Mr. R, A. Kolb Chelsea Wisconsin Dear Mr. Molbt Your :plan for est:blishinr quail is -sound as far as I can determine from a paper description. 'Much, of course, depends on the kind of food and -over on the land. This is too complicated a matter to set forth on paper, but I wrill try to drop in on you oometime during the aumaer to see if I can contribute any suggestions. Otto Beyer, Beyer Game a Portag:e, Wisconsin, havndles quail of diconsin oriiin. I do not '.now his prices. I suggest you write him direct. I do not see rhy half a dozen bird shou-ld not suifice for the kind of planting you have in mind. A dozen would, of course, be better. Yes, quail are subject to many poultry diseases and often these diseases are more or less harmless tc poultry but deadly to quail. I would consider it important to confine them on clean ground and keep them as far away as nossible from poultry. You might escape the labor of building a winter nen by plant- ing a food patch and letting the birds winter in the wild. In future years this will be necessary in any event, especially at your latitude. I would suggest a mixture of sorsjan and buckwheat, fV anked by a ptch of corn. It is important that the location of this patch be right. You may get some hints on location from the attached paner. If the birds are wintered in pens they should be released by April. Quail will have to be mrsed along in order to maintain themselves permanently that far north, aad I doubt if you can hold the birds except on extra favorable found. The extent to hich your ground is favorable I can tell only by a Personal visit, With best regards, Youre sincerely, ALDO IEOPOLD In Charge, Game Research AL-Vh Encl.
