    Favorite part of hunting is settling down and dozing off a few mins as dawn breaks and seeing everything come out of hiding!

    Thanks. Yeah, I'm really a fairly cautious person, but I'm not always consistent about it. Much rather go doing something I love outdoors rather than being in a hospital room or something.

    On the way home I pulled off the highway after crossing the bridge and hearing some very tempting water call my name. This was under the bridge you can't tell me you would resist that green clear 57F water! There was a nice stretch couple hundred yards on either side of the bridge that was deep up to about 15 feet and although somewhat barren very pretty. I took a lot of GoPro footage the must have came out pretty lousy. It quickly got shallow and turned into rapids upstream I wish I had more time to explore. Went through my first border patrol checkpoint on the way home. I didn't flex my rights and simply said "yes sir" and was on my way.

    It is a really big lake with a lot of wind, and I had to rethink my original plan of paddling up river into one of the tributaries and then camping Backcountry for a few days away from anybody visiting the park. I would have made really good time going upstream because it was downwind but I would have had a very difficult time making it out without having to stop and spend the night somewhere probably two days of paddling into 15-20mph wind to get back to my truck. The steep rocky banks limit places to camp as well so that would have been tricky. Fortunately it's a ghost town this time of year and so there was one old guy in a camper way across on the opposite side of the camp area and he was quiet and I never saw him other than the first day so I just stayed at a campsite next to my truck and did day paddling within three to four miles of my campsite. Despite the hassle of dealing with a big kayak I really appreciated the stability and storage on this trip. It's 15'4" in length. Most of the trip was very overcast and so all my photos are very depressing gray. Was hard to get any decent color in them. More cactus because.. So many interesting rocks and formations. I've been fascinated with my past couple trips two more arid parts of the country... Stuff last so much longer. Whether it's tracks, scat, or discarded trash, stuff in the desert is so well preserved. There were a ton of goats free range around(although I'm not super-confident in differentiating between rabbit and goat droppings) and it was funny to see how bits and pieces got caught in the rocks as a tumble down the hillside and would have landed in the water if not for all the crevices.

    So Monday I loaded up the danger ranger with kayak and dive gear, and drove west to the Amistad reservoir, which was formed by a dam on the Rio Grande river. A couple smaller rivers also flow into it. Setup camp to this view.

    Here's where it got really fun. What a rush! Healthy turkey population in the area as well

    Climbed a few hours to get up here. You really wonder on some rocks how one right next to another ended up in such a different shape. There are also a lot of free-range longhorns in the area

    "hunted" buffalo. Boy was it fun.. what a rush to be so close to such a huge animal. We were careful, though it turns out our first experience we pushed a little too much. The raised tail is a sign given before a buffalo will charge you. Got much closer the following day, but positioned much better and downwind of a stiff breeze. Cool fungus of sorts After my New Mexico trip I had somebody asked me "why so many pictures of cactus?" So now I go out of my way to take pictures of any cactus I see. They are cool and still a novelty to a northerner like myself. None of the lakes here are natural, all army corps of engineers.

    Thanks! I have fallen behind, have photos from a few more trips to upload. Looks like my last post failed on the upload. More soon.

    Went for a paddle north of the city, December 1st. Little chilly but still saw one gator and some toydahls.

    Like snakes?

    Haha. A LOT more than snakes do. Not that it really has anything to do with liking or disliking them. Bambi kills people too.. no need to hate. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2015/06/16/chart-the-animals-that-are-most-likely-to-kill-you-this-summer/?utm_term=.c3350b3ee54a

    Like snakes?

    But yes, I do have a fancy for them. All herps really. Since I was about 15 years old it has become a passion. I'll dig up some random snakes pics from over the years. I'm doing less captive, and a lot more field herping these days.

    Like snakes?

    This is somewhat annoying. People do this all the time.. "Oh you like snakes? Hey that reminds me, here look at this pic of this snake my uncle killed last summer". Then I say "oh that's nice. You said you were a dog lover huh? Check out this road killed puppy I stopped to take a pic of last week".
