New quail conservation group looks for members

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 

A new group to promote quail hunting and conservation is up and running in Albany and looking for new members.

After Quail Unlimited went out of business, an effort to start a Quail Forever chapter here never fully got off the ground early last year. Now, the Southwest Georgia Quail Forever Chapter is active.

They plan to raise money to promote habitat conservation, youth education and hunting, and public land acquisition and development.  Treasurer Tommy Gregors said, "With so many things going on, I think it's important to get our youth involved in these kind of activities that are safe, educational and fun activities and not some of the bad things that they can get involved with.

The group is one of eight Quail Forever chapters in Georgia.

Leaders hope to have their first banquet to teach people what they're all about in the fall.
