Doves, ducks, deer and gators are on the hunting menu here in Southeast Texas.

We are just about there. Dove season starts Sept. 1, teal season is Sept. 12, bow season on deer opens Oct. 3, alligator season is Sept 10, and Oct. 1 is the East Texas squirrel season opener. It’s definitely prep time for hunting in Southeast Texas.
