Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Sportfish and Wildlife Restoration Program

The September issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine offers a forecast for the hunting season ahead. Managing Editor, Louie Bond.

We have our hunting forecast in which we put on our turban, and we hold the card up to our forehead and say, ‘where is hunting going to be great, and what’s going to be plentiful, and what might not be. And, John Jefferson is a great long-time outdoors man and writer, and he interviews all of our top-notch biologists, and we analyze the weather…there’s a lot of complex factors that go into our prognostication. And we may get it right most of the time, or we may get a few things wrong, so…it’s very interesting, though, to try to look ahead and foresee the future. And then another really interesting article that we’re featuring this month is about dove hunting, and whether we should be using lead shot or not in hunting dove. Interestingly enough, this study that we’re doing is so extensive and so important that worldwide wildlife groups are waiting for the results of this. We’re studying every aspect of it. So, not only will our hunters be watching this, but worldwide people are going to be watching this to see where it’s going to lead. So, get out your camo; make sure it’s all ready; get our your guns and get them cleaned; buy your shot and get ready for a great hunting season.

Thanks Louie.

That’s our show…supported by a grant from the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program… working to increase fishing, hunting, shooting and boating opportunities in Texas.
