Recently, I have been in Coleman County, Texas; attending the Bobwhite Brigade. For those of you who aren't familiar with the Texas Brigade camps, they are a five and a half day camp that teaches about conservation, management, habitat evaluation, and leadership skills.
I chose to attend the Rolling Plains Bobwhite Brigade; because there used to be quail in our area and since I show quail in 4-H. In this post, I am just going to tell by favorite parts that way future cadets can be surprised.

Another activity I enjoyed, was taking a pretest and a posttest on quail, plants, and information on quail. This really proved to me how much I learned. On the pretest, I only knew the names of two quail plants, mesquite and croton. On the posttest, I was able to identify all of the plants in the test.
If you raise quail, hunt quail, like quail, or if just want to learn more about wildlife, I would highly recommend the Brigade program. It is really fun, and it provides you with information that will come in handy when discussing quail. Also, the brigades help you become a better, speaker as well as a leader. If you have any questions, please let me know.
