Quail Added to Dallas Convention

July 1, 2011 | By | Reply More

Long known as a big annual event for big-game hunters, the Dallas Safari Club (DSC) convention and expo is expanding in 2012 to include attractions focused on quail and other upland birds.

This is the result of a new partnership between DSC and Quail Coalition, a Texas-based organization focused on upland bird conservation in Texas.

Slated for Jan. 5-8 at the Dallas Convention Center, the 2012 DSC convention and expo will feature a section called “Upland Country” sponsored by Quail Coalition. Planned highlights include exhibits, dog-training demonstrations, conservation seminars by Dr. Dale Rollins, and special appearances by quail enthusiast T. Boone Pickens.

“Over time, we hope this show will become the premier annual gathering place for the upland-bird-hunting nation,” said Jay Stine of Quail Coalition.

Maybe for the Southwest, but it’ll be a tall order to outdo Pheasants Forever’s annual Pheasant Fest.

Quail Coalition says it is a volunteer organization with no paid staff. All dollars raised are devoted to upland bird research, habitat improvement and public education.
