Open grasslands and deciduous woody vegetation are key components of habitat. The estimated habitat available is about 800,000 hectares. The minimum breeding population in spring 1993 was estimated at 4600 from a small sample of dancing-ground counts. Statistics from a hunter sample confirmed the order of magnitude.

There is then, no imminent threat to the survival of the subspecies in the province. A recommendation is made that it be removed from the Wildlife Branch Blue List of vulnerable or sensitive species. However, populations have declined, or suffered extirpation, over much of southern British Columbia.
