anyone successfully release bobs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

thinking about releasing year old bobs this spring.  The surrounding 50 acres are perfect habitat.  Oldtimers around here remember bobs in the 1920's and 30's.

I'm a little more north than typical bob habitat, but bobs were last seen in a county that is a bit more west and north of me.  

 

with global warming, could be snow cover won't be as big of an issue as it might have been.  

 

any ideas?

Ive never released any myself i wanted to but read a study about doing it and several other stories that all pretty much said it was basically a waste of time if you release anything under 1000 birds. They just dont have the wild instinct to survive.
