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 Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
