The catfish are biting on the Sabine so that’s pretty where you’ll find Dad (Royce Lynn). He’ll be there just about every day and will cycle through friends fishing with him as they are available to take off work. Don and Donna were the lucky fishermen today. (* Click on Pictures to see full size)

Of course with catching this many fish comes a bit of work in dressing them. Granted, when you catch a lot of fish consistently the process of dressing them can become quick and efficient. I had just stopped by on the way from a trip to Shreveport and was dressed half-way nice… that was my excuse to just snap a few quick pictures.

Another winter means the leaves fall and it’s time to hunt squirrels with dogs. It’s a family and East Texas tradition. Here are a few pictures from the 2015 season. I’ll update this post as I receive and process pictures. (* Click on Pictures to view Full Size)

One problem with inviting a young man to go squirrel hunting with you is he shoots all the squirrels. One advantage is fewer squirrels get away.

After hunting there is always dominoes (42 to be exact). Here is Shelby holds his sleeping puppy, Sweet-T.
Baby Red Tailed Hawk Sitting on Top of Pen
In May of 2012 Dad (Royce Lynn) came across a baby red tail hawk. If I remember correctly it was in the middle of a dirt road. He pulled over, brought it home and fed it until it matured.
Eventually it was old enough and healthy enough that it just flew off. We say it around the house a few days after that, but eventually it moved on.
There’s no telling how many squirrels it has killed in the years to come.
