So after a couple of office Christmas parties in Houston I decided to take my wife on a short rendezvous to South Texas. This would be her first time to S. TX, first deer hunt, potentially first deer, etc, etc, etc. Well 45 minutes into our first morning, first hunt, this happens. Fast forward to that afternoon in the stand and I ask, well what do you think of this and she replies, This is pretty easy, I thought it would be harder. With a deer off of the checklist, we were also able to enjoy some of the other things this place has to offer.

I've been down south for some years now and I absolutely love the experience for first timers, especially kids. I don't know if I'll be able to live up to these expectations from here on out, but all I know is she's ready for the next trip.

Ahh, LaLa's in Mirando City, a real gem of a restaurant with 3-4 generations having worked the kitchen there. Love the small and large Mexican plates. Probably 50+ occasions there for me while hunting between Aguilares and San Ygnacio. Great hunting country with lots of deer and hogs. Whereabouts are you at?

I'm about 15 miles west of Mirando City in Webb Co off of 359. You're right, great food, they just don't stay open that late anymore, if you're not there before 7 they're usually shut down. Since you've been there before you may enjoy this read:

Great job by your wife, I am glad she had a good time. Next year I bet it won't be that easy for her.

Thanks for sharing.

Congrats to your wife, excellent deer.
The ladies and kids seem to make hunting and fishing look easy. I swore I would never take them fishing again, they have the dangest luck. But I keep taking them hunting and fishing again, only to be punished again and again, and love every minute of it.

Too many good family memories there Southeast. Dad introduced me to LaLa's about 35 years ago and I never stopped going. Many times having a nice buck/s in the back of the truck and sharing hunting stories with other hunters. Love their puffy tacos and homemade puffy cut chips and the homemade green salsa washed down with an ice cold Big Red out of their self serve cooler. Thanks for sharing and bringing back great memories!
