Join Higher Calling Wildlife founder and Dark Outdoors host Chester Moore as he interviews veteran and outdoors lover Lucas Pelt who experienced a very serious cottonmouth bite. Learn how it happened and the experience Pelt had in the aftermath.
In our Dark Outdoors defense segment, we check in with renowned snake venom expert Dr. Spencer Greene and learn what to do if you do get bitten by a snake.
Oh, and we also cover what NOT to do.
The outdoors is a place of serenity and beauty but at times the outdoors experience goes dark. And it can go dark quickly for someone experiencing a venomous snake bite.

Elk In TX Hill Country
A few weeks ago, we put out the word for free-ranging elk photos in the Texas Hill Country.
This is the first shot we got. It’s from Kennth Johnson and he got this near Rock Springs, TX.
Reader Rpy Heiderman photographed this elk near Utopia, TX.
If you have photos of free-ranging elk anywhere in Texas, email me at email@example.com. I’d love to share the photos with others.
SFA Student Wins 2022 Tony Houseman Conservation Legacy Award
Borel is studying forestry with a wildlife management concentration.
“It’s such an honor and privilege to receive this award,” Borel said.
“I want to make an impact for wildlife and also get young people involved in conservation, hunting and fishing. This award inspires me to push even harder toward those goals.”
Borel has contributed online articles to fishgame.com and has a feature entitled “Why This College Girl Huns” in the Sept/Oct. edition of Texas Fish & Game.
The award is given annually by Higher Calling Wildlife®, founded by Chester Moore.
“Tony Houseman was a mentor of mine at a very young age. I met him when I was 20 and he made a tremendous impact on me and my career. This honor is for his long-standing legacy of conservation and helps give young people going above and beyond the call of duty a boost to carry on in what can be very hard work,” Moore said.
Borel is the third recipient of the award and was chosen because of her heart for serving and conservation.
“Grades are wonderful. Academics are important and she has those but then there is heart and commitment on top of that. We watched Amber not only serve relentlessly helping some projects we did with young children and wildlife but also write a book about shark conservation she wants to give to kids. She’s a special young lady and me and my wife Lisa are honored to know her,” Moore said.
Tony Houseman was a dedicated conservationist who at different times served as president of the @houstonsafariclubfoundation and Dallas Safari Club. He helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for conservation work across North America and Africa.
His last major hunt was a “green hunt” to extract DNA from a white rhino for conservation purposes, which is why the award itself is a bronze rhinoceros.
Higher Calling Wildlife® is proud that Amber Borel is the third recipient of the Tony Houseman Conservation Legacy Award.
