Episode 3 (Nov 2020) Upland Game Bird Program and 2020 Quail Hunting Forecast

Join NM Wildlife Podcast as we talk with Casey Cardinal, the Department’s Resident Game Bird Biologist, and discuss upland game bird research and surveys throughout the state. We discuss everything from quail to grouse to pheasants and then talk in a little more detail on quail hunting in New Mexico and the outlook for the 2020 season!


It is the mission of the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish to conserve, regulate, propagate and protect the wildlife and fish within the State of New Mexico, using a flexible management system that ensures sustainable use for public food supply, recreation and safety—and to provide for off-highway motor vehicle recreation that recognizes cultural, historic and resource values while ensuring public safety.
