The Importance of Teaching Your Sons Respect

  Being a parent is difficult. From the time we're thrust into the world of dirty diapers, late-night feedings, and pacifiers until the time our children get their first cars, go on their first dates, and leave home to go to college, parents have a huge responsibility. Not only do we have to make sure our children grow up healthy, safe, and well educated, but we also need to make sure that our children learn the importance of good manners and … [Read more...]

Check Your Vehicle Before A Long Trip

dad6

It is very important that you take the time to conduct a vehicle check before you take a road trip with your family.  It would be horrible to be stranded on the side of the road when you could've prevented that if you would have taken the time to inspect your vehicle before making your trip.

Last December I shot an East Texas Whitetail Buck and decided to mount him for our game room.  A couple weeks ago I received a call from Magnolia Taxidermist, letting us know that our Whitetail Buck mount was ready to pick up.  I have to say he did a great job and it looks really good in our game room. Granted it is not a giant White Tail mount, nothing like a South Texas Whitetail or a Whitetail shot in a high fence, but that is ok because he … [Read more...]

Doe With 2 Fawns In The Sub-Burbs

IMG_1710

We live in a well developed sub-burb outside a large city in Texas.  There is road construction in a wooded area about a quarter mile from from our house.  Over the last couple weeks I have seen a doe with a fawn in a nearby park and grazing along the side of a busy road in the middle of the day.  I have always wanted to setup a deer feeder right behind the house to try to draw the deer in the area in to watch of an evening, but they did not … [Read more...]
