Not much hunting...

I guess since we are in split seasons there just aren't as many people hunting and sending pictures or e-mails. I'll keep waiting or some things to come in, but till then it is going to be some slow posting... I hope it picks up pretty soon! Just send me whatever you get through the e-mail and I'll probably post it.

Safety First...Must Be Working!

Texas Hunting Accidents Drop To Record Low

AUSTIN – The number of Texas hunting accidents in 2011 declined to the lowest since statistical records began in 1966, according to a new report by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The number of people injured in hunting accidents in Texas fell from 25 in 2010 to 23 in 2011, and fatalities also declined from four to two during the same period.

WOW: "The state’s worst year on record for hunting accidents was 1968, when 105 accidents were reported, including 37 fatalities. In 1988, hunter education became mandatory in Texas for anyone born on or after Sept. 2, 1971."

Snakes Are Back!

Taken off of FB so can't trust it for sure, but it was supposedly caught a couple of days ago at Lake Whitney State Park.

If any of you guys do some snake catching send me some info on it... I have never done it, but I have to try everything at least once, it's habit!

Weekly Motivation!

Texas Hunting Forum

I was looking at a website called The Texas Hunting Forum  the other day and noticed they had a classifieds section!  They are selling everything from coolers and decoys to 50 caliber sniper rifles and cannons.  What I liked was that it was all by people here in Texas (hence, the "Texas" Hunting Forum).  There are new posts going up every 30 minutes of people trying to sell there hunting gear.  Hope it works out for you guys... try it out, but if your selling something locally, hit me up first!

Canvasback Mount

I've got a buddy of mine that does duck mounts and so far he has been doing an excellent job! This is my first duck to have mounted and it is almost finished.  He has only had it about 2-3 months and I should be getting it back here in the next couple of days (I'm hoping).  I'll put his information below if you ever need some bird work done!

Product Review

XLR 250 by Elusive Wildlife Technologies:
A friend of mine had one of these and we decided to try it out on an evening hog hunt... Amazing! We never had to use a spot light and we were about 250 yards away from the feeder. It lit up the field like it was a spotlight, but never disturbed the wildlife and still lit up the eyes!

Some of the green light attachments, like this one, are very expensive, but these are only $139.00! I know some other brands range all the way up to $300 or more.  I've used some of them and was never really a fan because you had to look through the scope to see the small ring of visibility that was shining from the light. 
This one will light up the field if you want it to and also gives you
great visibility through your scope!

It comes with a scope mount, a barrel mount, 2 batteries, battery charger (auto or home), and a push button on/off switch that can be mounted on your gun! Mine is Not For Sale...sorry!

Feel free to ask me any questions or leave a comment if you have one!
