summer hope

Well, spring has come and gone, and so has turkey season and fishing for crappie in the shallows. We are into a hot summer and I hear much of South Texas is dry as a bone. My places at Big Wells and Quihi are exceptionally dry. It’ll be hot and dry until September. Of course, it always rains just before or during dove season, knocking us out of a hunt or two. 2020 was a terrible year—one of the worst I’ve ever seen. COVID-19 affected only 2 or 3 percent of the people, but it killed a lot of elderly people because nobody knew what to do about it. When they did act, they did not protect the older folks, and instead, closed down the U.S. to a point that people…

imelda sharber

Imelda Sharber is a pioneer of our hunting heritage. Aside from her family, her life has been devoted to two things: God and the Muy Grande Deer Contest. The youngest of five daughters to Elda and Leonel “Muy” Garza, Imelda grew up in Freer and had a front row seat to the rise of Texas hunting and the growth of her father’s deer contest. The contest began in 1965 and its namesake originated from “Muy” himself when he proclaimed, “South Texas deer are as wide as the Rio Grande and as big as Texas. They are Muy Grande!” The small town of Freer and the Muy Grande Deer Contest have served as a hub for hunters in South Texas for over 50 years. “Hunting season is an exciting time. You never…

Extravaganzas Are Grrreat They’re back! Bigger and better than ever! You gotta see for yourself just how great the Hunters Extravaganzas are, especially because it’s been a long time since we’ve had the shows in Houston, Fort Worth and San Antonio. COVID-19 canned everything last year. If you’ve never attended any of the three Extravaganzas in the past, it’s time to mark your calendar to make it for a show this year. Known as “The Granddaddy of all Hunting Shows,” they’re the biggest hunting shows in the Southwest. It’s an adventure for the entire family, as there’s truly something for everyone. It may be dubbed a hunting show, but it has way more than just hunting stuff. These events are for hunters and nonhunting folks alike. Bring the kids. Gator Country will once…

seven mistakes landowners make in managing deer

Iam in my 48th year of studying and managing whitetails, working in every state and province where whitetails reside. Along the way, I had plenty of opportunities to work with hundreds of landowners. So, I pretty much have seen every mistake that can be made trying to produce better deer on private property. In this column, I will tell you the seven most common factors leading to failure. No goal Sitting down with a landowner, my first question is: “What is your goal?” They usually say something like, “We want to shoot bigger bucks!” That is not a goal. It’s an expectation! A goal is stated in such a way as to set bars for assessing success. A proper goal then would be, “We want to harvest four mature bucks a year…
