Years ago a friend created a bumper sticker that said, “I Love Animals, I am a Hunter.”
COLEMAN COUNTY -- A lot of times a plan does not come together in hunting. Maybe most of the time.
When it comes to bass fishing, I think I am like most East Texas fishermen and go for the soft plastics first. With all the grass and trees we have in lakes, it is easy to see why a Texas-rigged worm got its start around here.
There are hunts and then there are adventures where the hunt is just one part of the whole.
If you think the early spring weather has been crazy, just think about how a bass must feel.
There is more to the spring turkey season than turkey hunting. You might call it the opening of the 2023 deer season.
It turns out that returning wild turkeys to the woods of East Texas is not going to be a sprint. It has become a marathon with the finish line still a long way in the distance.
It was more than 30 years ago, but I remember my first successful attempt to call up a Rio Grande wild turkey like it just happened.
It is getting to be that time of year when just about everything short of a bare hook is going to catch bass, and even that might work.
It was a short discussion, a minor part in a Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Commission briefing, but surprising.
