Bow hunting

Duck hunts on upper Texas and Louisiana coast marsh ponds have been very good.

Believe it or not, duck hunting here in Southeast Texas is still hit and miss. For example, the marsh down on the coast is holding big-time numbers of gadwall that are mixed in with a few pintails, teal and shovelers. The downside is that hunters west of Beaumont are finding very few birds.

The chances of getting a shot at a buck like this one, this season, are very goo

The bow season on deer opens Saturday, Oct. 3, and based on what I’ve seen in local sporting goods stores, hunters are gearing up with new bows, arrows, feeders, game cameras and plenty of camo for what is being touted as one of the best seasons we’ve had in years.
