I don't see the scaled quail on your list? I was almost certain Justin and I saw some run through a fenced hedge row!
One thing that my granddaughter and I enjoyed was seeing the roadrunners. She had never seen one and I hadn't seen one in many years! A quite exotic unique bird! Also great to have in snake country since they eat them!
Seeing the birds down there that we don't have up north was one of the highlights of my trip to the Rockin' G. Especially the roadrunners like you said. Once when driving through Quiteque (don't know if I spelled that right!) I saw one running through a yard and it looked just like a scene from a movie where the main character is passing through a near deserted southwestern town! Other species that I don't get to see at home included the quail and cardinals. And the turkeys...wow! Very, very cool place.

Yessir, we do have scalies but they are so few and far between anymore I don’t list them. They are about as common as mountain lion which we do have as well but extremely unlikely to see one and even less likely to get a shot at one.

Good job gizmo. I never saw armadillo on the list? The "one" I would be after.

PS I know a guy that could "play" secretary for hunted species pay?? Haha

Way to go, I would like a Texas hunt someday. Need this Covid to go.

Congratulations on making the list. That really is a great confirmation of all the hard work that has been done by you, Kris, and the rest of the crew there.

Congratulations!!! I may need to look into booking a hunt, since Africa seems unlikely for me this year.
We’d love to have you.

Congratulations Gizmo for your work in conservation! How has the recent weather affected your animals?
We have been very fortunate to get out with minimal loss. Our animals are climatized to the weather up here and we stay significantly colder than the rest of Texas in the winter. It was tough for sure by most everything did just fine.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
