Rolling Plains Quail Research Ranch

Our Vision:  We will provide land managers, and other stakeholders, with timely, relevant technology and management schemes for enhancing quail populations in the Rolling Plains of Texas.  In doing so, we will sustain the “quail dynasty” that has supported hunters, ranchers, local economies, hunters, and (of course) the quails themselves.

The Rolling Plains Quail Research Ranch is a unique laboratory–there is no other ranch or entity devoted solely to the study of wild quail.  The Ranch is used as a research and demonstration facility to foster our understanding and management of bobwhite and scaled quail in West Texas. Quail are the focus of all we do on the Ranch. Whether it’s our prescribed burning, grazing management or our fondness for certain “weeds”—everything here points to quail!
