23 Aug 2017 TDA Convention Is One For The Record Books

 2017 TDA Convention Is One For The Record Books

The annual convention is the hallmark event of the year for TDA and its membership. Each convention is carefully planned to include a balance of education, information, fun and fellowship, while offering access to exhibits offering high-quality products and services. Ours is the biggest deer show in the nation, and it is our utmost goal to make it an enjoyable and informative event for all deer enthusiasts.

This year’s event led off with the meeting of the National Cervid Congress on Thursday morning, bringing together representatives of the various associations across the nation to discuss issues affecting the deer industry. After that, a panel discussion on “Wildlife, Biology & Breeding” informed members about the latest trends and topics in the deer management world. After the kickoff lunch and Executive Director’s address, participants could enjoy the exhibits in the hall until the afternoon seminars begin. We were thrilled to have Mike Robinson, highly-regarded UK game chef, presenting deer butchering tips and cooking prep ideas. Also enjoyed by members was the MLDP seminar and the legal update. The first-ever legislative panel was hosted with dinner Thursday evening, featuring a candid discussion with Senator Craig Estes and Representatives Ernest Bailes, John Frullo, Larry Gonzales, Lance Gooden and Lyle Larson. We appreciate their participation and the update on the 85th Legislative Session. The evening closed with the auction benefitting the legal fund, which raised more than $55,000 to aide in our battle for the right to ownership for our deer.

Friday morning opened with the annual state-wide membership meeting, which saw record attendance. We were also pleased to offer a Family Hunter Safety Certification class sponsored by Texas Parks & Wildlife that day to benefit our TDA families! The “Make Deer Breeding Great Again” seminar was a tremendous success, providing a look at innovative industry tools to keep deer operations on the cutting-edge in technology and organization. The featured speaker at the luncheon was Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar, who presented on the growth in the Texas economy and industry predictions for the future. TDA was also proud to host a Continuing Education Veterinarian Seminar this year for all our member vets. Leading the way to assist veterinarians in understanding the complexities of practicing cervid medicine, TDA teamed up with the Texas Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA) Cervid Committee to bring representatives from the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Texas Pharmacy Board, TVMA, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This event was a tremendous success and one that we hope to repeat in the future.

Friday’s highlight was, of course, the Superior Genetics Deer Auction, which brought in a record amount–more than $820,000. Featuring some of the very best genetics in the nation, this event exceeded all expectations in scope and sales. The evening closed with the Hoffpauir Group/TDA Ultimate Sportsman’s Auction and Raffle, where more than $200,000 was raised!

Saturday began with exclusive exhibitor time followed by a solid slate of morning speakers, including Kerry Davis, Founder of Dark Angel Medical, and Texas Agricultural Commissioner Sid Miller. The TDA Select and Platinum Sale was the focal point of the day and did not disappoint. Raising a combined total of more than $1.3 million, this auction blew the top off last year’s earnings.

Before the Grand Auction began, TDA drew for the winner of its very first “cover model” buck contest! STRR Buck-n-Doe Ranch of Greenville took home the prize, and will be featured in the upcoming issue of TRACKS magazine! The other big winners of the evening were Billy Sage who won the Harley Davidson motorcycle and Drake & Ginny Heller who took home the prize in the Can-Am raffle! The Grand Auction brought in more than $120,000

The total raised in auctions over the weekend totaled more than $2.5 million! A very special thank you goes to our top buyers of the convention:

  • G2 Ranch (Don Gilchrist)
  • Blue Creek Whitetails (Billy Oehmig)
  • Cross Canyon Whitetails (Jason Millegan)
  • Cypress Ridge Whitetails (Pete Moore & Madison Michener)
  • Rancho El Recuerdo (Felizardo Elizondo)

The success of TDA and our annual convention depends on all of you—our guests, our members, our vendors, our sponsors, and our volunteers. You have made this association who we are today. Through difficult times, our TDA family has remained strong and unshaken! We are thousands of members strong, all across the great state of Texas and beyond, and we will continue to grow. It is time to be excited about the future of the deer industry in Texas again!

Thanks to all those who attended our 19th annual Convention, and for your continued support of your Texas Deer Association.

2017-18 Texas Hunting, Fishing Licenses on Sale Starting Tuesday, Aug. 15

2017-18 Texas Hunting, Fishing Licenses on Sale Starting Tuesday, Aug. 15

AUSTIN – The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) reminds hunters and anglers that the new 2017-2018 licenses go on sale Tuesday, Aug. 15. All current year Texas hunting and fishing licenses (except year-to-date fishing licenses) expire Aug. 31.

Every year, the department issues more than 2.4 million hunting and fishing licenses through the agency’s 28 field offices, more than 50 state parks, at over 1,700 retailers across the state and online at www.tpwd.texas.gov/buy . All revenue generated from hunting and fishing license fees pays for conservation efforts and recreational opportunities that help make Texas one of the best places in the country to hunt and fish. Fish stocking, wildlife management, habitat restoration, public hunting leases, river access permits and Texas Game Wardens are just some of the initiatives funded in part by license fees.

Texans can also enter Big Time Texas Hunts drawing when purchasing their license. Big Time Texas Hunts offers the chance to win any of nine exciting premium guided hunt packages, with all lodging and food included. Many also allow the winners to bring friends along to hunt. . There are packages to hunt bighorn sheep, mule deer, white-tailed deer, pronghorn, alligator, waterfowl, upland game birds, wild hog and exotics. Big Time Texas Hunts entries are available online for $9 each at www.tpwd.texas.gov/buyentry or for $10 each at license retailers or by phone at (800) 895-4248.

TPWD will also be awarding Lifetime Super Combo Licenses to three lucky winners through the Lifetime License Drawing. Winners will never need to buy another Texas hunting or fishing license. Participants can enter for $5 per entry at license retailers or online at www.tpwd.texas.gov/licensedraw . The first entry deadline for the three monthly drawings is Sept. 30 with the first winner drawn on October 2. Any entries not drawn will be automatically included in the next drawings on November 1 and December 1

Hunters and anglers can also support two worthwhile causes when they buy their hunting or fishing license by making voluntary donations of $1, $5, $10 or $20 to help support the “Feeding Texas’ Hunters for the Hungry” program or the Veterans Commission’s Veterans Assistance Fund.

Donations to the Hunters for the Hungry program provides hunters with a way to donate legally harvested deer to participating processors, and this processed meat goes to local food banks to feed Texas families in need. Last year, hunters and anglers generously donated $106,913 through the TPWD licensing system, which helped offset a percentage of the processing fees for food banks and made it possible for more Texas families in need to enjoy this quality protein source.

Donations to the Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans’ Assistance (FVA) program provide grants to veteran service organizations and nonprofit charitable institutions that assist veterans and their families at the community level throughout Texas. In its first year in 2017 license buyers generously contributed $193,903 in donations from Texas hunting and fishing license purchasers.

Hunters and anglers can get their new 2017-2018 hunting and fishing licenses and special drawing entries or Big Time Texas Hunts entries online at www.tpwd.texas.gov/buy, at license retailers or by phone at (800) 895-4248. The online transaction system is available 24/7. Call center hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is a required $5 administrative fee for each phone or online transaction, but multiple items can be purchased during a single transaction occasion for this $5 fee. All of these license sales outlets will offer the opportunity to make a donation to help veterans and/or families in need of food.

Hunting and fishing regulations for the new season can be found in the 2017-2018 Outdoor Annual, available in print form at license retailers, online at www.outdoorannual.com and in the free Outdoor Annual mobile app available for both Apple and Android devices and updated with regulations for the new season on Aug. 15.

To get more information on hunting and fishing throughout the year, hunters and anglers are invited to sign up for free email updates at www.tpwd.texas.gov/email or by texting TPWD HUNT or TPWD FISH and their email address to GOV311 (ex. TPWD HUNT myemail@emailaddress.com).

Female Hunter Apparently Takes Her Own Life Following Death Threats from Animal Rights Activists

Hate killed a female hunter who was found dead after apparently committing suicide, and reports say death threats by animal rights activists may have led to her fatal decision.

According to DailyMail, Melania Capitan, 27, had a prominent social media following for her outdoor/hunting lifestyle.

As we see so often with hunters on social media, Melania received thousands of death threats and hate messages, mostly from animal rights activists – and we all know how extreme they can be.

Even after her death, her Facebook page continued to be flurried with comments, apparently welcoming the news.

“She was so bitter that she had to pay her hate killing innocent animals, thank God she killed herself, the only good thing she did lately,” one of the grotesque comments read.

So we have to ask, when will this hate for hunters stop?

Man Pleads Guilty to Shooting, Killing Eagle with ATV

This is a rather maddening story.

A homeowner in Smithfield, Virginia by the name of Allen Thacker was irritated when a bald eagle kept eating fish from his pond and hunting small game on his property.

So, according to court records, the 62-year-old man attempted to scare away the bird with a warning shot using his Remington .22 caliber rifle. When the bird kept coming back, Thacker shot to kill.

Except a poor shot from Thacker left the bird badly wounded, but still alive. So what did Thacker do?

He hopped on his red Yamaha ATV and drove over the bald eagle, an official national symbol of the United States.

Of course, Thacker originally denied killing the bird, but a witness testified otherwise, saying they saw Thacker circle and run over the eagle at least three or four times, then drag the bird’s body into the woods.

He would eventually plead guilty to violating the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, and faces up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine. He will also have to turn over his rifle to the government and pay $960, or half the value of the ATV.

All the details can be found in the press release from the Department of Justice below:

NORFOLK, Va. – A Smithfield man pleaded guilty today to killing a bald eagle, first shooting and wounding the bird, then finally running over it with his all-terrain vehicle.

According to the statement of facts filed with the plea agreement, Allen H. Thacker, 62, shot the bald eagle because he was upset it had been hunting and taking fish from a pond located on his property. Court records indicate Thacker first tried to scare the bird away with a warning shot. When that did not work, Thacker shot the bird with a Remington .22 caliber rifle. According to a necropsy performed on the dead eagle, Thacker’s initial shot wounded the bird, but blunt force trauma to the bird’s skull proved fatal. Though Thacker initially denied it when interviewed by investigators, a witness reported having seen Thacker drive over the bird with his all-terrain vehicle. In Court records filed with today’s guilty plea, Thacker fully admitted to shooting the bird and running it over with the all-terrain vehicle.

Thacker pleaded guilty to unlawful taking of a bald eagle, and faces a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a $100,000 fine when sentenced on October 23. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, made the announcement after U.S. Magistrate Judge Douglas E. Miller accepted the plea. Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph L. Kosky is prosecuting the case.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service after receiving a referral from the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries Conservation Police.
