The 2015-2016 quail hunting season will go down in the books as one of the best-ever on record for South Texas.
The big question I have been getting lately is: Will the boom last? Translation: Will we have another year of great quail hunting in 2016-2017? The answer: It depends. It depends mostly on El Niño.
It is no secret to deer managers that deer body and antler size is determined by a combination of age, nutrition, and genetics. Recent research findings at the CKWRI may give insight into why nutritional deficiencies, not genetics, most likely cause the body weight and antler size differences seen in deer across South Texas.
