Because Life is Better at the Lake

Road Hunting is Not OK

by

Tom Behrens has over 50 years experience in fishing and hunting across the United States. Much of this time was spent in Oklahoma and Texas where he became very familiar with the outdoor opportunities in these states. You may contact him by email at: tbehrcomm@gmail.com




A Red River County game warden received a report about possible road hunting that had just occurred. According to a witness, the vehicle had an Oklahoma license plate.

After receiving information about where the road hunting had happened, the warden set up and waited at the intersection with the only routes back to Oklahoma.

A short time later, a vehicle matching the witnesses description approached the intersection and the warden conducted a traffic stop.

The passenger admitted to shooting feral hogs from the road on a private property and was taken to the Red River County Jail where the appropriate road hunting charges were filed. The rifle, equipped with night vision and an attached spotlight, was seized. Cases pending.

Lake Texoma Fishing Report from TPWD (May 27)

EXCELLENT. Water lightly stained; 74 degrees; 2.15’ high. Striped bass and white bass are excellent on live bait and topwater baits when fish are near the surface. Diving birds are marking feeding schools on the surface throughout the lake. Use sonar to mark schools along the river channel in deep water. Slabs, swimbaits, and live shad are producing fish. Largemouth bass are fair fishing plastic creatures, shaky worms, swimbaits, and crankbaits in 6-18’. Crappie are good on minnows and jigs by boathouses, marinas and brush piles 8-15’. Catfish are good on cut bait and minnows in 3-15’.
