Thinking on Christ and the true meaning of Christmas

By Capt. Bill Watkins

Matthew: Chapter1 vs 18; Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her way privily.

But while he thought on these things, behold the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

And she shall bring forth a son and thou shalt call his name Jesus for he shall save his people from their sins.

Now all this was done, that it might fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

Spot and stalk on the Rocker B

From the high plateau we could look back down the limestone ranch road that we had just traveled a hundred feet below. It was a perfect vantage point to glass the mesquite covered valley that stretched away toward the dry river bed a mile or more away.

 

Scattered among the mesquite thickets were small half acre plots of low grass and other vegetation barely able to hang on in the rocky West Texas soil. As the deer moved through the mesquite they would become visible in these small openings. Right away we began spotting them; at first a couple of does, then a yearling with a doe, and then a nice big eight-point.

 

The longer we watched the more deer we saw. About eight hundred yards out we saw two tenpoint bucks, either of which were much larger than any buck that I had ever taken. To say that my buddy Mike Rachal and I were excited would be a gross understatement.

How to choose the right wild hog to shoot

By Capt. Bill Watkins

 

So, your deer feeder is attracting feral hogs instead of deer. This is sometimes a real problem. One that I have faced many times. What to do? Troy, the famous alligator hunter on the TV series, “Swamp People” would say, “Choot em” with his strong Cajun accent.

 

That is exactly what I do. When it comes right down to it pork is actually better than venison, at least in my humble opinion. All of us hunters get excited over a buck with a huge rack but the truth is that to have that monster rack takes -letting them live to get older
