Sportsmen and their trophies!

Great opening weekend in Texas!

Had a great 4 days of hunting on our lease south of Seguin..

We are an MLD property and so our rifle season starts Oct 1 for does and bucks start November 1.  We arrived Wednesday evening and were all really excited to get out and hunt!

We all went out Thursday morning and saw activity but no shooters.

I decided Thursday to hunt a new area that had some long range potential with the blind out on the middle of a field tucked under a tree.  Took out the 6.5 Creedmoor and took a doe at 350 yards with Hornady 143 ELDX.

Running my Southern Precision Rifles 6.5 Creedmoor that I have ran out to 1k many times, I have absolute confidence in this rifle. Golf balls at 500 yards and clay pidgeons at 1k!

Great weekend of hunting

Been kind of a slow year with about 97 trillion acorns dropping and the deer just don’t need to move much to eat..  While I still haven’t nailed my “trophy” we still were able to put a doe in the cooler, bag a good cull buck which I donated the meat to Texas Hunters for the Hungry program.  Good to get another clean kill on a new rifle project with the 7mm08, gaining confidence for sure.

David got a nice doe with his trusty 6.8

Hurricane Relief Effort

Our family is from the Texas gulf coast..  It’s just been devestating watching all of this on TV and the internet.

We are organizing to help and could use your help to buy essential supplies.

We still have friends and family in the area and are in contact with them to make a list of what we need to take.

If you are in the Austin area and want to donate goods please call me at 512.289.6236, we will be leaving before dawn on Saturday.  We also have a go fund me account setup.

Thank you, God bless the great people of Texas.

Fishing the Middle Coast

The last couple days with this Dallas group had been a bit tough despite the winds. However, we were able to find stretches of trout green shorelines. Coming off the full moon our best shot at some solid trout was right around sun up both days. Finding the rafts of mullet proved to be the key in some of the success. If we walked a stretch of shoreline where only the occasional mullet would jump, our bites were few and far between, and not very aggressive. But, when we walked into rafts of mullet hiding in the grass, we found ourselves standing in the same spot for 15-20 minutes hooking up several times, and the bite was much more of a thump, rather than feeling like you were hung in grass.

Hunting hogs with Thermal imaging

Is there anything more fun that hog hunting at night with suppressed ARs and Thermal imaging?
Not that I can think of!

For this hunt I ran a Wilson Combat 6.8 with 100g Hornady GMX Boar Buster ammo. Silencer is a CRUX Nemesis 30. Thermal scope is a FLIR PS64 and video recording is being handled by a MDVR from Ultimate Night Vision.
