If You Don’t Like Texas

I wanted to share this video by Texas cowboy and rising YouTube celebrity, Chad Prather. I first learned of Chad after watching his video, Unapologetic Southern, which was his response to some “northern liberals” who opined that his southern accent made him sound uneducated. The Georgia native, now a Texas transplant, apparently struck a nerve and that video went viral. In his newest video

You can learn a lot from a person by taking them kayak fishing.

We’d just launched from below Lake Whitney a few weeks ago, when I looked downriver and saw that Doug Maile, my fishing companion for the day, was using his kayak to tow his young son, who was in a kayak of his own.

Your tax dollars at work…another installment of the Game Warden Field Notes.

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.

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

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
