I don't even remember what county we were. I really messed up by not taking my on truck. He was an exterminator who was a friend of a friend. I got invited. They needed bird dogs. It was a disaster. The first night they went out headlighting. I stuck by the campfire.

There was a cook the next morning. It went down from there. It was all rocks and hills. We eventually found one covey. It was a two night stay. I wished that I had stayed at home.

Any invites that you wished you had not taken?

Only once.
The short story is a one armed drunk, that wanted to show everyone how fast he could draw his loaded pistol from his shoulder holster.

it's always a gamble to hunt with strangers or someone you never hunted with as far as I am concerned. I much prefer to hunt alone

I've had a few leases that simply did not work our. We killed 2 quail on my last lease. Anyone would have taken it by looing at it from the highway.

I had an Oxygen/Acetylene/welding vendor invite me and one of my managers down to Hebbronville to WT hunt for a weekend. "Bunkhouse" was a small portable office building with bunks in it. I got the top bunk that was 8" from the a/c window unit. Miserable night. Supper was at the owner (of the ranch and the vendor business)house. He acted like a big shot and we should be so thankful we were invited. The master bedroom had a huge blown up photo of a WT buck mounting a doe in it. Some people have weird tastes in bedroom "art". I think I saw 1 coyote and some javelina.

The last lease I was on had so many border patrol, game wardens, and other folks off of other ranches driving by within feet of my travel trailer that I thought I was camping on the median of IH10.
