Gun season is coming to a close, and I have still not got to shoot my gun at a deer. I did finally see a couple of deer while out hunting, but they were does â€”â€“ and it was not doe day.
I will get to hunt a couple of more days before gun season closes. You need to be sure and check the hunting guide before you hunt because some public land is only open for hunting on the first nine days of gun season.
Have a great week!

While the margins of victory were different in the Heavener-Muldrow basketball teams' games on the first day of the Poteau Freshmen Tournament, which took place Monday at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse, the same team won. A late surge by the Bulldogs lifted them to a 40-29 victory over the Wolves, but the Lady Wolves were totally outmatched by the Lady Bulldogs in Muldrow's 45-10 victory.
The rest of the opening-round games took place Tuesday night at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse as host Poteau faced Spiro's teams.

Wow!! I did not write a column last week, but what about the Sooners and the victories they have had the last two weeks. I know they were very ugly wins, but I only have one thing to say about that â€” I would rather win ugly than lose ugly. I am of the belief that the game against Texas Christian is going to be the same kind of game.
