So, when is he going to release the info on this upcoming revelation I heard him mention at the end of one of his interviews? And, all the wrongs the state did to him.

Apparently in the 60's it was quite common and easy. I', from the Valley and I've heard several stories from old men about them as teenagers dropping each other off somewhere on the ranch and collecting deer. In 60's, not a busy highway. Not as many game wardens, and you could fit several deer in the trunk of an old Studebaker!

I enjoyed his story telling while listening to the Big Honker podcast, does not mean I agreed with his life style of poaching during that time, but I am not the one to judge anyone. He mentions that he admits his sins (stealing game) and has made piece with God. Sounds similar to what I was taught about mending fences with our savior for all types of sins committed.

Just a thought. Nice to speak with him to know his hunting methods, terrain judgement, habits, gear, weapon of choice, animal habit, and any other nuance. It would be like the feds trying to get into a serial killers mind....

I look at it as not rewarding him with profit off of poaching. By the way, he sent me my copy for free.

One killed animals. The other killed people. People are not animals no matter how many ďfur babyĒ references you hear now days. I donít care for poachers, but I care less for people who visit violent crime upon fellow citizens. Not even in the same ballpark for me.

I bought one and read the book. It was pretty interesting but I hunted south Texas in the 70s too when fences didn't mean much. I loaned my copy to my buddy who was going threw some cancer treatments and he said his wife lost it. Going to order a another one when book two comes out.

Seeing this thread reminds me of my Grandmother in her later years. We were talking about the great depression, they lived in Kingsville at that time.
They raised veggies, truck farmed for extra money pretty hard times.
She said the only meat they got was what my Grandpa could poach off the King ranch, she would drop him off in the dark, he would spend the night and she would pick him up the next in the dark.
She said exactly what we have all heard about people not coming out if caught, he always had her drop him off and pick up in different spots. Brought the boned out meat in tow sacks she sewed into a backpack.

I just saw this thread.I met that fellow a few years ago working on a ranch in Walnut Springs he’s a unique guy to say the least.I really kinda felt sorry for the man, he killed a lot of big deer and had some really exciting adventures but the man I met seemed like a empty hollow shell of a person.

I feel like thatís how most of those old outlaws are after they are rehabilitated. All there passion and energy was wrapped up in the crimes they committed. Nothing else really excites them.

I believe people use to poach the kings place as a middle finger to the operation. And obviously they had big deer still do but if I had no neighbors for thousands of acres I would too

Just listened to both episodes on the podcasts. Very interesting. This guy stayed in the wilderness for up to 27 days at a time, just him, his bow, a rifle and a ruck to kill monsters. Guy had some balls of steel if everything in his stories are true... He does make a decent point, back in the time period when it all occurred poaching was the equivalent to a speeding ticket now... Who on here speeds while driving, we all do. We know its against the law but we still do it so what makes this any different??

if you are a hunter it's a good read whether you agree or disagree. The guy has a story to tell. The grammar is pretty rough but the adventure can't be denied. I also caught the podcast which was good.

There are actually 2 episodes with him and they are both good.

But if you want a gut busting story listen to all of the episodes with Clay Reid " Coyote Man". They are freaking hilarious!!!!!

The penalty on the King, at one time, was potentially quite a bit higher than a speeding ticket....😉

Man, just imagine getting caught on the Manges back in ole' Clinton's glory years. I cannot imagine that ending well for the poacher.
