muy grande déjà vu

Rural America offers an inviting country atmosphere that, in this day and age, folks enjoy every day. Removed from the hustle and bustle of busy city streets, small rural towns have a pace all their own. The small town of Devine, located just south of San Antonio, fits this description and is home to 16-year-old Khloe Naegelin. Aside from the normal everyday activities expected of teenagers, such as school, Khloe has excelled in a number of extracurricular activities. For starters, she is on the varsity volleyball team and made All-State last year. Much of her spare time, however, is dedicated to participation in youth livestock shows. She is heavily involved in her local 4-H club where she raises and shows steers, pigs, goats, and turkeys. Last year she claimed top honors,…

knives in the outdoors

Knives of all kinds have been a part of my life since childhood in Arkansas and East Texas. While living with my grandmother as a child, I remember using small paring knives to peel potatoes and other vegetables in the kitchen. The adults used large butcher knives to butcher and scrape hogs at hog-killing time. I don’t remember carrying a pocket knife until I was about 12 years old. It was probably a Case or Ka-Bar, and since that first knife, I’ve carried a Buck or Case pocket knife every day of my life. Historically, various types of knives have been a part of human culture since the beginning of time. Cavemen used crude stone knives and Native Americans used flint knives for many purposes, especially for skinning game. The Plains…

rigging your bass lure

There’s a vast difference between “fishing” and “catching.” That statement is especially true for bass anglers. Even if you’ve got the time and money to put in the days needed to truly get on a pattern, fishing (really searching) typically is done a whole lot more than hooking up. Most fishing reports are generic at best, especially those offered by state fisheries. The ones offered from fishing guides and those in the business putting paying clients on fish are even more nonspecific in nature, but that’s on purpose, with hopes of enticing someone to book a paying trip rather than doling out information that would help them on their own. Knowing what’s biting and how to make it happen — and more importantly on what lure — can be a finicky proposition.…

share your lunker, win prizes and help conserve big bass

Since 1986, the Texas Parks and Wildlife’s popular Toyota ShareLunker program has been partnering with anglers to promote and enhance bass fishing in Texas. Each season—Jan. 1 through Dec. 31—anglers will have new and exciting opportunities to partner with ShareLunker and be recognized for their achievement and contributions all year long. Anglers who reel in any largemouth bass at least 8 pounds or 24 inches can participate simply by entering their lunker catch information. All confirmed ShareLunker participants will receive a Catch Kit corresponding to their fish’s weight class. Each Catch Kit includes an achievement decal, merchandise and other giveaways. Plus, everyone who enters will be included in a grand prize drawing to win a $5,000 shopping spree and other prizes. And, anglers who donate their 13-pound or larger bass for…

got that big boy

The day started at home in San Antonio on Nov. 23, 2019, when the alarm went off. I hollered at my son, Tuff, “Wake up, Pop. It’s time to get up and go get that ‘Big Boy.’” I didn't hear a word from that 8-year-old boy sleeping in my bed. His mom would normally let him sleep with me when we were planning a trip to the lease so she and our daughter could get their beauty sleep upstairs without any interruptions. I hollered a second time and I heard, “I'm up Papa and getting dressed.” I said, “Good. Come in here and brush your teeth and I’ll lace up your snake boots because we need to be on the road by 4 a.m.” As always, we had the truck loaded…

moose for the table

High school teachers are always challenged to both teach and engage teenagers. Chugiak, Alaska, teacher Brian Mason decided to call on a cow moose for some help. Mason brought a moose he had shot to class last fall, for his high school freshman students to butcher. And in the process provided a whole new perspective on hands-on education. Mason, who was born and raised in Chugiak, has been teaching for 14 years at the same high school he attended. “The class we did this with is a biology class that is associated with a couple of other classes, called the World Discovery Seminar. Last year was the second year of teaching the biology class in conjunction with this program, which in the past had just been humanities,” Mason said. Anchorage Independent School…
