Individuals will receive valuable hands-on experience related to quail management, as well as training conducting wildlife research, wildlife surveys, common farming and ranching practices, brush management, prescribed burning, herbicide use on brush species, hunting, guiding and hospitality services, and other relevant skills. In March 2007, the Rolling Plains Quail Research Foundation was granted its own 501(c)(3) nonprofit status as a charitable organization and the deed to our Research Ranch was transferred to the Foundation later that year. Operations began in early 2008, and from that time RPQRF has invested tens of thousands of hours, millions of dollars, and so much more into research, education, and outreach for wild quail both on and off the Research Ranch. Our Research Ranch is 4700 acres of quail habitat representative of millions of acres in the Rolling Plains. It is the living laboratory in which we collect data, manage habitat, and monitor a multitude of ecological relationships. We collect data on bobwhite and scaled quail abundance, survival, reproduction, and movement; small mammal abundance; mesocarnivores; and many quail predators. Our ongoing habitat management activities include planting of food plots, invasive species control, prescribed fire, brush sculpting, and soil disturbance. Housing will be provided.
Applicants must provide proof of Veteran status (DD 214), have strong work ethic and willingness to learn new things, have an interest in hunting and the outdoors, be able to work outdoors in adverse weather conditions, be able to work early morning and/or late evenings as needed, lift at least 50 pounds, and have a valid driver’s license.
