Archery season is over for this year, so now it is time to hunt some different critters for a while. We still have a couple weeks left to do some squirrel hunting before the season closes, and predator hunting is good this time of year, also.
One type of hunting I love to do is crow hunting, and it is open for the next couple of months. It is a lot of fun for kids and grown-ups alike, and I plan on taking my boys on a few trips in the near future.
The Poteau Daily News has a new Facebook page.
â€śActually we made the switch a few months ago. Word has been slow to get out because we left the old page up,â€ť said PDN publisher Robert Shearon.
â€śThe old page has been eliminated and we are hoping everyone will find their way to our new page. We keep it posted with links to news and sports stories, and some readers have posted comments and notices,â€ť Shearon said.
