The bottom line is if you have cuts on your body you should consider avoiding wade fishing in coastal water and eating raw oysters.  Some coastal fishermen are now using breathable waders while fishing (of course, they won’t help if you have cuts above your chest, including on your arms/hands).  See http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2015/06/health_officials_warn_of_flesh.html for more information.

Holy Smoke LLC will, for a price, load cremated human ash into shotgun shells and rifle and pistol cartridges.  For $850 they will load one pound of ash into 250 shotgun shells, mixing the ash into the cups that hold the shot.  The same amount of ash will fill the bullets of 100 standard caliber center-fire rifle rounds or 250 pistol rounds.  The put the ash in the tips of hollow point bullets and seal the cavity with wax.  Tim Godwin, a Montgomery, Alabama landscaping company owner and avid hunter, says he sees no problem with the practice.  “People have had their ashes sprinkled in rivers and the ocean, there have been ashes spread out of airplanes,” he said.  “If you love hunting or the outdoors, this really isn’t much different.”  For more information see www.myholysmoke.com.

Reflections of a New Deer Hunter

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Eric Liu’s story of his first deer hunt with Bret Mercer last November at Bret’s parents-in-law’s ranch near Comanche has been published in “The Truth About Guns” (a great news gathering site about all things gun).  The story is about God’s goodness, Christian fellowship, and the joys of hunting.  One commenter noted, as you said, that my hunting career goes all downhill from here on out.  See:

The award was presented last week at the annual TU meeting in Madison, WI to Mark Dillow, GRTU Chapter President.  The Golden Trout award signifies GRTU as the top Trout Unlimited chapter for this year, out of about 380 chapters nationwide.  Each year chapters are nominated and one chapter is selected by the Trout Unlimited national leadership. The criteria is based on the chapter’s performance in several areas including conservation, education, community service, and support of Trout Unlimited’s goals of protection, restoration, reconnection and sustaining our cold water fisheries.  The award recognizes the cumulative efforts of many leaders and volunteers over the past years to build this chapter into the largest chapter in the nation, with 5,000 members statewide.

Mark presently serves FCS as Assistant to the President and formerly served as Vice President.

ATF Update – action needed!

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The following is from the Texas Law Shield, LLP (davidd@texaslawshield.com).

Recently the White House issued a press release regarding new executive actions by Barack Obama. One item of the press release spoke about NFA Trusts; it spoke of a so-called “loophole” that the President wishes to close. Major media outlets are reporting the topic in such a way as to imply that the executive orders are already effective, and that NFA Trusts now require you to jump over bureaucratic hurdles such as Chief Law Enforcement Officer sign-off, finger printing, and background checks. But is this really the case? Read More→

They are located in the old Sportsman’s Warehouse building in Round Rock. at the SE corner of IH 35 and Toll Road 45 (between Best Buy and Target). Wayne Weilnau reports that they have a great selection of guns. They seemed to have a lot more of everything when compared to Academy, with the exception of only a slightly better selection of rods and reels. They also have a nicer layout. Randy and Ryan Rowley went there on 8/31/13. Randy noted that there prices were around 10 – 20% higher than Academy for items that he has the priced memoriezed. This included fishing lures, shotgun shells, duck decoys, etc. Randy and Ryan agreed that the only reason to go there is for things that Academy does not carry.
