Released Quail

Background Information

Northern bobwhite may be released and taken by shotgun only on the following areas, provided each individual or group possesses a daily released quail permit and proof (including the name and address of the vendor and date of purchase) that the birds were purchased within the past 90 days from a game farm licensed by the Commission or another state. 

How do I get my permit?

Daily quail release permits are available free of charge at Once logged in, click on the "Purchase a License" link to find the permit under the "Hunting Permits" section. Please note that the permit will only show up if you already possess, or placed in your shopping cart, a hunting license.  


Area-specific restrictions may apply. Be sure to only choose dates that are listed in the area brochures for details.
