August 7 Monthly Meeting: Progression of the Wildlife Industry, from Survival to Sport and Profit

The meeting will be held at Brookhaven College, in the Miles Building H-125.  See below for more information on the location and time.

Our August NTMN Program discusses the early use of wildlife as a food source. After the Great Depression and WWII, sport hunting became popular and through the decades it has evolved into a commercial business.  Also, we will have a discussion on hunting leases and how Texas became “leased up” over a 40 year period.  Alternatives to hunting leases to bring in income for landowners will be discussed.

About the speaker:

Ricky Linex is a wildlife biologist for the Natural Resources Conservation Service which covers 51 counties in north central Texas.  He is the author of “Range Plants of North Central Texas, A Land User’s Guide to Their Identification, Value and Management” – a plant identification book for Texas detailing various regional grasses, forbs, and woody plants – which was honored as an “Outstanding Publication” by the Texas Chapter of The Wildlife Society, the Native Plant Society of Texas, and the Texas Section of the Society of Range Management.
