Gov Greg Abbott to Declare Deer Season Opening Day a State Holiday

Opening Day of deer season is a treasured tradition throughout Texas. It is a day when families come together in the field to celebrate the hunt.  Uncles coach their nieces and nephews on trigger technique. Grandmothers bake everyone’s favorite pie. Grandpa spins tall tales of the black panther he saw down by the creek that evening.

Texas Outdoors Network is calling on Texas Governor Greg Abbott to declare the Friday preceding the first Saturday in November a state holiday. Continue reading Gov Greg Abbott to Declare Deer Season Opening Day a State Holiday

Lamco UTV Road Feeder Review

I have always been a big fan of All Seasons feeders but decided to purchase the Lamco Feeders UTV Road Feeder to run on the back of my Polaris Ranger.  I have seen Lamco Feeders in the field and knew they are a quality build.  The primary advantage of the Lamco is that it is purpose-built to mount on the back of a side-by-side.  The feeder fits into the receiver hitch of your Mule or Ranger as you would expect but the clever guys at Lamco designed a raised extension tube that extends behind the bed and below the tailgate.

10X brand camo clothing sets the bar extra high

I’ve always been the kind of guy who looks at camouflage clothing as not always necessary.  Growing up in Texas and as a rifle hunter I often find myself putting on a camo jacket or shirt and some bluejeans and call it good.  In a lot of instances that has worked well and nothing more was needed.  When hunting outside the stand however, it is a necessity that I have never spent real money on.  I’ve always been a guy that went to the big box store and bought the cheapest clothing only to have it be done in a single hard season.  For very cold weather, I have a tan set of coveralls that were made by Walls back in the late 90’s.  They have been my go to cold weather friends since I got them after high school.  When I discovered Walls acquired the 10X brand of camo clothing, I took a closer look.

Ruger American Predator with Boyds Gunstocks makes the perfect combination.

I have been using a silencer to hunt for the past 8 or so years.  I made the decision that I would never hunt without a can so long as I have one and it is legal to do so.  One of the things that a can does that is annoying, is it adds weight and length to a rifle, especially gas guns.  I have been searching for a lightweight bolt gun that did not break the bank and shoots well for some time now.  I was searching new rifles when I came across the Ruger American series and noticed that the Predator line comes pre-threaded.  I have access to some pretty spendy guns, but most of them are pretty heavy, and those that are not are not yet threaded for a can.  I decided to pick up a Ruger American Predator in 6.5 Creedmoor to match the build up I am doing on a Ruger Precision Rifle with the same chamber.
