Hunters Face Danger Using Tree Stands

Humans are designed and built with feet that are designed for standing and walking on the ground. The feet and claws of squirrels and raccoons serve multi-purposes. They can move around quite handily on the ground but when necessary, they can scoot up trees with ease.

A special time of year is right around the corner. Archery season for deer in much of the state kicks off October 1. This is when the majority of bow hunters will act like squirrels and raccoons; they’ll watch for deer from elevated positions with good reason. Deer watch for predators at eye level, not 20 feet above their line of sight.

Riders Support Shop With A Cop

Saturday morning brought out riders with a special mission - to support Christmas for local children. The non-profit Shop With A Cop organization held their annual fundraising ride and jambalaya lunch and drew a larger crowd than last year.

Riders assembled at the Winnfield City Police Department and prepared to enjoy the day’s seasonal weather. Sunshine made the ride pleasant for the motorcycle riders and those that escorted the group. Other community members met at the police department to eat lunch with the riders, and many lunches were purchased and delivered around town.

After the approximately two hour ride, participants returned to the police station and were greeted with a big jambalaya lunch and bread pudding for dessert. Winners of the silent auction went home with nice prizes, in addition to sun-kissed skin and a full stomach that everyone left with.
