Like Pork Rinds … Dove Hunting is a Family Affair

This year marks the 50th year that my dad and I have gone dove hunting. And believe me when I say it was just as special this year … as ever.

Southern Recipe Pork Rinds And Dove Hunting

There is no way to explain just how important the opening day of dove hunting season is in Texas – and the opening day of our 50th year hunting together was no exception. For me, it’s about familymore so than the actual sport of hunting.

Nostalgia hits me every time I see the sun come up over the trees. And the frost … The frost on that Texas grass really is something of an oxymoron, as it happens on just a handful of days throughout the year. At 80 years old, my dad loves reminiscing and bonding with Sarah, my youngest daughter. There aren’t too many opportunities like that anymore so I really take advantage of times like those.

It makes me feel lucky to a part of a close-knit Texan family — with such amazing girls that care so deeply about each other and our whole family. How do pork rinds fit into all of this? We are Texas. Rudolph’s and Southern Recipe are at every hunting season, table, cookout and get together. Now it’s your turn. Tell us how you spend time with your pork rind lovin’ family …
