Spread Oaks Ranch: A Valuable Partner in Conservation

“This is a unique property in that it is actively managed for wildlife, ranching and farming,” said DU Regional Biologist Taylor Abshier. “Conservation is very important to Forrest. The projects we’ve done out here speak to that. From using water from Blue Creek via a re-lift pump for irrigation and switching from only row crops to including rice and utilizing some of DU’s water-wase practices, the ranch takes conservation and using natural resources efficiently seriously. Tying in their management for waterfowl and deer hunting, Spread Oaks Ranch is a great example of how hunting and conservation can work hand in hand.”

Texas' Ducks

The Prairie Pothole Region is critical to Texas waterfowl hunters.

The vast majority of Texas' annual duck harvest migrates to us from the Prairie Pothole Region, also referred to as "the duck factory."

The Prairie Pothole Region is DU's #1 conservation focus area. In addition Texas benefits from DU's Gulf Coast, Great Southern Plains and West Gulf Coastal Plain conservation work as the organization continues to conserve critical waterfowl habitat in the Lone Star State.

There is no waterfowl conservation organization that represents the needs of Texas waterfowl hunters like Ducks Unlimited.

Our vital conservation work provides support to our migration both on the breeding grounds and here at home.

With your help, we will preserve our waterfowl hunting heritage through habitat conservation of these areas vital to the Texas migration and harvest.
