Texas – Nation's Stronghold is Back
Forecast: After a somewhat poor season for hunters due to a severe drought, quail received nearly perfect brood conditions all across the state, according to Robert Perez, Game Bird Project Coordinator with the Texas Department of Wildlife and Parks. The rolling plains of north central Texas and the south Texas plains should be best for bobwhites. The Trans-Pecos area of west Texas is the place to look for scaled quail.Season Dates: October 30, 2010 through February 27, 2011
Daily Bag Limit: 15
Possession Limit: 45
Field Notes: Texas' Annual Public Hunting Permit provides access to more than 1 million acres of public hunting lands. Additionally, permit holders may take children under age 17 hunting free of charge on these public hunting lands, thereby making them aware of the need for proper management of wildlife resources and introducing them to the sport hunting ethic.
