From time to time, folks have asked what my favorite type of hunting is. Such a question does require some deep thinking. The only hunting that I did not enjoy was when I was first taken out snipe hunting at night.

Coming back to reality, I have always had wing shooting with ducks, geese and doves at the top of the list. Even quail and jacksnipe are great challenges, but at the very top is duck hunting.

The water temperature on Sabine Lake this past Monday was 69 degrees, and with this week’s cold front lowering temperatures into the 40s, it is a sure bet that water temps will drop at least a few more degrees. That’s going to give flounder fishing on Sabine Lake and in East Galveston Bay a big-time bump. The run on Sabine has been pretty darned good the past couple of weeks, but I can guarantee you it’s going to be red hot for at least the next week to 10 days.

We gardeners might know some plants. Some gardeners know about lots of plants and can impress you with not only names but details about hundreds of species and gardening options. But all of us do come to rely on the plant tag at a garden center for information. Most of us check the tag before we buy. Sometimes we wonder how reliable this information is. We can probably believe most of it.
