Oologah Wildlife Management Area’s quail habitat will improve thanks to a generous donation to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. The Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission voted to accept a donation of $2,500 from the Indian Territory Chapter of Quail Forever at its regular meeting July 9 in Oklahoma City.

“This is a great donation from Quail Forever,” said Alan Peoples, chief of wildlife for the Wildlife Department. “These types of efforts and contributions from groups like Quail Forever help the Department provide better habitat for wildlife and better hunting for sportsmen.”

The $2,500 will be used to help purchase a no-till drill and a 12′ disc to conduct quail habitat improvement activities on Oologah WMA. Oologah WMA covers 12,941 acres in Nowata and Rogers counties in northeastern Oklahoma.

The Wildlife Conservation Commission is the eight-member governing board of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. The Wildlife Commission establishes state hunting and fishing regulations, sets policy for the Wildlife Department, and indirectly oversees all state fish and wildlife conservation activities. Commission members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Senate.

The next scheduled Commission meeting is slated for 9 a.m. Aug. 6 at the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation headquarters (auditorium), at the southwest corner of 18th and North Lincoln, Oklahoma City.
