SCDNR talks everything quail to kick off opening dayNovember 22, 2016

Monday, Nov. 21, marked the first day of quail season in South Carolina. And to celebrate opening day, SCDNR hosted a Facebook Live video with Lt. Michael Paul Thomas and Small Game Coordinator Michael Hook.

The two discussed the basics of quail hunting and what is needed in order to pursue the sport, conservation efforts being made to sustain the quail populations and habitats within the state, and the overall history of quail in South Carolina. People viewing the live feed commented with their questions and Lt. Thomas and Hook gave responses.

SCDNR plans to host more of these videos on different topics as Facebook Live allows members of the agency to interact with the public and give immediate answers to inquiries. All future videos will be promoted on SCDNR’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages prior to going live.

Questions regarding quail can be directed to Lt. Thomas or Hook at the following email addresses:
