Rolling Plains Quail Research Ranch is soliciting crop contents of quail harvested across the Rolling Plains (Texas and Oklahoma) in an attempt to compile a comprehensive seed collection of plants eaten by quail. As hunters clean birds at the end of the day’s hunt, they can dissect out the crop and empty the contents into an empty shotgun shell box so they will dry out. Then, hunters are asked to tape the seams with duct tape. However, hunters should not put them in a plastic bag, as they will mold. At the completion of the season, send the box and contents to RPQRR, P.O. Box 220, Roby, TX. The crop content analysis from these samples will constitute “Seed Appreciation Day” next May.
