Opening weekend of deer season and the north zone opener on ducks was on the soggy side, but at least we got our first good cold front that should set the stage for excellent deer hunting this week.


Two duck hunters stuck in the marsh near Adams Bayou and the Inter-Coastal Waterway in Orange were rescued by Sheriff Keith Merritt after calling the Orange County Sheriff's Office for help on Tuesday, Jan. 7 at about 7:40 a.m.

According to a news release from OCSO, the hunters were attempting to navigate a duck blind when the boat became stuck in the icy muck. The two men reportedly tired to free the boat for several hours but were unsuccessful.
