In June of 2012 I attended the Buckskin Brigades Wildlife Camp held on the Southern Star Ranch near Uvalde, Texas . The wildlife brigades are a five day wildlife leadership camp. These camps are designed to teach different aspects of wildlife management. There are 7 wildlife camps held across Texas. These camps include the Buckskin Brigades, Bass Brigades, Quail Brigades, Waterfowl Brigades and the Ranch Brigades.
While I was at these camps I participated in wildlife habitat management, plant identification, firearm safety, archery, deer nutrition, and photography. We also attended leadership training and a course in Texas wildlife law. The Texas hunter safety class is also taught at the Buckskin Brigades.
I enjoyed this camp and I learned a lot. My trip was sponsored by the Mason County Soil and Water Conservation District and I wish to thank them for theirsupport of this program.
The brigades will be held again this summer. To attend one of these camps go to the Texas brigades website www.texasbrigades.org.
Deadline for entry is March 15, 2013.
