2016 was a banner year for quail numbers and quail hunters alike. But since then the bobwhite has again fallen on hard times. Is it due to weather or other factors like predation or even the increasing number of feral hogs on the landscape, what about parasites? Our old friend Dr. Dale Rollins of the Rolling Plains Quail Research Ranch makes his return to the broadcast to shed some light on the before mentioned topics and why bobwhites are once again on the skids. Dr. Rollins is currently enjoying his 52nd season chasing these sporty little birds
Then it’s the buck everyone has been talking about. The Collin County monster taken by hunter Chad Jones. When I heard the buck was killed in my home county, I figured we needed to hear the tale firsthand. Thanks to the power of social media I was able to get in touch with Chad and he was more than happy to come to the studio to talk about hunting this once in a lifetime buck. The Green Score was 235 3/8 inches which would put the deer top 5 all time for Texas archery bucks.
