Texas Parks and Wildlife Television Series

Description: 
El Paso Trails, Saving Some Bison & a Shifting Sands The Trailblazer We meet a trail building legend in El Paso. The Franklin Mountain range is the largest sustained mountain range in Texas, and has some of the best mountain biking trails in the state. We’ll meet the man that has built many of those trails, and is still building at the age of seventy nine. Lone Star Land Steward: H. Yturria Land & Cattle Co. Originally founded by Francisco Yturria, the 24,000-acre H. Yturria Land and Cattle Co. has been in the family for 157 years. The Butler family has worked tirelessly to develop the habitat and distribute water for all game and non-game species across the ranch. The Butlers have restored Rio Grande wild turkey populations in the area by trapping and restocking. This effort has proven successful and allowed them to provide birds for translocations to several adjacent landowners. Producer’s Favorites: Rescuing History Television news producer Karen Loke has worked at Texas Parks and Wildlife for 24 years. In 1998 she spent 10 days on the J.A. Ranch in the Texas Panhandle documenting the capture and relocation of the last of the Southern Plains Bison herd.
