What’s more Texas than a ‘Texas turnaround’? A look at the special ‘feel-good’ lanes

What’s more Texas than a ‘Texas turnaround’? A look at the special ‘feel-good’ lanes

Wired concludes, “like so much in Texas, they certainly feel good, even if nobody can quite explain why.”

If you’ve ever driven down a Texas highway, realized you were going the wrong way and used the left lane on the frontage road to turn around, you probably didn’t think twice about the luxuries this state has afforded you.

Sometime in the late 60's, my father was one of the youngest assistant general managers of the Palacio del Rio on the River Walk and was (clearly) not supposed to fraternize with guests but in my mother's case he made an exception. They were married a year later and six years later I was born. The River Walk is a magical place.

So very sad to see this

Where can we sign up for this program?

I know Brian personally. Good job!

Way to go warden

To the negative commenters... They harvest does and do testing on them every year. They allow youths to do this in order to teach/practice gun safety and teach younger generations about the cycle of hunting and to preserve this natural resource. The State does biological testing of soft tissue and brain cells for Illnesses and diseases. There are very many positive things to gain from these youth hunts, including positive encouragement and great character building. You, ma'am/sir, are not being a part of that POSITIVE ENCOURAGEMENT. Please don't take this as an attack toward you. I'm simply trying to make you aware. Thank You, Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife for everything you are doing for our youth and the environment!

Outstanding! Responsibility, conservation. Appreciation of nature, and reverence for life all worthy. And useful values. Great job! S.

That's what it's all about! Good job!

Awsome job. I have seen our wildlife officers taking young hunters out all the time. They do way more than most people know.

Great job, kids! Thank you for teaching and spending time with them, Brian

Great job nice kill during youth season❤️

Awesome harvest!

Coleman and McCulloch county game wardens work their butts off during a dove hunt Pat Poole’s annual PVA. Good guys.

Great job Brian!

Texas Game Warden Daniel Roraback was honored to have been a part of helping host a benefit hog hunt to raise money for Hayden Pruett, a local 8th grader, who was recently diagnosed with cancer. Hayden loves to hunt, and the community definitely came out to support him through an activity that he loves, with some significant funds being raised.

Hayden Pruett your Texas Game Wardens are behind you, keep up the fight!

Dogs can get heartworms from just one mosquito bite. Without treatment, heartworms can be fatal. Year-round heartworm prevention is essential if your pet lives in a climate that is beneficial for mosquitoes, like North Texas. During the entire month of January, heartworm tests are only $10 with the purchase of a full year of heartworm prevention in the same visit.

TCAP provides low cost heartworm testing and prevention during vaccine hours on a walk-in basis. To find a low cost clinic close to you, visit: www.texasforthem.org/hours-locations/vaccinations/

Always give your dog HW prevention because the cost of treatment is huge and its pretty hard on the dog as well.

How much is a full year worth of heartworm pills

Do y’all offer flea protection?

Love this.

God bless y'all!!

Day 4 of the Lower Rio Grande operations was a record breaker. A total of 49 illegal gill nets totaling 14,700 ft. were removed from the waters of Texas by the Texas Game Warden Maritime Tactical Operations Group.

These new seizures when added to the three previous days totals of seizures total over 5 miles of illegal gear pulled by game wardens from the waters of the Lower Rio Grande and Gulf of Mexico.

Elated to meet my heroes! Your work is greatly appreciated big league!

this is absolutely mind blowing. can the culprits be arrested for this when they are caught in the act?

Maybe sinking the boats that are laying the gill nets would send the right message?

In no way am I in defense of these nets, and I’m glad they are gone but,.... I thought the Mexican side could put up their nets but they just couldn’t tie to the American side? That is why they would tie to sticks a few feet short of the shore? Anyway so glad they are gone. The lower part of the Rio Grande River was just choked with endless nets.

Remember those days vividly when we would pull out that much illegal net out of Falcon Lake back in the late 80's and early 90's! It usually was Eliseo Padilla, Willie Gonzalez, Dennis Gazaway, Henry Leal, Jim Reece, Mando Sauceda and myself!

What a great 4 day seizure for the Texas Game Wardens. Thanks for you dedication and hard work.

Thanks for the great job you all are doing. keep it up , and stay safe.

Great work MTOG Wardens. Thank you for your dedicated work and service. May God bless you and keep you safe❤️

Good job guys n gals! Stay safe out there!

Be safe and thanks for all you do! Stay warm!!

Outstanding job Texas Game Warden!!! Keep up the great work, and stay safe out there!

Great work Texas. Alabama needs to ban all nets.

That is so awesome! Thanks for the work you guys do! Without it MY Texas would be lost. Once again, great job!

Great work! Do the Mexican authorities make any attempts to stop this? S.

Great job guys and hals. Keep it up and a huge thank you from my family and I. Please be safe

Fantastic job, I hope that the Wardens pull the net so tight that when they cut them that the net does not reach the middle of the river.

Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication on this.

Awesome job Texas Game Wardens !!! Thank You!

Outstanding Wardens, thank you for protecting Texas!

Thank you for your service, be safe out there

Great work wardens. Especially my cousin Carmen Perez Rickel. Stay safe and warm out there.

this is so wrong these people need to be held accountable !

I think you’re gonna need a bigger boat!

Keep up the good work and stay safe and warm!

Not one bit of respect for laws.
