I have been asking myself that question for over 50 years.

Contrary to popular belief, there has never been a time when snow geese were stupid. I started hunting them in 1969 and was bewildered by how so many of them would just fly over and never look at decoys....

It has been almost three months since we returned from goose hunting in Arkansas. It was, to say the least, a goose hunting adventure that was unequaled in my now 65 years.

I knew I was in for a wild ride when on opening day, November 16th, we had geese landing in...

Will the 2017-2018 goose season be a good season for Third Coast?

My answer is yes. The US Fish and Wildlife annual Waterfowl Status Report says that snow geese had a good to better than average hatch of juvenile birds. The main ingredient for a good goose season is her...

I went on my first Goose hunt in December 1969. We arrived in the field and there were about 300 torn sheets scattered over the field. I thought good lord! What is this?

We draped the rags over the rice stubble and then sat down and started BS-ing. If you notice in...

I have always liked to go fast. Its in my DNA plain and simple. The Texas Department of Transportation has been funded by this genetic fault.

My first encounter with my speed fetish was with my bicycle. Being poor I couldn't afford anything fancy like a ten speed, but I...
