For those who still enjoy a paper publication (as I do), I have begun writing for Texas Outdoors Journal, a quality, glossy paper magazine published in Houston by owner Bill Olson. Bill is a fine gentleman and a fellow lover of classic Bertram sportfishing boats and the magazine is a regular winner in it’s category in the TOWA Excellence in Craft competition. My first article for TOJ was in April, dealing with hunting with suppressed firearms, and I have an article in the June issue about hog hunting with handguns. My articles should begin appearing there on a regular basis, if what Bill and I have been working on comes to pass. I am very proud to be associated with TOJ, and urge readers of this website to give it a look.


In another magazine subject, I will no longer be writing my monthly column for Southern Boating, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, after many years.

Also, my friend John Jefferson of Austin edits the Texas Parks & Wildlife Dept.’s Hunting and Fishing Annual – the one that comes with your hunting and fishing license to explain regulations and also provide a bit of entertainment. John asked me to contribute a piece on new speckled trout regulations down the coast.
