Last week, I joined a group of friends, Keith Moore, Jodie Williams, James Anderson and Donny Parkman, to make our annual 600 mile trek to the Texas hill country to ring in the season; I was out of town for Louisiana’s opening day so the Texas adventure would be my first crack at trying to fool an old turkey gobbler.
