So grand … If you’re holding a fundraiser in the future, the surefire recipe for success would be to honor Judy and James Black and have Michele and Mitch Smith serve as the co-chairs of the event.

For those of you who haven’t heard, there has been a proposal brought forth that would effect Texas whitetail deer regulations. Scott Vaca of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in Austin verified the proposal in response to an e-mail that I sent to him.

Only the elite will be able to sell for meat the animals that were once the property of the Texas taxpayers and hunting license holders.
