BHA Podcast & Blast, Ep. 36: Ray Trejo, Gabe Vasquez and Fernando Clemente on the hunt for Mearns Quail

Join Hal on a camping and hunting trip for Mearns quail deep into the Chihuahua Grasslands smack-dab on the Mexican border. With him is BHA member Ray Trejo, the huntin’est conservationist in New Mexico; Gabe Vasquez, the youngest member of the Las Cruces’ City Council and a New Mexico conservation leader; and Fernando Clemente, a self-employed wildlife biologist and habitat specialist who works on both sides of the border to restore wildlife and ecosystems on private lands and has deep insight into public lands hunting and management in the U.S. It’s an after-hunt party at Trejo’s place near Deming, with Budweisers and black bear summer sausage, talking public lands, jaguars and Coues deer, ibex and oryx, the prospects of a border wall through some of the most rugged public lands wilderness in the world, and why, even when it gets down to 14 degrees in the quail country, nobody brought a real sleeping bag.
