This season, we want to hear: What does hunting season mean to you? One of our very own here at Southern Recipe shares why he loves this time of year:

“This year marks the 51st anniversary I will be going deer hunting with my dad and the 28th year with my kids. We have been hunting on the same lease in south Texas for more than 30 years. As my mom says, we are “making memories”.

We hunt about 11,000 acres of some of the finest whitetail country in Texas. We also have over a dozen Asian and African species. We get to share lots of deer, food and campfire stories. My dream hunt? Cape Buffalo. I would love to hunt something so powerful! We have been hunting wild boars with knives for the last ten years or so and I would love to turn it up a notch.”

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 …

Rocky Road

I was on my way to Florida, helping my dad move. We were working our way through the mountains when it started pouring rain in a U-haul truck towing my dad’s 84′ Cavalier. The rain was so thick you could barely see the tail-lights of the person in front of us. My dad, of course, was sound asleep in the passenger seat. There was no room to stop on the winding mountain road so we had to keep going. About seven minutes in, we’re going downhill and I see the guy in front of me brake. I hit the brakes and nothing happens. Now we’re sliding down the road about to hit the guy in front of us, so I swerve to the side and start pumping the breaks. Half on the road, half off the road, we managed to stop about a car’s length passed the guy in front of us. Seconds later we got back on the road and continued on our way like it was no big deal. Oh, did I mention my dad slept through the whole thing?

For a Great Rooster Shoot in North Dakota Part

I did not know you could get the yips in Bird Hunting.

I really was looking forward to our annual rooster shoot in North Dakota. The short two drive hunt the previous afternoon promised glorious 70 degree days coupled with where’s Toto gale force winds. This part of the state has had no significant rain since June and we knew the dogs would need lots of water and breaks thru the day( as would I).

And I had developed the creeping feeling that I would never hit a bird going to my right. Now I have gotten the yips in putting ( I have buddies who for a month closed their eyes while I putted) but never wing shooting.
