extend general deer season statewide until 3rd Sunday in January.


That will leave 5 weekends for after deer season quail leases.

This might put some of us out of the bird dog business.

I was just coming on to post the same thing. I just heard about this yesterday. I see no benefit to deer hunters but a huge issue for quail hunters. Hopefully, someone at TPW will listen to the quail hunters or the ranches will realize how much revenue they will lose from quail hunters and just cut off the deer hunters. it really sucks when you consider how hot February has gotten the last few years.

What I see happening is that the quail hunters are going to have to compete financially at the same price per acre as the deer hunters to obtain a lease, if they become available. I would encourage bird hunters to voice your opinions to your state legislators to try to knock this proposal down. The state is basically paring down quail season by 75% for a lot of bird hunters. Quail hunting will definitely become a rich manís game if this proposal passes.

How is it not a benefit for deer hunters? It gives us extra hunting time that the south zone already gets. Quail season starts a week before deer season and runs well past the end of the season, so quail season is already longer than deer season. It sounds like people donít want to compete with deer hunters for the same property to lease, otherwise why not lease for the entire season and this is a non-issue? It may be different in different parts of the state but no one leases just quail hunting after deer season where I hunt. The deer hunters bring in the money, quail is included for nothing extra for us.

I'm lucky to be on a full season lease, but the ranch is large enough that deer and quail run at the same time but on different land. I have no idea what deer hunters pay for ground but know they can put more folks on the same piece of land. So even if the price was the same the land owner would make more on deer hunting. So most or a lot of the good quail country in the rolling plains is quail after deer seasons so the proposed new regulations would shorten the season for a lot of quail hunters which is a bad deal. But money talks and in Kansas, Okla, and Texas good quail land is hard to lease for a full season. So I think the new regs stink.

I would bet that a large percentage of Texas quail hunters are after deer season guys. If we lose a big percentage of our hunters quail hunting will die. If there is no money from quail hunting ranchers have no incentive to manage for quail. This could crush Texas quail hunting.

Truly a scary thought. Let's hope they find a better solution to deer herd control.

If anything, they should open deer season earlier. This is a terrible idea, and I will be contacting TPWD to tell them my opinion.
