The Texas deer season is off and running, with some tremendous bucks falling during the first few weeks of bow and MLDP seasons.
However, because of ample rains in much of the state, the natural browse is tremendous, making hunting near feeders tough. Read about what the rest of the season holds in store in this issue of Lone Star Outdoor News, available now on newsstands across the state.
Also in this issue, quail numbers remain low, but it is looking better than last year. Will this season make up for the last few years?
Meanwhile, waterfowl hunters are gearing up for what could be one of the best seasons in years. When will the ducks get here? Read about it in this issue, along with the parasite commonly referred to as "rice breast" in ducks.
For anglers, check out the stories on freshwater crabs in North Texas lakes, an Austin angler who hooked a freakish catch and a redfish report from the coast.
As always, we have the most accurate fishing reports and our popular Game Warden Blotter recounting tales of some of the less-than-ethical hunters in the state.
