West Texas Ranchers Sustaining Northern Bobwhite Quail Populations

West Texas Ranchers Sustaining Northern Bobwhite Quail Populations

Wildlife Resources

Hunting the Northern Bobwhite Quail is popular in Texas, and it can provide additional income to ranches and rural communities. The problem is
that quail populations decrease during dry years and increase during periods of normal or above normal rainfall. Since rainfall patterns vary considerably in Texas, so do quail populations. A lot of time and money is allocated toward learning how to sustain bobwhite populations in a more stable manner and
progress has occurred.


Texas Mule Deer

Texas Mule Deer

Wildlife Resources

As far as Texas deer, the desert mule deer is the less common cousin of Texas’ most prominent deer—the whitetail. Because its range is found in the least populated regions of Texas, many aren’t as familiar with the deer who roams chiefly in the Texas Panhandle and the mountains and basins of the Trans-Pecos. It’s a cousin to the more manic whitetail, and that’s part of the biological problem. The mule deer as a species isn’t as adaptable as the whitetail, doesn’t breed as quickly or as often as a whitetail, has a narrow range of acceptable habitats and doesn’t feed or breed as aggressively as the whitetail and therefore is more easily extirpated.

There is a difference in landowners. There are landowners that take from the land and there are landowners that give to the land. TWA is made up of the givers.


What Does Your  Trophy Score? Beyond the Tape Measure

What Does Your Trophy Score? Beyond the Tape Measure

Wildlife Resources

One well-known, self-proclaimed deer expert has defined a trophy whitetail as a buck with antlers that measure 150 or more inches, but for generations of hunters a true trophy hunting experience goes beyond the tape measure. By this definition, the animal itself, or rather the antlers, is the trophy without regard to the experience of finding, watching, hunting or harvesting the animal and without regard to how the antlers were produced.
