Training and Practice Comes Together

From the time that my grandson, Levi was still in diapers he has been going into the woods with me. At first, we rode tandem on an old Honda four-wheeler and then later we managed to afford a Polaris UTV.

Pirate QB Dylan Dial looks for running room Friday versus the BH Eagles.

Until I turned twelve years old, I was not allowed to follow my dad and my uncles into the woods hunting. At age ten I was just not mature enough to take those two- and threemile hikes following some really good squirrel dogs. Of course, I thought that I was ready but they were right. I would have griped and complained most of the way and ruined the hunt for my dad. When the day finally came it was in November and was a cold gray day. Usually there was at least two hunters but as my mom had seven brothers, there could be as many as four. There was always one hunter in the group that was designated to carry a .22 cal. rifle with open sights. The other or others in the group carried shot guns. When a squirrel is treed, they will often hide in a thick spot high in the branches where it is impossible to see enough of it to get a clear shot. Sometimes, they can’t be seen at all.

Run game leads to Vidor Pirates Grey victory

The Pirate ship sailed into Little Cypress to put on a six-touchdown

scoring clinic, as the Vidor Pirates Grey football team beat the LC-M Green team 41-6 in the Southeast Texas Junior Football League this past Saturday.

The Pirate running game dominated with 8.6 yards per carry for 250 yards on 29 carries and five touchdowns, while the defense forced four turnovers.

It took less than 15 seconds for running back Jordan Verde to take the Jett Brucia handoff through the defensive line crossing linebackers to blaze past the secondary in route to a 55-yard Pirate touchdown with 9:46 left in the first quarter.

My son and his big axis buc

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.
