Today we caught up with Texas Parks and Wildlife's John McLaughlin, West Texas Quail Program Leader and stalwart of the Texas Small Game Program. Topics discussed include quail in Texas, public hunting opportunities and how private land owners can make a little cash money by participating in the Grassland Restoration Incentive Program, or GRIP.
Yucca shreds the landscape, and the stalks of century plants reach skyward, as far as the eye can see, across prime mule deer and desert bighorn sheep habitat. Steep mountain ridges extend deep into the eastern reaches of the Chihuahuan Desert, the largest of North America's deserts, to create a very unique ecotone.
A beautiful short film from another group I REALLY enjoy following, Project Upland. Stunning landscapes. As someone addicted to the beauty and serenity of fly fishing, this is a super easy transition. It doesn't really matter where you pursue it, or the exact species you are after. It is an obsession...
I am a passionate outdoorsman with over 25 years of hunting and fishing experience across the state of TX.
