through Mr. C. II Kudasill, Su-
pervisor of Game Distribution ot
Game, Fish and Oyster Commis-
sion, Austin, Texas As you
perhaps know, our Regional of-
fice hem at Mt. Pleasant is work-
ing up deer and turkey restora-
tion projects. In these projects
the deer and turkey will come
through me. However, outside
of doing wildlife research I am
concerned only witli major res
toration projects— a project
which will involve considerable
sums of money through the Fed-
eral Government and which will
I benefit a lar!_'e territory. Such
|a deer and turkey project is now
being conternplntod for the Red
River Country in my region. It
will cost u* several thousand dol-
lars and will, therefore, perhaps
i he the only major deer ana tur-
key project started in Northeast
Texas in lUU'.i. The Red River
'Jountry was selected because
our survey s showed it to contain
the largest tracts of forest lands
I in Northeast Texas and it is,
therefore, best suited for the
This year there were distrib-
uted in Northeast Texas about
12,000 (]uail in III! differ "jit ship-
ments. These quail were sent
I to various parties that had made
applications for them and had
promised to buy one quail for
every quail sent gratis by the
State. I believe the Stare sold
quail at 90c a piectf this year.

tirely satisfactory for such a|
project It is the opinion of'
most wildlife technicians that it
is a waste of money anJ also a i
poor policy biologically to at-'
tempt to increase quail popula-j
lations by restocking with quail!
from other regions. First of all
the quail native to a particular
region is by far always the best
adapted to that region. Second-
ly, unless landowners have de-
veloped sufficient food and cover,
no amount of wildlife plantings
will help increase the wildlife
poDulation of a territory. Any
given region will hold as much
wildlife as there is habitat—or
homes—to hold it. Some argue
that it is a good policy to intro-
duce wildlife from other regions
from a genetic standpoint.
I There are several strong points
iasrainlt this belief. First,, wild-
life thrived very well before man
J made transplantations, because
! nature made provision for such
things. Quail, for instance, do
not suffer from inbreeding be-
cause they change mates each
season and because the males |
travel throughout the country;
side some times as far as 15 j
miles each spring. These two;
facts alone hinder inbreeding, j
So, unless a particular region
has no more seed stock from
which to build up a wildlife pop-
ulation and still has a good wild-
life habitat, it is inadvisable to
introduce more individuals fiom
other regions. In such cases as
deer and turkey it will, of course,
be necessary to practice planting
because the seed stock is gone,"
It is our sincere hope that oth-
er communities will become in-
terested in a Game Preserve
Program to the extent that a;
large portion of the area will bel
put under an official preserve!
before the hunting season opens!
so that hunting may be CON-!
TROLLE D by each landowner or
operator rather than stopping;
hunting. The too, this program
hopes to improve the feeds,
feeding grounds and cover for
such birds and animals so that
there will be not only a better
quality product, but also more
of such birds and animals.
