    Rifle season opens in the morning but we officially kicked it off last weekend at a buddies ranch with our annual father son hunt where my son made an excellent shot on his first deer. I can tell old dad is going to get a lot less trigger time this year. This is what it’s all about

    Congrats! Waiting for a return invite to hunt with a friend and his friend on a parcel of land between Bandera & Kerrville. Said he was too busy these last 2 weeks to get together and prep the property for this weekend.:E Shrug:

    Excellent! I love seeing those father and son/daughter hunts! Yep you’re definitely not going to get the trigger time, but its just as much if not more fun watching and helping a new hunter out IMO&E!

    oh and congratulations to the young hunter!

    Hunted texas last year out of childress with both my kids. Always a great time.
    Have gone a few times and the Landowner has become a friend but still gotta pay so won't be back this year. Lol
    Hoping to get my 10 yr old grandson down next year after he gets his hunter safety for a doe hunt.

    Thank you sir. It’s a real joy getting to
    Be her dad. The Rockin G is a special place. Anyone that has been can attest. I’m afraid there are no fishing photos. She caught at least 100 in 2 hours. There was no time for pics as we were baiting hooks or removing fish nonstop. We are either the greatest fishermen or the Rockin G has the dumbest fish.

    Yes sir it is! My granddaughter loved both of her hunts there!
    When my old dog and I hunted quail there, I couldn’t seem to shoot up to my normal, but I was just enjoying watching my old Dog have fun with all the birds!

    Yep! It is Disney World for the outdoorsman. My bird dog can’t sleep there, on the scent of the next covey. Game abounds..... whitetail, mule deer, turkey, dove, quail, pigs, etc.....
    Erik has a surgeons skill with a knife for Taxidermy or just to make sure you got every ounce of game meat you want to take home.

A nice fat spike. Saw some absolute monster hill country bucks but we just shoot does and culls on this highly managed ranch.

    Have a couple of nice bucks showing up on some other family properties we hunt so hope to get after them soon

    Great to see the kids hunting and being successful. Just getting my grandson started with the sport. Just hope he sticks with it when the hormones start. Personally, I'm headed to Wheeler county in December for whitetail. Hopefully a BIG one.

    439CDB52-5563-42A1-9E4E-341528DB1673.jpeg As I sit here in the stand this evening I realize I have done a pretty poor job of keeping this updated. Part of it due to getting busy and other commitments but also due to it being a little lackluster of a year as far as harvests were concerned. So most of my updates would have gone like this.


    Went out hunting this morning watched a toad of a buck and some youngsters, nothing we are looking for from a management perspective. That said it has been one of my most rewarding seasons ever getting to ride shotgun with my son as the trigger man for a lot of it. He has two does and the spike to his credit this year.

    I do have a Sambar hunt through parks and wildlife coming up so that may or may not prove note worthy

    We have two more doe tags to fill then we will focus on trying to let the air out of a few hogs and wetting a line.

    In the meantime I did finish up my sons euro of his spike and we have it proudly hanging in his room
