Quail Enhancement Program

The Quail Enhancement Program focuses on improving quail habitat and increasing the public’s knowledge of bobwhite biology, habitat requirements and management. Technical assistance to improve habitat is available to landowners free of charge by Department biologists statewide, including on-site visits and management recommendations.

A booklet entitled Bobwhite Quail in Oklahoma is available for download. The booklet discusses all aspects of quail biology and habitat requirements as well as management techniques landowners can use to improve quail populations on their property.


Any landowner in the state of Oklahoma is eligible for technical assistance, regardless of property size.

How to Enroll

No enrollment is necessary.

Who To Contact

For more information on the quail enhancement program, contact Doug Schoeling, the Department’s upland bird biologist, at 405/301-9945. According to your location in the state, a local biologist will then arrange to visit with you in person.
