Here is July and August Hunting Diary... we will see how it goes. I didn't get out as much as I wanted and I missed videoing a few of the times that I did get out. I'm really trying to get better at the editing part of this and I still have a ways to go. Watch to the end and please subscribe to my you-tube channel..

This is either part 2,3, or 4 ... just a little confused of the progression... any way here it is remember the pictures that are on the video are courtesy or Rimrock Publishing and if you want to see a lot more and the notes that go with them order your copy of "Cold Trail" great book to have around with some great pictures from one of the greatest lion hunters ever...

I had some work to do down in SW Texas so I took the long way and went through Sanderson. I've always liked this country and I know it's good lion country. I stopped at a gas station there to get a cup of coffee and asked the lady if she knew of any lion hunters that lived there. She said FM Galvan and pulled out a couple of pictures of lions he had killed. I told her one of these days I would like to meet him, she told me I better hurry because he's over 80 years old and has cancer and couldn't hardly get out of the house and would probably really enjoy talking to me.

She told me that he just lived right across the street so I took some time out and went over knocked on the door and sat down and visited with him for over an hour. I took pictures of his photo album, but his wife was upset because she said that someone had visited with him before and took the best pictures promising to get them copied and bring back the originals, but he never came back. I still took some pictures of the pictures that he had left in his photo album. I didn't take a camera in and video him but I did record some notes of what he said right after I left.

I did enjoy talking to him and I do believe he liked visiting with me also. Those old timers are getting few and far between and a person really should take the time to sit down and visit and LISTEN to them.  So I put a little video slide show together along with my recall of what he said. Sorry for the bad audio that is something I haven't worked out yet.  Music again by Dave Stamey "The Vaquero Song"

I wish before he is gone he could see this video.

It's hot out so I'm dragging roads to see what 's out there walking around. Without dragging the road I don't think I would of seen the lion track.. also dragging allows you to age tracks accurately
