Guy who changes my oil has a lease out in East Texas. He's always asking about my latest hunting adventure. I ask about his.

Today he pulled out his phone and showed me pics from his game camera. He showed me a really strange picture of what was apparently a "squirrel arm" reaching away from the camera. His reply, "No sir! Look carefully! The local game warden said its a primate species."

Alright folks be careful out there. Monkey might just sneak up on you! Do monkeys like corn or protein?!

Bwhahahhaha....

Your right, and they didn't get all of them back.

I was on a lease between Fowlerton and Los Angeles (east of Cotulla) and there were snow monkeys around that had escaped from somwhere north of us--didn't have game cams then, but the store in Fowlerton had a picture of a bunch of them sitting on the old trestle just SW of the store, along Hwy 97. I was driving towards Los Angeles one afternoon and something crossed the road ahead of me--too far to be positive, but it wasn't a 'yote or a bobcat, deer or hog. Sure looked like a "minkey" as Tim called them.

Can you imagine climbing up the ladder to the blind, opening the door, and having one of them sitting in your chair?

Had a lease in Dillie and my hunting buddy went to his stand and there was a snow monkey in his seat on hid tirpod.

I heard a circus train crashed in that area and there's all kinds of creatures running around in the woods.

Be careful!

Here you go, this is what the ones that got loose in Magnolia look like. Last report was 7 returned, 1 shot for biting a Game Warden, and 2 still in the wild.

I don't think they like corn or protein but love pea gravel.

I heard there are snow monkeys in some areas, but I have also heard about black panthers in E Tx so IDK.

A friend saw some hunting around Cotulla a few years ago. He told the landowner about it, who was not surprised. There was one loose in the Mission area a few months ago, made the local news. It was just a single escapee from a guy who raises them. He was caught by local animal control. They used something like cinnamon rolls and Mexican sweetbreads to trap him.

I don't know if that's funnier than the fake Nolan Ryan talking about them or not. Both are hilarious! :D

Folks, my point was this was def. a squirrel arm. Not any primate of any sort what-so-ever. This story just made me laugh!
