Jeremiah Caughron is an accomplished construction and restoration expert who has owned and operated Tayga Texas since 2017. Outside of the professional arena, Jeremiah Caughron is an avid drone enthusiast who is currently exploring the potential of drone-based cattle herding.

In this pursuit, he is following in the footsteps of high-tech ranchers who have already learned how to modify drone airframes and direct drone propeller wash to heard cattle effectively and remotely. Although the sound and the force of the drone propeller may initially be enough to prompt movement in cattle, ranchers can also add a siren to the drone to provide extra motivation.

A drone camera can also help ranchers locate and identify specific animals. Even better, a thermal camera can detect cattle under the cover of dense vegetation while differentiating them from other sources of heat.

Dr. John Church of the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology sees far-reaching implications for drone herding coupled with radio-frequency identification (RFID). By placing an RFID tag on each animal, ranchers may one day be able to input a specific RFID number that will enable a drone to find any given animal in the field.

One of the main story arcs will follow the law firm's efforts to overcome the disbarment of its lead partner Robert Zane, who was actually covering up for Harvey Specter (Macht).

1. Idaho County - Boone & Crockett (B&C) is a nonprofit that promotes hunting for habitat conservation. Its records indicate that Idaho boasts the largest and highest amount of quality mountain lions. Five of the state's top 10 largest mountain lions recorded have come from Idaho County. Access to prime areas might be difficult, especially in the winter, so using a snowmobile is suggested. 

2. Lincoln County - This Montana county boasts three of the top 10 B&C recorded cats in the state and shares a border with the Canadian province of British Columbia, which is considered the best area in North America to find trophy-quality mountain lions. The region also has several mountain goats, bighorn sheep, and large herds of elk. 

3. Garfield and Eagle Counties - These two Colorado counties received a score of 82 out of 100 from regarding mountain lion quality. Mesa County and Rio Blanco are also known for being prime mountain lion hunting locations.
