Letter: Wants information on quail

Maury Lewis writes:
Looking for information:

I was wondering if there is anyone in our area that raises quail to release into the wild. My daddy used to raise them when I was a child and I thought I might try some. I have already contacted the Fish and Wildlife people but I would like to talk to someone and see the way they grow them off for release into the wild. Their cages and where they get their quail from. --Maury Lewis, 270-634-2092
