Youth hunt held in county
Participants and supporters of a youth deer hunt organized by Game Warden Jesse Garcia gather for a group photo. Two of the five participants shot doe.
On January 19, Game Warden Jesse Garcia of Wilson County coordinated a youth hunt on the Heritage Ranch, a property privately owned by Barry Roberts.
Participating in the hunt were five lucky students from La Vernia High School. Those who assisted in the hunt were Tony Kosub, Kevin Sells, Warden David Solis, and State Trooper Anthony Flores. Ranch Foreman Eric Seiler assisted by cooking hamburgers donated by Super S Foods in Stockdale.
The day of the hunt started by having the five lucky hunters take target practice. After the target shooting, Seiler prepared the hamburgers. Later that afternoon, it was off to the deer blinds, where two lucky hunters were able to harvest doe that afternoon.
“I would like to thank Martin Sanchez from Super S Foods for donating the hamburgers with all the trimmings,” Garcia said. “I appreciate and want to thank Mr. Barry Roberts, Eric Seiler, and Jeremy Rogers for giving the kids the opportunity and the enjoyment of being in the great outdoors.”
Everyone was said to have had a wonderful time watching the wildlife.
