Bill Seeks Sales Tax Holiday for Guns, Ammo
from the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal
Every summer, just before kids go back to school, millions of Texas families take advantage of a three-day sales tax holiday to buy clothes and shoes for the youngsters. State Sen.

Coryell County officials are considering paying hunters and ranchers cash rewards for each feral hog shot dead. More

from the National Shooting Sports Foundation
