Country Legend George Strait Honored with T. Boone Pickens Lifetime Sportsman Award

Park Cities Quail will present legendary country singer, conservationist and avid sportsman George Strait with its T. Boone Pickens Lifetime Sportsman Award on March 6, 2014.

Park Cities Quail (PCQ), a Dallas-based nonprofit, will present legendary singer, conservationist and avid sportsman George Strait with its T. Boone Pickens Lifetime Sportsman Award at the annual PCQ Dinner and Auction at the Frontiers of Flight Museum on March 6, 2014. The award is presented annually to a sportsman who demonstrates a passion for the outdoors and respect for natural resources, along with the generosity necessary to perpetuate the sporting life for future generations.

“We look forward to honoring George Strait, a true national treasure. In addition to his unparalleled career in the music industry, George is a respected third generation rancher, conservationist and humanitarian who generously shares his resources and influence to make this world a better place,” said PCQ Chairman Emeritus T. Boone Pickens. ” George is a lifelong hunter, fisherman and world-class roper. It is clear when you see the remarkable habitat at his ranches, and hear him speak of his love for the land, that he is a sportsman and conservationist with a tremendous knowledge of wildlife. George shares our passion and commitment to see the region’s wild quail population restored to historic levels and creating recreational opportunities for sportsmen.”

“It’s such an honor for me to be given this award. As a lifelong hunter, I’ve grown to appreciate the fact that we have to take care of our wildlife. The quail population in South Texas, which is where I am from, has been in serious decline for quite a few years now. We have to be concerned about it and make their restoration a priority so that generations to come will continue to have them to enjoy,” said George Strait.
