A new Quail Forever Chapter has formed in the southern San Joaquin Valley with a stated mission of repairing small game guzzlers and other water sources throughout the region. The primary focus will be in the Temblor and Caliente mountain ranges that line the Carrizo Plain. There were a pair of formation meetings Jan. 28 and 30 in Bakersfield and the fledgling group delivered 650 gallons of water to a pair of guzzlers in the Carrizo region this past weekend. That’s hitting the ground running!
The next meeting of the new South Valley Chapter of Quail Forever will be 7 p.m. Thursday, February 20 at the Sugarmill Restaurant on Chester Ave., Bakersfield. If you need more information or want to be involved but can’t make the meeting, contact Rusty Stone at 661-549-3359 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
Please let your hunting buddies in this area know about the new club. To help get membership, the club is offering copies of a special issue of the Western Birds hunting newsletter with the locations of all the guzzlers in this area. Everyone who joins the new club will get a copy.
