CONSERVATTION -- Quail Unlimited president Bill Bowles has announced on QU website that the nation's oldest quail advocacy group has folded .

Mismanagement in the national conservation group's operations has been charged for several years.

Bowles advised members to turn their allegiance to Quail Forever and related organization, Pheasants Forever, to continue the fundamental work of advocacy for upland bird habitat preservation and restoration.

That's a good recommendation.  Quail Forever/Pheasants Forever have a 4-star Charity Navigator rating.
