Stop to smell the roses and watch the squirrels

September 9, 2013

Every year about this time, I find that I can’t concentrate on much of anything other than the weather — hoping for cooler temps. It is less than a month until the opening of bow season, and that means I will be sitting for hours in a tree stand enjoying the quiet fall woods.
There is just something about being a bystander and watching nature unfold in front of you. It is not just about “shooting a deer,” but enjoying the birds and other animals living their lives as if there are no people in the whole wide world.

Crappie tournament Sept. 21

September 9, 2013

Attention all crappie fisherman. Crappie USA will have a tournament Sept. 21 at Wister Lake. Pre-registration is preferred, and can be done by one of the members of the two-man team by going online to www.crappie.com.
The cost is $30 per angler.
According to the guys down at Tote-A-Poke Coffee Club, Jerry Beale is the favorite, but I think the winner will be Robbie Brassfield from Bokoshe. However, we can't forget about “Uncle” Clay Bennett. He's always on the water crappie fishing at Wister Lake.

Freshmen Pirates' strong second-half surge falls short

September 8, 2013

The majority of the 2013 freshmen Poteau Pirates have played together for six years now, and they have had their share of hard knocks. Thursday night's season opener at Costner Stadium was played in two phases.
The McAlester Buffaloes easily stampeded the Pirates by the score of 21-0 in the first half, but the Pirates must have been been watching old game film and reading the press clipping of previous freshmen teams. Even though they could only score eight points, the Pirates held the ball for all but four plays. The final score was McAlester 21, Poteau 8.
