Hunter Rea Band
Wednesday, Nov 9th – 8:00 p.m.

The Hunter Rea Band got their start in Belton, Texas where lead singer Hunter Glaske and drummer Adam Rea began writing and playing local shows throughout college. They spent much of their time developing their writing style while pulling from their musical influences, including Randy Rogers, Wade Bowen, and Stoney Larue. One thing they were certain — they wanted a different sound; infusing Americana Roots and a lot of soul. The unique sound they have developed is already setting them apart in the Texas Music scene.

In 2014 they recorded their first single “Sweet Virginia” and followed that up with the release of their first EP, “Worrying Kind”. During the recording process they added friend and fellow singer/songwriter Adam Fischer on lead guitar and harmony vocals, which added a soulful grit to their songwriting. After the release of “Worrying Kind”, Matt Boden joined on lead guitar, as well as long time friend John Allen Davidson on bass.

With the recording of their first full length album underway, 2016 is shaping up to be a big year for these young musicians as they prepare to stretch their roots and put their unique style of music in front of more fans. Be on the lookout for a full length album, and support them in their journey of bringing a new style to Texas Music.

Opening Day Means Keeping Safety in Your Sights

No Comments

AUSTIN – The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) is reminding the hundreds of thousands of Texas hunters getting ready for opening day of deer season Saturday to keep safety in the crosshairs.

“Texas had an all-time low number of incidents last deer season and we want that trend to continue,” says Steve Hall, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s hunter education coordinator. “And the number one safety measure a deer hunter can take is to complete a hunter education training course.”

If you were born on or after Sept. 2, 1971 and this is going to be your first deer season, keep in mind you must be able to show proof of hunter education in the field. If you are under 17 you can hunt without proof if you are accompanied by a licensed hunter 17 years of older who is either certified or exempt (born prior to Sept. 2, 1971). If you are 17 and over and have not completed the course, you can obtain a one-time deferral at a hunting license dealer if you aren’t able to get into a course or take an online-only course in time. Information about hunter education is available online or by calling 512-389-4999.

“In addition to completing hunter education, now is also a good time to make sure all your equipment is up to speed, from your stands to your firearms,” Hall says.

He recommends cleaning your rifle, checking for any mechanical problems and getting it sighted in before you head afield. Being sure all equipment is in good shape is necessary to safety afield.

“Beyond that, now is a good time to go over the basic rules of gun safety, even if you’ve heard them a jillion times before,” says Hall. “Last year we continued to see an uptick in the average age of those involved in hunting incidents and that tells me that the need for a safety primer is for anyone at any age.”

The big four for gun safety are to always making sure your firearm is pointed in a safe direction, always treat it like it is loaded, always make sure of your target before you shoot (use binoculars, not your rifle scope) and keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to pull it. You can’t call a bullet back and it always has the right-of-way.

In 2015, two people died in Texas hunting-related incidents. Both involved gunshots – one self-inflicted, one by another hunter.

TPWD’s annual Hunting Accident Report for 2015 identifies the factors involved in reported hunting accidents last year. The number one cause involved hunters swinging on game outside a safe zone of fire. One way to stay out of some other hunter’s sights is wearing blaze orange clothing or hat.

“Blaze orange is not mandatory in Texas unless you’re hunting on public land, but it makes a lot of sense,” Hall says. “Deer cannot see color, but other hunters can.”

While firearms safety should be a hunter’s top priority, accidents in the field are more likely to occur without a shot being fired. “The most unreported of all hunting accidents are falls from elevated hunting blinds or tree stands,” Hall says. “If you’re going to be hunting from a tree stand, make sure to use a Tree-stand Manufacturer’s Association-approved tree stand and a TMA approved fall restraint device.”

While tree stands see a fair amount of use in East Texas, many more hunters used elevated blinds or tripods accessible by ladder.

“Most tree stand incidents occur while climbing into or out of the stand,” he says. “That means that a hunter should be tied in from the ground, back to the ground using an approved climbing system and maintain three points of contact while climbing — either two hands and one foot on the ladder at all times, or two feet and one hand.”

Don’t try to carry your rifle when you get into or out of an elevated stand and make sure it is unloaded until you are safely seated. “Use a haul line to bring your unloaded rifle up once you are safely in your blind, then, with your firearm unloaded, lower it with the haul line before climbing down,” Hall recommends.

Another thing to remember about deer stands, especially permanent blinds is that they make good habitat for smaller animals.

“Always check your blind for stinging insects, snakes and other critters that might have been living in it during the off-season,” Hall suggests.

From sharing a piano bench with his Grandmother, to opening for Joe Walsh, Dierks Bentley, The Eli Young Band, Wade Bowen, Stoney LaRue, Randy Rogers Band, Cody Canada and the Departed, Reckless Kelly, Aaron Watson and many other great artists… Chance Anderson has realized his fate. This 2007 ‘All American’ graduate has an undeniable talent that stretches far beyond the city limits of Empire, Oklahoma. Although he’s been singing in church since he could talk, his passion for this life was unrealized until he began writing, as a ‘release’, at age 16. This singer/songwriter has had no shortage of hard times in his young life, but says he is thankful for them all… as this is where his inspiration resides. His ‘inspirations’ earned him two nominations for male vocalist of the year, along with songwriter of the year, in the 2007 Payne County Line Awards. Chance’s success isn’t surprising for anyone who has ever heard his music. The reality of his songs combined with the emotion in his voice would have you believing he was a true veteran of life.

TTRMS Debut Performance: 2016

Top Songs: “Two Red Lights,” “Tonight,” “Windows Down“.
