    I know in some states they don't. Does anyone know whether NC requires a gamebird license for Coturnix? If you don't know about NC, does your state require one for Coturnix?

    I dont know about NC but it shouldnt i wouldnt think as they're not from the US. Atleast that's why they don't require a permit here. Bobwhite, Phesants and many others however I need a permit to raise, which is why I don't raise them.

    Well actually im wording that wrong, I can raise Bobwhites without a permit, I just can't sell trade barder or give away (Or release) them without a permit.

    My Coturnix and Button Quails are omited from needing a permit because "they do not originate from US" Which I find funny since you need a permit for Phesants yet they dont originate frmo the US lol!

    The only quail we need a permit for in Ohio is Bobwhite, not sure about NC. Here is a link to a site that you might be able to find some info or contact someone who would know for sure. http://www.ncwildlife.org/index.htm

    Kim,
    I was told by NCWRC that (ALL) quail classify as gamebirds. But heck It took memonths to find a game warden who could even tell me if I needed a permit for bobwhites. Silly Silly regualtion. IN my opinion it is all a money racket here in NC.[​IMG]
