Arlington, TX (Fort Worth Star-Telegram) — Moses Lopez spent his early days hunting with a slingshot.
He mostly bagged rabbits and squirrels and was handy with a rod and reel as well.
“I’d tag along with my brother,” Lopez said. “That’s where I learned to hunt and fish.”
It was during the Depression in the 1930s, and Lopez lived in Winnie just east of Galveston Bay with his mother, four brothers and two sisters. Besides hunting and fishing, he found odd jobs and worked in the fields, planting and harvesting crops, doing whatever he could to help out.
