Upland Game of the post Oak Savannah and Blackland Prairie

Mourning dove

Upland game generally refers to wild game species (species with a regulated hunting season) whose habitat is primarily found on upland sites (high ground). In the Post Oak Savannah and Blackland Prairie ecological regions of Texas, the most abundant upland game species is the mourning dove (Zenaida macroura). Although not as numerous as mourning dove, wild turkey, (Meleagris gallipavo) and bobwhite quail (Colinus virginianus) are also found in localized areas where adequate habitat and space exists.
