The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, November 26th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 29 members and three visitors in attendance.
Lion Harold Hoerster was responsible for the program and introduced Texas Parks & Wildlife Game Warden, Randall Brown, who spoke about his life before, and after, becoming a game warden.
Randall said he always wanted to be a game warden; but, took other jobs after he graduated from college. In 1992, he applied to the game warden academy and was accepted. Following the academy, his first station was in Fort Davis, then Coleman, and now Mason.
Randall said so far this has been a pretty calm hunting season; but, the Thanksgiving holiday usually starts things to picking up. He said the Hunter's Education Law is probably the most common violation they file. Randall said most people will not take the time to take the course to become certified; but, now it can be taken on the internet very quickly and easily, so there should be no excuse for not having it.
There were several questions, and Randall answered all to the best of his ability.
The Hamburger Lunch has been rescheduled for Friday, December 6th, same time and location.
The club’s next meeting will be held next Tuesday, December 3rd, at noon at Willow Creek Cafe. The program will be the monthly business meeting.
