Outdoors: Enjoying the first hunt of dove season

JIM DARNELL

The first hunting opportunity of the 2016-17 season opened last Thursday, Sept. 1, as thousands of Texas dove hunters took to the field.  My son, Tim, and I were among them. We both were sporting new shotguns and hoped to drop a dove with our first shot.  As we impatiently waited gunfire began to rumble in the distance on all sides.  Hunters were blazing away at birds pouring in for an early breakfast.

Bobcat Football: State focuses internally heading into bye week

ISHMAEL JOHNSON Sports Editor As the buzz surrounding Saturday’s upset continues to marinate around Texas State, head coach Everett Withers isn’t much for reminiscing. Traditionally Withers hasn’t talked about the previous week, win or lose, during his weekday media press conferences. It’s how he was at James Madison and how Withers will operate during normal game weeks. However, with Texas State’s oddly scheduled week two bye, Withers gave some rare retrospective remarks on this weekend during Tuesday’s media luncheon.

Bobcat Football: Gabe Loyd's rapid ascension

This time last year, Gabe Loyd just completed the second game of his sophomore season for Fort Scott Community College in Kansas.

Saturday Gabe Loyd captained a Texas State team that knocked off 21-point favorite Ohio on the road in his first Football Bowl Subdivision game. It was in some ways a culmination of Loyd’s quick rise over the past eight months.
