I attended the meeting in Hemphill and there was a Lacy dog owner that spoke but I can't for the life of me remember his name. He lives in Harrison County and is a pretty good sized guy. He spoke in favor of lifting the ban as written and I believe he also said he would favor it lifted in all counties. Most of the comments were in favor as written. Some didn't care what happened in other counties but did not want the ban lifted in Sabine County. Sabine County has a very active Landowners and Leaseholders Assoc and they were against lifting the ban in Sabine County. That is going to be a tough nut to crack w/o lots of education....

I had a chance to talked to several of the TPW guys as I had to facilitate the setup in Woodville and attended the meeting in Hemphill. They told me the Hemphill meeting was the highest attended and Woodville had hardly any attend. Comments seemed to be about the same in Woodville and Lufkin some for some against but pretty much a split. One guy from San Augustine County was "offended" that legal folks had to suffer for the actions of the outlaws and did not believe that there was that many calls about dog hunters. The Capt of the area warden's is going to bring him stats. I know it goes on in Sabine County and everyone knows who is doing it but can't/won't do anything about it.

As stated above the follow one whitetail presentations were pretty interesting if you are a deer hunter and are curious about the results of the 13 in rule and how they came by using they method of determining which bucks were legal. The meeting lasted about 2.5 hours.

They emphasized either go to the website (listed above) or attend the Commissioner's meeting later this month if you would like to comment.

Thanks for everyone's hard work.

The lacy owner you met might have been our good friend Marty. Bagley is a lacy cross and a heck of a tracking dog!

Thank you for attending. I believe the tracker community was well represented!

LOL :))

That "good sized guy" would be our very good friend Marty Thomas,

also known as the owner of the famous tracking dog, Bagley
he also owns a fine bowhunting ranch on the shores of Lake of the Pines,
and under his alias "Buff" he has been known to kill an elephant with a recurve.

Great guy.....

thanks for going and showing your support! :ymapplause:

Yes that was his name..I am real bad with names...I spent 20 years in the Navy and there was no need to remember names, they were on everyone's shirt.

We had a short conversation about Lacys but he had a 3 hour drive and was wanting to get back. He mentioned in his comments that he had a certified dog...

ELEPHANT WITH A RECURVE??? YOU HAVE GOT TO BE S**TING ME!!??

Yup! That's him...man what an adventure!! And what a kill! And all this time I thought Chuck Adam's Kodiak from his Grand Slam was impressive. While I would not want to piss off a bear as big as that, an elephant with a recurve!!!! That's shooting!!!

Thanks for the story

Werner
