First let me qualify: I was born and raised in Texas until I was 31. I moved to Cody, Wyoming for 6 years and then to Montana for 19 years. Couldn't wait until I could get back down to Texas where I always considered home. Texas pride is everywhere, just look at the TX flags flying everywhere. We're taught by our parents/grandparents that all other states rotate around Texas and I still believe that. That said: Some Texans can be pretty obnoxious when it comes to hunting and their "know it all attitudes". (I'm guilty too at times so stay with me here.) I guided for big game out of Cody, WY for 3 years and was in the mountains hunting horseback for about 4 months every year. One particular pair of Texas hunters were bear hunting with us. They immediately began telling me how the baits were set wrong, wrong meat in them, wrong set-up in the barrel, wrong location, yada yada yada. I asked them where they had bear hunted before and both said they had "read about it" in different hunting magazines. This is the type of attitude that gives Texans a bad name in many of these hunting rich states. A PH in Zimbabwe even made a comment to us that the Texas hunters were certainly a different lot of people. He had been told by Texans what he was doing wrong in his African hunting and was told "this isn't how we do it back home". I realize that this will not change and this is only an observation, not an indictment on the Texas hunter. Sometimes we make better impressions if we listen more and talk a little less; some of these places would be more tolerant of us.

Its not just hunters from Texas. The majority of Texans are obnoxious. Me included.

Oh... and welcome back to the land of "I'm better than you" wink

There isn't much "real" hunting in Texas in my opinion, where its man against animal and environment.

I still disagree with you on 2.5lbs cheers

I'm pretty quiet when I get out of Texas-mainly because I don't know jack compared to who I am trusting my hunt to when guided. If I am unguided I just do my thing and my buddies do theirs-we all will give our thoughts if requested but not until...

If you ever do a sheep hunt in the lower 48 I can recommend a good guide that loves Texans, but he will mess with you about your accent.

Of course there are know it all hunters that come from Texas. Being a Texan has a lore about it that people don't forget and they know from other parts of the world. Those Texans were just more memorable than the people from the rest of the US.

I've had a few but absolutely the most obnoxious hunter (former hunter) was from Deep East Texas... somewhere close to Monroe.

Not me I just pull in and honk a few times...just so they know the big deal is in town smile

Or I jump out of the truck and yell...Game Warden every one freeze.

Most the outfitters I hunt with usually know me pretty well and the new ones well they'll get to know me pretty quick.

Johnny loco when you say man vs animal is a wt, mulie, or elk in other states more dangerous to hunt. Just curious about your statement NO REAL HUNTING in texas? I mean last time I checked with the exception of grizzly, kodiak, polar bear most animals in North America are not that dangerous to hunt wherever you hunt. As for Africa other than the dangerous game the plains game really aren't anymore dangerous as there bretheren relocated and raised here in texas from what a ph I met told me when asking what the differences are between shooting plains game exotics there vs here. Yes I'd agree on environmental factors hunting in others can be challenging especially cold, but I've guided many out of state guys in the dog days of summer and they are dying so I think it's a short sided statement to knock Texas.

X2. I don't go into someone elses home and pretend to know where they keep their flour.

Whenever I hunt something/somewhere I don't have experiance with, I take a guide. makes it alot easier to be successful and gives you knowledge to boot!


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.
