Quail Food Plot Management & Tips
Want to attract more quail? Provide habitat for brood-rearing, nesting,
loafing, roosting, and protection from predators and inclement weather and they
will come. Food plots that produce open ground at chick level with overhead
cover make ideal areas for quail chicks to be effective insect predators. With
over 90% of chicks' diets made up of high protein insects its first few weeks of
life, insect producing areas are critical to their survival. In addition, a
healthy quail population will need a good supply of seed producing plants to
provide a consistent year round food supply.
Pennington's WingMaster Quail
Mixture is a combination of seed producing plants that will provide an excellent
food source, cover, and brood-rearing areas. These seed producing plants include
Proso millets, Browntop millet, and Sunflower. Throughout the late spring and
summer months WingMaster Quail mixture will be producing seed for foraging
quail. In a staggered effect, this seed mixture will have plants maturing and
dropping seed to the ground over a long period of time. From about 60 days after
germination in early summer and extending into the winter, WingMaster will
provide an abundant supply of seed.
In addition, quail will benefit from idled or fallowed areas that are beside a
high yielding seed producing food plot. Idled or fallowed land is land that is
left undisturbed for short periods of time, usually two to three years. These
areas are best distributed across your property as edges. Field corners, field
edges, field borders, fencerows, tree lines or drainages are all ideal areas for
developing an edge effect that quail will benefit from. The greater the edge the
better, so develop them with the most edge effect derived from a long, narrow,
winding configuration. For example, an acre (209' X 209') has 836 feet of edge.
In contrast, a long, narrow linear acre, 20 feet wide and 2,178 feet long, has
4,356 feet of edge that's over three-quarters of a mile. Proper management of
these edges will consist of fall or winter disking every two to three years.
