Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I hope you all are getting to be with family and friends as well as having some good food.
Come Watch the Pirates Thursday Morning
The Poteau Pirates will have an open practice to the public at 8 a.m. Thursday at Costner Stadium as they prepare for Saturday afternoon's Class 4A state semifinal against the Oklahoma City Douglass Trojans at McAlester's Hook Eales Stadium. Kickoff will be at 1:30 p.m.
The online deer check station has been a hotspot this year. The numbers are looking good â€” a lot of venison on the table all across the state.
Hereâ€™s what has been checked as of Wednesday morning: 56,471 deer, 176 turkey and 42 elk. This year, my family has actually contributed to that number early. My wife, Paula, kept telling me that I sure went out a bunch and never brought home a deer. This year Iâ€™ve gotten one, and so has Cash and Koby.
