I got me a nice tree to sit under about 75 yards from water along side of a sunflower field out by Honey Grove.

Good luck with your hunt everyone

That's just the saddest thing I've ever seen, you obviously need a hunting buddy. I humbly nominate myself.

Bell pepper? Those are Texas dove, they deserve a good jalapeno!

I had a good hunt out near Tuscola. Shot a limit in the afternoon on Tuesday, and shot a limit in the morning on Wednesday. My drive time from the metroplex was longer than the time I spent in the field!

I'll be taking my boy out this weekend to a new lease we got on... Hope it isn't shot out and he gets some opportunities.

I was there and ate 4 of those breasts. It was jalapeños, because we were joking about it. I think Andy just made a typo.
