EXPO: Deer or Dillo?

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program

Several years ago, we met, then, 15-year-old Mike Landin at Texas Parks and Wildlife Expo. The Austin resident told us about a time he went deer hunting with his Dad, and they came upon a huge buck.

And this deer was bigger than I’d ever seen in my life, and I was like 14 and I was shaking real bad, and I…I ended up missing him, but we thought I got him. So we sat in the blind for about a half an hour and I was like, okay — c’mon Dad, c’mon Dad, we’ve gotta get him. So we walked around for about two hours just looking for this deer. I heard this like sound, and it was like this sound of something scraping. And I was like, I found the deer, I swear this is it! And I hopped over this little cliff hanger thing and I was like I found it! I found it! And ran over and it was an armadillo. I got all excited over this armadillo there again. And we found out I missed this huge buck! And that’s my hunting story.

Mike’s Aunt Kay who was with him, tipped us off that Mike is all Texan, but likes to tell stories using phony accents… and we’re glad he does.

Join us at Expo this weekend in Austin at Texas Parks and Wildlife Headquarters…and get in touch with your inner outdoor enthusiast…and it’s free.

That’s our show …we receive support from the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program… For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
