This Is The Buck Frank And Jeff Are Going ...

to try and hang a tag on this year down at the farm.  This big 9 point came by Franks Deer Cam a couple of nights ago right before midnight. I hope he shows up during Bow or Rifle Season during daylight hours!

Dudley And Wife Went To The Coyote Drive In ...

tonight. Saw a Horror Movie called As Above So Below. Dudley likes a good spook movie but this was a bad movie. Have been wanting to see Fort Worths new Drive In since it opened. The view of Downtown Fort Worth was pretty cool and the food at the Snack Bar was good.

Printed Some Custom Stickers For My ...

Tonka Boat and put them on today. Bought a 1961 Tonka Sportsman Step Side Pickup and Camper recently that is in really good shape. Going to repaint the Truck red and the Camper white to look like Dudleys truck. Going to hang an Outboard Motor on the Lone Star fishing boat and strap it down to the top of the Camper. It is going to look like the trucks and boats the sportsmen used in my fathers and grandfathers generations. Dudley used the same registration number that he had on his little Terry Bass boat back in the day.










 

Frank Got To Go Fishing On A Private Lake ...

Sunday afternoon on a ranch near De Leon TX. He caught ten or so Bass 1 to 3 pounds on a medium weight spinning rod. He hooked a 6 or 7 lb Bass on a plastic worm that came up to the surface and was fighting with all it had. He said she started shaking her head back and forth and managed to throw the hook and get away! He said that Bass had a big mouth that you could put a coffee can inside. I bet it was fun while it lasted.

Dudley Has Been Wanting A Badger Hair Shaving Brush ...



for a long time. Found one on eBay that is made of silver tip Badger hair with a Mesquite handle with Turquoise inlays. It is a work of art and Dudley got it for less than $50.00! It was hand crafted by a retired engineer that had this to say about the brush...

Mesquite is one of the few species of trees that are able to grow in the arid southwest. One of the uses of mesquite wood is for the making southwestern styled furniture/kitchen cabinets with the extensive use of turquoise to fill in the naturally occurring cracks and voids in items such as coffee tables. This piece of mesquite does not have any cracks and so a nice pair of turquoise rings were added to complement the wood. I also included for extra interest, an area of turquoise on the handle base. The wood for this brush handle is from a tree harvested in Tucson, AZ. 

The turquoise was inlayed into the hand turned handle and sanded along with the wood to 1,200 grit and after applying multi layers of finish, again sanded to 12,000 grit to achieve that high gloss gallery quality end product.

The brush is finished with a durable, waterproof finish that will last a lifetime.

This brush is a nice size and has been made to fit the hand just right and measures 5 inches in height. The silvertip badger hair knot is 24mm and has extra stuffing for the perfect shave.

Itenerary And Menu For 2014 Wing Bandits Dove Hunt ...











 

Frank Is On The Way To A Ranch ...

near Colman TX for the 2014 Wing Bandits Dove Hunt. He is going to be hunting with his Great Grandfathers Browning Sweet 16.  The ranch they are hunting only allows dove hunting in the afternoon/evening. The ranch is supposed to have a lot of sunflowers which should bring in good numbers of dove. He is taking his Spinning rod and reel and some plastic worms and is going to fish for Largemouth Bass in the mornings. During the middle of the day he can hang out at camp and shoot Sporting Clays.

Frank Is Trying Out His New Bradley Smoker Today ...





He is smoking ten pounds of Snack Sticks made out of a mixture of Hamburger and Pork. He did not want to use our Axis or Whitetail venison until he perfects his recipe and figures out his timing a little better. When these are done he is going to cut them to length and put some in ziplock bags to eat in the near future and vacuum seal the rest for storage in the freezer.
