NEXT CHAPTER MEETING:  7:00 P.M. Tuesday, May 19, 2015 @ Cabela’s-- Louisville

KDFWR recently conducted a series of previously-announced “Quail Summits” across the Commonwealth to provide information regarding past efforts and future plans to restore quail populations.  The Department was also soliciting inputs from quail enthusiasts regarding these plans.  The closest one to our area was in Elizabethtown.  Your Chapter was well-represented even though the attendance was far short of what it should have been.

SOUTHERN KY CHAPTER QUAIL FOREVER will be holding their annual banquet on Saturday, June 20 at Cambridge Market, 830 Fairview Avenue, Bowling Green, KY.  Social hour starts at 5:30 P.M., Dinner at 6:30 P.M., Live Auction at 7:30 P.M.  $25.00 per person plus $35.00 dues.  Dues not required if you are currently a member of a different QF Chapter.  Please show your membership card at the door.  For more info call Russ Hopper at 270 991 0513.  I believe Bowling Green is on CDT.  Please confirm when you make your reservations with Russ.    

FLOYD’S FORK PARKLANDS HABITAT PROJECT is currently under consideration.  Your Chapter has purchased a sprayer and donated it to the Parklands.  The sprayer will be used for a variety of purposes including the enhancement of habitat for ground-nesting birds including Bobwhite quail.  We are currently in the preliminary stages of developing a habitat project that is specifically focused on quail.  Site selection and scope of the project TBD.  More info will be provided as the project gains momentum.

SEED FOR HABITAT was distributed at our last meeting.  We have additional bags of milo available and will have them for you at the next meeting.  Plan to arrive between 6:00 and 6:45 if you wish to pick up free 50 lb. bags of milo.  These planting will provide winter cover and food for quail and other ground-nesting birds.  Deer and turkey will also benefit from your plantings.

TAYLORSVILLE WMA DOG TRAINING AREA is coming to fruition.  Attend the next meeting to learn more about the location and restrictions for using this area.  Per statewide regulations it will be closed from 5/15 thru 8/15.  There are some signage requirements that will be put in place prior to August 15 in addition to disking and planting that needs to be completed in June.
