Dudley Got A Steal Of A Deal On A Print Of The Texas Zephyr...


Got it for $5.95! With shipping total cost was $14.90. This beautiful Streamliner Passenger Train was in the movie HUD. Dudley never got to ride it but did see it when he was a kid in Wichita Falls. Ran from Denver CO to Fort Worth TX. It did continue on to that D town to the east. They would take the Diesel Locomotives off for servicing in Fort Worth. They then pulled the passenger cars to D town with an old Steam locomotive up until 1953! Passengers could transfer in Dallas and ride the Sam Houston Zephyr on to Houston. Dudley was a witness to the end of the Glory Days of Passenger Rail Service. Dudley was born one or two generations to late!

One Of Dudleys Favorite Authors Is Robert Ruark ...





Dudley Has these two books, both are great reads!




 

Dudley Is A Big Fan Of Robert Ruark ...


As Dudley gets older and loses his mobility a little more each day, he finds this to be true. All the memories Dudley has of fishing and hunting in Gods great outdoors mean more with each passing day!

A Monster Buck Frank And Jeff And Dudley Saw Back In 2009 ...



on a management hunt down near Mountain Home, TX. We were hunting on the WRS Ranch owned by the late great Walter Schreiner. The buck had a $7,500.00 price tag! Way above Dudleys Pay Grade. We went back the next year on a meat hunt and asked the Ranch Manager about Green Tag. He said he disappeared and he guessed that Walter may have let his young son kill the buck. His son probably did not pay $7,500.00 but he probably got to mow the yard for the next ten years!

When Dudley Is Gone From This World ...

He has made it clear that he wishes to be cremated. He has told Frank He wants half his ashes put up on a hill in East TX where Dudley had a new deer stand. He killed one of his most memorable bucks on opening morning in 1982 up on that hill. Afterwards Dudley and Sparky loaded the buck, an old narly 8 Point Neches River Bottom buck onto the bed of Sparky's Green Ford Pickup. We went to town and pulled up on the town square in front of the Barber Shop. Before we had hardly opened the doors, the Barber Shop emptied. The Barber and ten or more guys came out and surrounded the rear of the truck to see what Sparky had to show off. Sparky was known as one of the best deer hunters in the area and he had the run of 150 acres of prime East TX farmland. Everyone was congratulating Sparky on another big buck. Dudley did not say a word and Sparky then let the crowd know that Dudley had bagged the buck. 
Dudley spent many a day in that deer stand up on the hill on a powerline right of way. Saw many beautiful sunrises and sunsets from that special place.  Dudley wants the other half of of his ashes spread on the water/shoreline of Sam Rayburn Reservoir across and a little north of Shirley Creek Marina. When Dudley was a freshman in College he kept his twelve foot Terry Bass Boat in a slip there. Dudley wants half of his ashes placed where he caught the biggest Largemouth Bass of his life. Another great memory Dudley has of special times spent doing something he loved in God's Great Outdoors!

The driver is going to be Ok, he was scratched up and shaken no doubt. The buck did not make it. The Hot doe he was chasing is doing fine no doubt!

 

Frank And Jeff Came Back Home After This Mornings Hunt ...

They went down to Grapeland and picked up Jeff's deer meat at the processor. They are back at The Lodge this evening. They built a fire in the fire pit and grilled some Brats and the Heart from Jeff's buck. They are a good dinner, drank a beer and watched some college football. Now they have a big fire going and are hanging out talking about the great week of deer hunting they had in East TX!
