Hunter’s greatest trophies call him Grandpa

To Alvin Dusek, the thrill of the hunt is second only to the thrill of being Grandpa.
“And when you put them together, you’ve got one heck of a day,” he said.
The 76-year-old TWA member lives in Temple, but he spends most “good weather days” at the 16-acre spread of land he owns in Belton. He calls it The Ponderosa. “It’s a nice place for dove hunting in the fall, and down the road in Holland is a good spot for fishing,” he said.
But he’s rarely got the place to himself. With seven grandchildren, he’s got plenty of overnight guests. “And I wouldn’t have it any other way,” Dusek said.
