The late bow season is here

December 6, 2012

Gun season is over, and the second part of bow season is shaping up to be a good one. The weather has been warm and dry, so if we can get some cooler weather — and a little rain — the hunting should pick up.
The rut should be over, and deer will be on the same feeding pattern they were on in the early season. It may take a few weeks for the deer to settle down after all the hunters have left the woods after gun season, but I have always liked hunting this time of year.
Have a great week!

Same official who made questionable call in OU-Oregon game was at OU-TCU contest

December 6, 2012

Did anybody else notice in the Oklahoma-Texas Christian game Saturday when R.J. Washington made a great pass rush and forced the TCU quarterback to cough up the ball. The announcers kept on saying, “It looked like his arm was moving forward. Let's go to Los Angeles, and see what our expert official has to say about the play and just what his ruling would be.” When they cut to the official, I started laughing so hard, I just about fell out of my recliner. I thought it was so ironic.
