Once upon a time quail hunting was a popular sport all around Henryetta and the entire area.
An effort to bring back the sport is being made through formation of Quail Forever chapters. One of those chapters is sought for the Henryetta and Okemah area with a meeting Nov. 10. It will be held at Pepino’s Mexican restaurant in Okemah at 6:30 p.m.
Laura McIver, representative for Oklahoma and Texas Quail Forever, said it open to the public.
To be discussed will be landowner education and awareness, habitat restoration and rehabilitation and introducing young people to shooting sports.
