Movement and Habitat Use of Translocated Pronghorn in Trans-Pecos, Texas

My name is Howell Pugh and I grew up in the Cross Timbers region of north Texas. Some of my favorite
memories are from those days that I spent exploring the surrounding country side searching out all the
hidden wildlife. I did not discover that you could make wildlife a career until late in life when I was
transitioning from the Army back to civilian life. After the Army, my family and I moved to San Marcos,
Texas to attend Texas State University where I received my Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Biology. I
currently working towards a Master of Science in Range and Wildlife Management while working with
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department on the pronghorn restoration project in the Trans-Pecos region of
West Texas. Movement data for pronghorn translocated in the years 2011, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, and
2018 were collected using GPS and satellite enabled collars. I will be using this data to determine the
home range and habitat use of translocated pronghorn in Trans-Pecos, Texas. This data will directly help
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and landowners make sound management decisions about the
future of pronghorn in the Trans-Pecos region.
