In September, the Project Upland Podcast traveled to North Dakota during the course of filming one leg of the upcoming feature film, Public Grouse. After a few days spent walking the prairie in search of public land sharp-tailed grouse and Hungarian partridge, we sat down with our host, Tyler Webster of the Birds Booze and Buds Podcast, along with his guest Jonathan O’Dell of Arizona Game and Fish.
“What most people don’t know is that we’re [Arizona] probably what I always refer to as the small game state. It’s all about biodiversity…”Jonathan O’Dell – Arizona Game & Fish
Tune in to this episode of the Project Upland Podcast as Tyler, Jonathan and myself discuss public land upland birds from Arizona to North Dakota. We talk about the opportunities for upland hunting presented in both states as well as compare and contrast the styles of hunting and habitat variation found in each location. We also mix in a little squirrel and rabbit hunting, combined with championship cook-offs and call it a podcast.

“Quail hunters in Arizona spend the majority of their time pursuing three species of quail, Gambel’s, scaled or Mearns’. A fourth, the California quail, receives little hunting pressure and is found along the Little Colorado River drainage near Springerville. The masked bobwhite, a fifth species, is federally listed as an endangered species, and if still persisting in the wild, is found only on the Buenas Aires Refuge southwest of Tucson.”
