After a week off for computer repair we are back and full of energy.
With meat at an all time high — even if you can find any — I will be leaving for a week-long safari to hunt anything that weighs over 1,000 pounds and was brought to Texas years ago, some to save from being wiped off the face of the earth forever.
Some of these animals have thrived in Texas, and now there are more living there than their native place. I will be hunting Watusi, Gemsbok, Aoudad, and wild longhorn.
This is one trip where I will not be hunting for just one thing; I am hunting to feed our family. I am somewhat concerned about the uptick in the cases of the virus, but people just won’t listen. I never go anywhere without a mask covering my face. I was told years ago, better be safe than sorry. I doubt I will be wearing a mask on the open range in Brackenville, Texas, but you can bet your bottom dollar I will wear one both going and coming.
Although my heart isn’t set on any one animal, I really would like to tie up with a nice wild longhorn, or Watusi. There is a lot of meat on those suckers, and good eating.
On August 15, here in the Commonwealth, our fall squirrel season will open. It is not but a month away, so get a child ready and let us get into the woods.
I will post some pictures of my safari and share them with Struttin’ Time readers. Meanwhile, please wear your mask and stay safe.
Catch you next week.
