NEWBERRY — Once a part of the National Quail Unlimited, the chartering members of Newberry Quail and Dove decided to form Midstate Quail and Dove. The program is tasked and focused on youth and wildlife programs for the midlands areas of South Carolina.
The organization was formed in 2010, holding its first fundraising event in March of that year. Because the group is a private organization as well as non-profit, no one gets paid, although they do have a board of directors, according to Donnie Brown, president of the group.
Midstate Quail and Dove holds 12 to 20 youth events each year, including hunter education courses, fishing rodeos, turkey hunds and dove shoots, and deer, rabbit, duck, and quail hunts. For more information about the organization, call 276-1884.
