Spring Squirrel Season Kicks Off

The majority of hunters are going through a blue funk right about now. Turkey season has been put on the shelf until next March and it’s time to clean the gun, put away the camo and get ready for bream fishing or tackling the honey do list, whichever comes first.

Whoa, just a minute….are you a squirrel hunter? You say you are but squirrel season is six months away, right? Wrong; season opened for spring squirrel hunting Saturday May 6. You’re probably thinking it’s a little weird to be sneaking out to the woods with your shotgun in May. However, it’s the real deal; spring squirrel season is open, running through May 28 on private lands and some public areas; you’ll need to check your hunting pamphlet or give LDWF a call to see if the public area you’re interested in is open.

Eight years ago when the first spring squirrel season in modern times opened, curiosity sent me seeking some answers as well as tips on how to hunt squirrels in May.

Texas Provides Excitement Galore

April means different things to different people. For some, it’s time to get gardens planted. This is the time of year when eggs are dyed and Easter finery is selected. For me, April means I get my work done ahead of time and I start getting ready for my annual trek to the Lone Star state to chase wild turkeys.

This year, I joined four hunting partners leaving home for the 10 hour drive to fantastic Russell Ranch near Menard, Texas, a region that looks as different as daylight and dark from north Louisiana. Where we have pines, out there is mesquite and cactus and rocks, lots of rocks.

While my primary goal in making the trip each spring is to hunt turkeys, I never spend a few days there without seeing things that are just flat-out fascinating.

“Forty by Eighty” in the Books

Do you have a “bucket list”, stuff you’d like to accomplish before you “kick the bucket”?

My list is rather short. The first one I recall is that I wanted to one day go to the north country in winter and ice fish. I got to pull that off five years or so ago when I was invited on a trip for writers to Wisconsin to experience several things, including ice fishing. Scratch that off the list.

My latest “bucket” item has to do with something I wanted to accomplish by the time I reached a certain age. I had a birthday last week. I was born on March 29, 1937. Do the math; I turned 80 last Wednesday.

Lawyer Turned Chef Making Waves With New Cookbook

As an outdoor writer/broad-caster, I get to visit with a variety of interesting people from hunters and fishermen to biologists and experts in out-doors topics. Most interviews provide good information for my readers/listeners.

Occasionally, I get to interview someone who really stands out and I can’t help but get a bit excited about the quality of information I’ll get to share with my audience.

Such was the case last week when talking with Stacy Lyn Harris, a lady who fits the definition of “dynamic” which Webster defines as energetic and vigorous.
