Earth’s average global temperature from 2013 to 2017

Continuing the planet's long-term warming trend, globally averaged temperatures in 2017 were 1.62 degrees Fahrenheit (0.90 degrees Celsius) warmer than the 1951 to 1980 mean, according to scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York. That is second only to global temperatures in 2016.

quail

The 2016 Texas quail season served as a renaissance reminder of how good hunting can be when all the right elements converge. Specifically, weather and habitat aligned to create a “super boom” year for quail production that led to exceptional hunts the likes of which had not been seen in many years.

Catching a bunch of fish in 100-degree heat can be borderline impossible — but it can be done. Some of the best fishing right now is on East Galveston Bay and on Calcasieu Lake for trout and reds. Crappie fishing on Sam Rayburn is excellent, and catfishing on Toledo Bend is very good at night.

Fishing on Sabine Lake has been slow overall. Your best bet is to fish the jetties with live mullet for reds, or live shrimp for trout. The short rigs have been fair for trout on jigs. The rigs farther out are holding ling, small snapper and bull reds.

For the second straight year, Texas dove hunters will have a 90-day season.

The 2017-18 migratory game bird seasons adopted by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department give Texas hunters a 90-day dove season with a daily limit of 15 birds; duck hunters will be limited to one pintail per day, and the early teal season is set for Sept. 9-24 with a daily bag limit of six birds.

The really good news is that South Texas dove hunters will see increased opportunity this year thanks to a season-framework adjustment expanding the early September four-day Special White-winged Dove Area hunting season to the entire South Zone boundary.
