Feb in the TX panhandle

Feb in the TX panhandle

I hate winter but love the view sometimes. Where is LBC and his snow plow when you need them?
Hang tight guys, more to follow. The drive back to "work" was not the usual.

Turkeys

Started running when I stopped the truck. Lousy pic. (yep, greg can give me hell for the blurry pic)

Rio Grande Turkey in the snow.
Not real happy with me stopping to snap a pic of them.

I don't get excited too often but this is special! I've read and been told of these elk. They got lost during migration back in the 60's. A handfull wound up in the TX panhandle and have multiplied and spread out. Today was the day I saw some of them with my own eyes! No closed season because they are not native. I struggled for a moment but grabbed the camera instead of a gun!

great shot Vaq

Those elk look like dinner to me. SO you are saying that because the elk are alien to Texas, they are treated as "feral" and there is no limit or season?

Yes. A hunting license and landowner permission are all that is required, year 'round. Like hogs or rabbits. 600lb+ of choice elk meat! No tags.

Great pics. Were these all along the way? Or was this on different trips? Seeing all that would almost make driving through that white shit worth it.

Well, I'd be cursing my luck for the white hell, but thanking God for blessing me with such luck on the sightings. The elk would be mighty tempting.

Stegosaurues?

Dunno why I think I've seen that sucker... Too many road trips in too many states I guess..

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

We got some flurries today but not enough to do anything. If a vehicle was parked right and hadn't been driven in a while it kind of looked like Ice on top of their vehicle. Going to Guymon, OK this weekend and I WILL be shooting the new 1911 and my PT 709 snow or not.

Just as well. Weather calls for freezing till Monday. Hope your family members get well soon.
If you go to Guymon and don't mind some company let me know. I'll be here except for next weekend.
I'm over by Perryton, TX.

Will let you know.

In the summer I go to Gruver a lot and my family has a lot of land there. I always go plinking or hunting. Prarrie Dogs, rabbits, cans, or actual target practice in the summer time. Will definately let you know then.

No telling where I may be by summer. Look to finish up here first week of March, give or take.
Might be near though. We have a lot of work going on between Guymon and Dumas.
