What's the status of Mountain Quail in Idaho? Are there any still in the Owyhees and Boise Foothills?

Answer:

There is no open hunting season for mountain quail in Idaho.  Historically, there were mountain quail in Owyhee County and the Boise Foothills.  Currently, there may be a few isolated populations of mountain quail in the Owyhee Mountains, but there have not been any credible sightings documented.   We have reports of a few mountain quail sightings in the Garden Valley to Lowman area.
