF chapters, we should have at least 80 acres of walk-in upland hunting available. We're a long way from that today, but we're committed to moving towards realizing that vision in the future. In the meantime, we're going to do our best to provide Illinois small game hunters information on where they can chase roosters and gentleman bob.
