Deer change habits, avoid hunters

By Capt. Bill Watkins
 

The game camera told the story. In three nights it had captured at least nine different deer feeding under and around my feeder. Three of them were mature does with a couple of legal eight point bucks. One of the bucks looked as big as a yearling steer with a thick stubby neck, although his rack was not too special. This buck was at least four years old and had survived all efforts to take him out.

The Pirates end the season at 3-7, a one game improvement over the 2014 season. PNG limited Vidor’s once potent offense to 7 points, 10 first downs, 158 total yards and caused three turnovers in clinching a share of the district title with Nederland.

Rain dampens opening day

The frost was white on the ground and the stars were like diamonds twinkling on an ink black background. No doubt the deer would be moving on this opening morning of the season. Hold on! So much for big buck daydreams in fantasy land.

Pirates take last minute 27-24 road win over GCM Patriots

By Pearce Bland

Stallworth Stadium in Baytown was full of energy as the Vidor Pirates prepared for the October 15th game against Goose Creek Memorial Patriots. #24 Bridger Quirante started the game with a kickoff to Goose Creek. Vidor’s defense pushed and pulled on the Goose Creek offensive line, and kept them away from the end zone, but not far enough to prevent the Patriots putting the first points on the board in the form of a Field Goal.
