Hunter Prude


I was raised on a ranch in the Davis Mountains of west Texas. I received a B.S. in Natural Resource Management from Sul Ross State University in 2011. I began working for the Armendaris Ranch, Turner Enterprises Inc. managing the desert bighorn sheep and puma populations in the Fra Christobal Mountains in 2012. I am interested in the development of non-lethal methods to prevent or reduce puma predation on desert bighorn sheep. The coalition research project that I am working on is studying the effects of anthropogenic water sources on predators and prey in desert environments.
