From Matt's blog:

Last week I went on a hunt with my father-in-law, Jim, and Laserlyte (http://www.laserlyte.com/random2.html). We went down to Paul Calhoun's ranch down in Texas, close to Palestine. Got to meet up with some old friends (Dave, Aaron and Larry) and do some hunting down in the good ol' Lone Star State. To be honest, I love most everything about Texas and if I had to pick my family up and move, I would head down there.

I have hunted with Laserlyte before and it's always a good time. Last time we used Glock 10mm, this time we used a Bowtech crossbow. This episode will once again be on Keith Warren's outdoor show, The High Road (http://www.outdoorchannel.com/Shows/TheHighRoad.aspx). When I find out when that will air, I'll let you all know. Here are a few pictures from our hunt:


On the forums, we've been talking about a video of a 72-year old woman getting hit with a taser. I'm sure you've heard about it on the news and, if you haven't seen the video yet, please watch it and then give me your opinion on what you just watched. You can read the story and find a link to the video HERE (http://www.matt-hughes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1933). There's been quite a debate on the forums on whether the police officer was justified or just acting out of anger.

Here's another funny thing I found on the forum, it actually looks like President Obama shot footage for this; but it could just be clever editing. The cartoon has a little bit of truth to it and it's quite funny:

Got quite a few HIT Squad fighters fighting this weekend, so all the coaches will be busy. Talk to you all early next week. -matt

"Laserlyte: it will even get the one in the brick house"

Sound like a great trip Matt.

We'll be rooting on the guys this weekend!

Palestine/Westwood were football rivals of my old high school! :laugh: You were all over my old stomping grounds. Good thing you don't know my maiden name, they might still remember me. :ashamed: Years ago I used to be the DJ for KYCX out of Mexia. Had a dedication show and everything.....:happydancing:

Illinois / Texas / Virginia ..... my heart is divided thrice ...

Where I was born and most of my family is at / Where I was raised and my brother is at / My current home ... my blue ridge mountains.

Glad you got some good rest and fun after all those weeks of training. Love that knife BTW. Nice ... very nice.

My heart is in Texas!

Visited a store yesterday and checked out the guns and bows, looked a lot of fun!

Going to a gun range tomorrow but so far i love the Texas mentality and faith here.
