I see that the proposal to allow a uniform deer season in Texas did not happen.
Reason?? Quail Hunters!!
So the vast majority of hunters in Texas (deer) do not get to have an additional 2 weeks added to their season because of great plains quail hunters??
Some changes need to be made in the decision makers...

That's BS if that is the reason. In counties with huntable quail pops how many deer hunters would have been impacted by allowing quail hunters to start early like normal? Hardly any as it was an extension and most are done hunting anyway. Let quail hunters still hunt after Dec as they do now. Most deer hunter hunt rut only anyway and doe and late spike season has been around a while with no issues. It would have been a nice to have.

Here's who makes all the decisions:

You would starve if you depended on eating quail taken from where I hunt.
I've probably seen one quail in the last four years.

Sounds about right, 90% supported it and they went and satisfied the 10%. What a joke.

Pretty sure Bass would have lost his trust fund if he voted for it.

I would think that deer hunters stimulate the economy considerably more than quail hunters do. Of course, a logical reason should never be considered in making any type of decision.

But quail hunters raise more money for conservation. Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Pretentious Highland Park dandees is probably closer to the mark.

Here's a thought!....Extend the season for all counties with the exception of those great plains quail counties! nidea

I guess TPWD never heard of the word "compromise!"

Or just get on the MLD program, which ironically is what most the influence ranches are already on...
