Calhoun County game wardens appeared Tuesday night on the season premiere of a reality TV show.
They were on the season’s first episode of “Lone Star Law” at 8 p.m. on Animal Planet, which is Channel 68 for Suddenlink customers in Victoria.
The episode, called “Justice Service,” showed Ben Bailey and his wife, Chelsea Bailey, finding a man who had shot a hog from his vehicle on SH 238.
Shooting from a public roadway and hunting on land without the owner’s consent are both Class A misdemeanors. Ben Bailey said Tuesday morning the man they found in the episode has been charged but not found guilty.
“They filmed us one weekend a month for a few months,” Bailey said.
He said it took some time to get used to the cameras, but there was no shortage of interesting things for them to capture.
“We’re always getting into something down here. It’s a great county for a game warden,” he said.
The Baileys are among the five game wardens serving Calhoun County. They might all be featured in future episodes patrolling for those who violate the law as it relates to shrimping and oystering.
“Lone Star Law” is in its fourth season and is produced by Engle Entertainment and directed by Ben Shank. Viewers can go to animalplanet.com/tv-shows/lone-star-law/ to watch this and other episodes.
