Moving On

Mar 01, 2010

I knew the day would come, but I didn't think it would come so soon. Recently, I accepted a new position within the Missouri Department of Conservation. I'm excited about the new opportunities and future challenges. With the new assignment comes new responsibilities. As a result, this will be my last quail blog for a quite a while.

I have enjoyed blogging on quail habitat management, hunting adventures and landowner success stories. I've published almost 70 blogs with the help of friends, biologists and die-hard quail hunters. I can't say thank you enough to all the magazines and people who included my stories in their publications.

In my new role I won't be spending much time on quail habitat management. I'll reserve habitat work for the weekends. I still plan to spend most of November and December in the field... quail hunting of course. I'm almost obsessed with it. Someday I'll share the passion with my sons.

Remember, Habitat is the Key.
