My son and his big axis buc

Fishing and Hunting Southeast Texas By Capt. Bill Watkins

Late this past Friday afternoon, my son William was sitting in a nice comfortable box blind on a private ranch in central Texas. Earlier the ranch manager had dropped him off at the blind and it wasn’t that long until the action began. Several axis does began to appear at the feeder. This was a great way to start as the objective was to take a large axis buck. A couple of smaller axis bucks came out and began to push each other around in a mock battle. After a short while two large bucks came out into the opening. My William has never been one to get in a hurry to shoot. Usually when deer or hogs come out into the open to feed, they are very cautious. They don’t like to be in the open and it takes a few minutes for them to settle down and begin feeding. It is as though they know that feeders are dangerous places but the pickings are easy and very tempting. Unlike his father William always takes his time to wait for the animals to settle down and get comfortable with the situation.

There are still a lot of speckled trout in Sabine Lake called

Fishing and Hunting Southeast Texas By Capt. Bill Watkins

An angler called me the other day about booking a fishing trip. He stated that he wanted to catch speckled trout and red fish but he had heard that Sabine Lake was all fresh and muddy and that there were very few specks left. I explained that the recent floods had moved the fish around some but we were catching a lot of speckled trout and reds as well.

Experience, intuition used to prepare for Panthers

#34, Cole Myers, drags down a Bear runner from behind.

It’s been two weeks since the Pirates’ last football game, a onepoint loss to the Montgomery Bears the Pirates had every chance to win.

The Pirates’ seemingly minor mistakes, lining up in the wrong spot, leading with the wrong foot, jumping offsides, missing a kick, not hustling downfield, made the difference in the game. If any one of three or four plays had been executed correctly, the Pirates would be 1-0 going into Friday night’s game versus the Conroe Caney Creek Panthers.

The Pirates’ errors, whether giving up points or failing to capitalize on scoring opportunities made a 28 point difference in the game’s outcome, Vidor Head Coach Jeff Mathews reckons.
