This 22-pointer was tagged last week in South Texas on a low fenced ranch.

The greatest thing about deer hunting is that we never know what is going to be seen during any given hunt. The best possible situation is that we get the opportunity to see a muy grande buck, make the shot and have bragging rights for years to come. On the flip side, there is the surprise factor like opening the door of your blind and finding yourself staring point blank at a bobcat. There is always adventure in walking to and from a blind.

Heading into the July 4 weekend leads us to an array of fishing options. On the coast, your best bet is to fish the jetties with live shrimp, finger mullet or mud minnows. It’s a sure thing that there will be plenty of boats fishing the rocks, which is why live baits will rule at the Sabine jetties.

The Dave Holder Fishing Show was held in Houston recently and, as usual, it was nothing short of fantastic. I was there, and it was like a traffic jam of people from Southeast Texas that included Sabine Lake guide Dickie Colburn, East Bay guide Jim West and a whole lot of Beaumont fishermen looking to get the latest on what’s going on in the world of saltwater fishing.

The reports that I have been receiving from the Hill Country and East to the Texas Piney Woods are of an abundant supply of corns. Whenever that happens, the deer seem to not move much during the daylight hours. They will feed at night and remain near the feeding area, if possible. There are, however, some situations that will cause the deer to move around during the daylight hours even if ample food is nearby.
