Congratulations to Katelyn Anderson on winning the Wildlife Management Plan contest sponsored by Texas Farm Credit! A management plan is a report that outlines a landowner’s goals and objectives for his property. This could mean his plan for how he intends to improve the landscape for a certain species of animal, to eliminate a type of invasive plant, etc. Katelyn’s management plan was about how her family intends to integrate bobwhite quail back onto their land. During the 50’s and 60’s quail were found throughout East Texas, but due to many moving factors such as changes in prescribed fire, grazing practices, and general habitat changes, quail numbers drastically declined. Today, they can be found in very small numbers sporadically across East Texas. Because of her write up, she placed first in the competition and received a lifetime hunting license for her work!
