Texas Tech University

May 2023

Influence of Agriculture Production and Anthropomorphic Structures on Pronghorn Movements, Survival, and Diet in the Texas Panhandle

Gary was raised on a small farm outside Munday, TX. Much of his childhood consisted of hunting, trapping, fishing, and a general desire to get his hands on anything that moved. He received his B.S. from Texas Tech University in Natural Resources Management in 2014. After my graduation, he worked on a few projects in Wyoming, working with local government as well as the state department again. He has worked with endangered species such as Black Footed Ferret, Prebles Meadow Jumping Mouse, and the charismatic Grizzly Bear. He completed his M.S. project monitoring pronghorn movements via GPS collars, and using the data to determine how roads, fence lines, and other barriers can alter movements and affect both their diet and their survival. Gary currently works for Wyoming Game and Fish Department.
