Your tax dollars at work…another installment of the Game Warden Field Notes. The reports come to us courtesy of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and are compiled from recent law enforcement reports. This post was released by TPWD on September 16, 2015, and as I like to remind readers, the catchy headers are theirs, not mine…

No Rest for the Weary

This particular photo caught

The Healthy Nature of Nature

Nature Rx-2036Science has proven that spending time outdoors is good for us. You won’t get any argument from Nature Rx, an organization that is taking that message to the next level by creating an advertising campaign about the benefits of spending time outdoors. As they point out on their website,

TPWD just released a new set of Game Warden Field Notes which are compiled from recent TPWD law enforcement reports. The notes are published periodically and they do a fine job of educating, and sometimes even entertaining us, while reminding us that there are idiots out there. By the way, the

When Pigs Swim

LSC Hogs of lewisvilleSometimes when you’re fishing, strange things happen. The latest example comes to us from a north Texas kayak angler named Henry Shipes who was fishing Lake Lewisville just north of Dallas a few days ago. He heard a commotion coming from the flooded brush on the bank behind him, and when Shipes turned to look, a huge herd

Thunderstruck

Prepare to be thunderstruck by a unique version of the AC/DC rock anthem, performed by a band from Finland of all places, but they’re not what you’re expecting. First, you have to get past the fact that they’re a Finnish band, dressed as hillbillies, covering a song about a drive through Texas, made famous by a band from

Lone Star Chronicles – Best of 2014

Pecos River Journal - The Graveyard 11Three years ago, my son Dan and I launched Lone Star Chronicles to document the outdoor adventures of our fellow Texans and maybe even one or two of ours. It’s since become our tradition on the anniversary of the launch to post the top 10 stories from the previous year (based on number

Cowboy Hats and Copperheads

Cowboy Hats and Copperheads 4

When you live out in the country, you look at things differently than city slickers. I don’t live in the country yet, but spend enough time out there to know I’ve started thinking like a country boy. Take cowboy hats. I remember moving here to Texas, many years ago, and thinking to myself that I would never wear a

A Whitetail Christmas

LSC Whitetail Christmas3

There were reports of snow in Texas last night, and a fresh powdering just before Christmas always brings with it tales of possibility and wonder. It’s in that vein that we share this Youtube video that someone sent sent me. It’s a Christmas story of sorts, with a few snowbound deer in need of someone to follow. Yes, I know there aren’t reindeer in Texas, and I

Texas Mike and the Alien Lizards

OPT Brazos Bass 4His name is Mike Whitacre, but I call him Texas Mike, which would strike you as odd if you ever saw him in person. He stands all of 5’6” and has a soft-spoken, southern drawl, but don’t let that fool you. He fishes from his kayak with Texas size tenacity and routinely catches enormous bass as evidenced by the many videos he’s posted on his YouTube channel where he and his friends are always seen
