Please welcome our newest Board member, Dr. Dwayne Elmore. Dr. Elmore is a Professor, Wildlife Extension Specialist, and Bollenbach Chair in Wildlife Biology in the Department of Natural Resource Ecology and Management at Oklahoma State University. He earned degrees in wildlife biology from the University of Tennessee-Martin, Mississippi State University, and Utah State University. Dwayne works with various stakeholders including private landowners, state and federal agencies, and private conservation organizations to assist them with wildlife habitat management. His research is primarily focused on upland game birds, and he has worked with 10 different species including northern bobwhite. Dwayne is passionate about all things quail including hunting, bird dogs, research, and land management. He and his wife help manage family property in southern Georgia for bobwhite and gopher tortoises, and he is especially interested in helping other landowners achieve their wildlife management objectives.
We are very excited to have Dr. Elmore on the Board to share his expertise as we continue to grow and diversify RPQRF. Look for September’s Dr. Dale on Quail podcast to hear of Dr. Elmore and his colleagues’ efforts in quail management in Oklahoma.
