Here’s another installment of Texas Parks & Wildlife Department’s Game Warden Field Notes, originally published last Friday (February 16, 2018). The Field Notes are periodically released by TPWD and compiled from recent law enforcement reports. We like to share these here on Lone Star Chronicles and are obliged to point out that the witty story headers are theirs, not ours.

It’s been six years now since we launched Lone Star Chronicles…what some might call an odd collection of long tales and short stories, mostly about life, liberty and the pursuit of fish in the vast Texas outdoors.

Photographing Dan

Here at Lone Star Chronicles, it’s pretty well established that I do the writing and Dan’s the photographer. But every now and then, usually when he’s not looking, I’ve been known to take a picture or two of Dan. I’m not nearly as good as he is, mind you, but

When I was younger, if anyone would have told me that at age 40 I would be kayak fishing in tournaments against some of the best anglers in the country, I would have said they were crazy.  Even the thought of kayak fishing was nowhere
