Dudleys Aunt Was At The Lion Country Safari ...




near Grand Prarie in the 70's in her Station Wagon. She had a car full of Girl Scouts. They were stopped looking at the wildlife when a Baboon climbed up on the roof and took a dump on the glass roof panel.💩 One of the little girls looked up,  screamed and threw up. This started a chain reaction among the other Girl Scouts. It was a regular Barf-O-Rama!  My Aunt could not roll the windows down because of the Lions. It was an unforgettable trip to say the least!

 

Dudley Found An Original Brochure For 1946 Case VA Tractors ...






Dudley bought it on EBay and is looking forward to receiving it. Dudleys wife's Grandfather bought a brand new 1946 Case Vac Tractor in Jacksonville, TX. They used it for years to grow Tomatos down at the McLane Farm near Kickapoo Mountain in East TX. They would harvest the Tomatos and sell them in town at the Tomato Packing Business across from the Railroad Depot. The Tomatos would then be loaded onto rail cars and shipped to market. Dudley used it in 1981 to plow and disc the ground to plant Oats to improve the Deer Hunting. On opening morning of Deer Season, Dudley killed a nice 6 point with his rifle that came out to feed in the Oat Patch. Dudley was sitting in an elevated deer stand that at one time had been an Outhouse behind a Section House or Depot on the Southern Pacific/Texas & New Orleans Railroad. Still had the  toilet seat inside. Dudley was sitting on it when he shot that 6 Point Buck!

Pictures Of A South East Texas Squirrel Hunting Camp From Texas Monthly ...










Dudley has done a little squirrel hunting but for the most part was a Deer Hunter. Dudleys Grandfather Squirrel hunted in East TX back in the 30's and 40's and took Dudleys Dad when he was old enough. Also did a lot of Quail hunting back in the day. Dudleys Grandfather raised and trained his own bird dogs. 

 

John Lynch Lancaster, President Of The Texas & Pacific Railroad Back In The Day ...





Some great old photos of the Lancaster Yard in Fort Worth named in his honor. Can see some Steam Locomotives and the Round House and Turntable! The Age of Steam is long gone as is the Round House. Not sure about the Turn Table.

Dudley Watched A Lot Of College Football Yesterday ...




The Frogs beat the Mustangs. Dudley was watching the game on his big flatscreen tv and early in the first quarter, the picture went dark. It was a home game and ESPNU blacked it out. Dudley was not happy. He was checking the TV guide on the App for the local cable company and figured out he could watch the game for free on his iPhone. Dudley was happy again even though he was watching on a much smaller screen. Dudley took a screen shot of one of the TCU receivers jumping up way above the defenders and catching a TD pass in the end zone! The Frogs went on to win the Iron Skillet once again. A&M won earlier, Dudley enjoyed that game also. Dudley watched the Longhorns play the Trojans last night. USC won but it was a close game and UT looked pretty good. 


 

Dudley Would Like To Take That Flag Down ...


Shoot more Trophy Bucks and leave our shared history and priceless works of art alone!

 

Holland & Holland Double Barrelled Sidelock Side By Side Rifle ...


If Dudley could afford that and was able he would buy one and take it on Safari in Africa! Truly a work of art. 

 

A Public Service Message From Dudleys Diary ...


A hunter doesn't  want to misidentify his target!

 

Frank Got A Game Cam Pic Of A Nice Boar Hog ...






Frank thought it looked like a domesticated pig that got out of a pen. Dudley said it was just a light Colored wild hog that did favor Arnold Ziffle. Frank did not know who Arnold Ziffle was! Don't they show Green Acres Reruns any more???

Frank Went To A German Restaurant For Dinner Tonight ...

He ate some German Buffalo Sausage and French Fries. He drank a cold German Beer or two.


Dudley hopes his waitress looked like this!

 

Some Great Photos From Sanborn Canoe Company ...








On a canoe trip in Vermont. Some of Dudleys best memories are of paddling a square stern aluminum Grumman Canoe up in Arkansas and Northeastern Oklahoma on the Illinois River. Floating downstream fly fishing for Large and Small Mouth Bass, Bream, Catfish, Gar and Crappie. Those were the days!

 

Frank Went Dove Hunting This Afternoon ...


It was slow, only got two birds. He did get checked by the Game Warden. His License and stamp were in order!

 

Hugh The Hunter An Enjoyable Short Film About Grouse Hunting In The Scottish Highlands ...




Makes Dudley want to put on his tweed hunting coat, cap, pants and boots. Grab his Holland & Holland side by side double barrelled shotgun and go shoot some Prarie Chickens!

 

Frank And Jeff Went To The Farm In East TX To Check Their Deer Cams This Morning ...


Looks like they need to go back with their AR-15's and shoot some pigs 🐗
