2021 Town Bluff Alligator Hunt
210911-A-ZS026-0099 JASPER, Texas (Sept. 11, 2021) Daniel Juracek, U.S. Army veteran and Safety Specialist with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, waves at another airboat while canvassing for potential alligators during The Pineywoods Service Association (PWSA) Annual Veteran Alligator Hunt on B. A. Steinhagen Lake. Juracek was a participant in the hunt, which started in 2012 and is hosted by PWSA with cooperation from Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPWD) and the Fort Worth District. The purpose of the hunt is to honor the veterans, give them a fun event where they can see that folks appreciate what they have done for the country, create a time where they can visit with other vets in similar circumstances, and help manage the resource.
