Birds of a Feather Move With Bad Weather

Every April, I head out for southwest Texas for one of my favorite activities. My destination is the Russell Ranch near Menard where I’ll spend a few days hunting Rio Grande turkeys.

I have never seen a Rio here in Louisiana. They don’t live here; our habitat only supports our Eastern sub-species. I wouldn’t have been too surprised last week, though, to see a Rio crossing a road. Why? Hurricanes tend to cause strange things to happen in the bird world.

My first encounter with a displaced bird came in October of 1985 as Hurricane Juan was moving inland off our coast. I identified the first Vermilion flycatcher I had ever seen as it sat on a branch just outside my office window in Ruston.

Antley Tapped for National Award

On my way to Downsville to visit Jerry Antley, one of this year’s recipients of the Legends of the Outdoors Hall of Fame award, a hen turkey crossed the road. I mentioned the turkey to Antley and he asked a question that is totally in keeping with who he is and how he thinks.

“Did she have any poults (young turkeys) with her?”

One of the main reasons Antley was selected for this prestigious national award is his passion for the wild turkey. Having spent decades as a volunteer for the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) from the local to the national level, it’s not surprising that Antley’s focus would be on these magnificent wild game birds.

Joella Bates, A Moder Day Wonder Woman

Having arrived in the city two Octobers ago where the annual Southeastern Outdoor Press Association (SEOPA) conference was being held, hunger pangs caused me to pull into a fast food sit-down eatery in Eufaula, Alabama.

While devouring my sandwich, a lady dressed in camo walked into the restaurant and ordered her sandwich. Since the conference I was to attend had to do with the outdoors, I suspected she was in Eufaula for the same purpose as me. I walked over, introduced myself and asked if she was there for the conference.

She nodded that she was, invited me to sit at her table. We shared our lunch together and I became acquainted with Joella Bates. Little did I know at the time that I was having lunch with a world class archer who I was to learn could do far more with bow and arrow than I could with a gun.

Visit to Quebec Stirs Old Memories

On our way home from a weekend get-away to Mississippi, my wife and I exited I-20 for a stop in Tallulah. As we approached the on-ramp to get back on the interstate, a sign abruptly changed our plan. That particular on-ramp was closed, necessitating an alternate route west toward home.

Highway 80 parallels the interstate and we proceeded along the highway with cotton and soy bean fields stretching for thousands of acres on either side of the road, making for an impromptu but enjoyable side trip.

Bankston Talks About Setting Goals and Preparing For The WSHS Tiger Football Season

Last week I had the opportunity to sit down and meet with new Winnfield Senior High School Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Lyn Bankston, and he had plenty of positive things to share about the team and upcoming season.

He said one of the most impressive things about the team is that when they began discussing goals, they were not only about winning games, but were about developing values and principles. Coach Bankston said the first goal established was based on the acronym TEAM – Together everyone achieves more. The team’s second goal is to build trust in one another. Their third common goal is to affect someone in a positive way each day. The fourth goal the team set was to work through the process every day in all phases of their lives to become winners.
