Had some time to put this together tonight so here tis !

Altho Texas has lots of wide open spaces, cowboys and critters, it's more than that.

Some of the best music in the country came out of Texas and was the home of Janis Joplin, Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughn, B. J. Thomas, Mark Chesnut, Tracy Byrd, Bob Wills and many many others.

Here are some videos that show you just a glimpse of my beloved LONE STAR STATE

Lots of stuff to see and do

Har dee har har har - - - - those ol boys aren't Texans, they're N.C.Redneck rappers

I will say this, however, that calling a big Rio Grande Gobbler in during Spring Season when they are mating is probably the most exciting type of hunting that I've ever done and I've hunted many species of game including Elk and Mtn. Goats.

There's a saying among Turkey hunters that goes - - - "If a Turkey could smell then you would never be able to kill one with a shotgun" - - - their hearing and eye sight is better than most critters in the wild.

 

Take a look at this video and get the "real skinny" from a "Real Texas Turkey Hunter" hahahahaha

Notice how the Toms come in and show off for the Ladies (decoys) - - one mistake by the hunter and they would be gooooooone

Those are some dumb azz turkeys,, strut right up to those decoys,, strut their stuff to some broad that ain't moving ,that  probably smells like fiberglass or plastic. and then stick around after their buddys get blasted,,, or run over and jump on the poor blasted dude, and most likely asks him "ARE YOU OK? in turkey talk, nonobiggrinbiggrinbiggrin

That hunter waited till he could get 2 with one shot,,, good shootin,,

 I don't know where those 2 idiots are from,, I just thought that was funny as hell, must have a boring life,, to go around acting and talkin like a turkeyconfuse

 You'll get no argument there but they have the calling down pat - - - - that's NOT easy to do with your mouth and no artificial call - - - - I've tried to use one of those diaphram mouth calls but I sound like I'm chocking a chicken OOPS.  I use a box call that I've had for years to imulate toms and hens and I have a call on my shotgun barrel that has a string attached so you can "cluck" to a tom and still have the gun up ready to shoot.  However, I gave all my long guns to my 2 sons and the paraphanalia too.

 same here, Mego, however there was a time when I thought that opening day of deer season should be declared a National Holiday biggrin  Bo and I would put 10 deer in the freezer every year - - - - it's good healthy meat that I miss dearly cry  both my sons and their sons and my grandaughter are avid hunters and still love to hunt and I'm glad that they do but I can't kill anymore either - - - must be an age thing

I think I told my hunting experence somewhere here or there,

The only hunting trip I have ever had was when I was maybe 8-9 years old,, My Dad and his buddy always went deer hunting, but never ask me to go,, but this time my day did ask me to go,,for some odd reason,, ( maybe because my Mom quizzed him so much as to why he never took me along,,) even bought me a lisence,,and  a brand new pair of those buckle-up over shoes, we went way up in the mountains where they had usually gone,I guess, started setting up the camp, and after we had unloaded everything ,, I couldn't find but 1 of my new overshoes, and the snow was over a foot deep,, so my dad did what he could and that was wrap a feed sack around my foot and leg , so walking in that deep snow, the snow froze on the sack and made a giant snow ball I had to drag around, so that ain't gonna work,, so I spent most of the time gathering fire wood, cooking them something to eat, and cleaning up,,

I did get to shoot at a little deer that walked up too close to the camp, but missed, so my dad grabbed the gun I was holding and shot it,, then tagged it with MY tag, so they could have 3 deer,

so hunting never was a thing I could get interested in, freezin my azz off and killing a inocent animal that was hungry,, and trying to survive the cold just like I was,,

when we got home . and unloaded stuff, I was getting something from behind the seat of the truck,, and there was mt overshoe,, now how in the hell did it get there??? always wondered if it was put there on purpose?? never went hunting again,, Fishing ?Yeah I love to fish,, just don't do it much anymore,,,,

hmmmmm, sounds like someone droped the ball - - - er uh boots biggrin

I must say that ALL of my hunting experiences, including hunting squirrels in East Texas

with a tree'n dog were fantastic and enjoyable.  The memories are too many to count

and with us it was a father son thing that included some great "non-female" bonding.
