Outdoors: Stories about Game Wardens

Occasionally, I like to report what our state game wardens are doing. Most people think they only enforce game and fish laws. Think again. They are fully vested law enforcement officers, capable of making any kind of arrest for illegal activities. Much of their time is absorbed in apprehending illegal drug activity. Note these examples.

A Bowie County game warden stopped a vehicle for flashing its bright lights on and off at passing vehicles. The driver appeared to be impaired and claimed people were chasing him.

DEL VALLE – The Lady Rattlers extended their District 14-6A winning streak with a 3-1 (22-25, 25-22, 25-13, 25-16) win over Del Valle on Tuesday. 

San Marcos is now 2-0 in district competition and has settled into a groove on the volleyball court. Senior outside hitter Alex Contreras said the team’s improvement has come because they realize it’s “crunch time” if the Lady Rattlers want to make the playoffs.

Texas State head coach Everett Withers announced junior linebacker Easy Anyama suffered a torn achilles against Houston, which will sideline him for the rest of the season.

“We’re going to miss Easy,” Withers said. “But that was the only major injury we had (against the Cougars) … One major injury comes out of the deal. It happens that’s just the nature of the game. We’ve got to move on.”

College Football: Texas State not panicking following blowout loss

Texas State (1-2) is still on course.

Saturday’s loss to No. 6 Houston (4-0) meant that the Bobcats have lost their past two games 106-6. It’s a farcry from their opening 56-54 triple overtime win over Ohio. A record crowd (33,133) inside Bobcat Stadium saw Texas State experience its worst loss in over a decade, but head coach Everett Withers isn’t hitting the panic button.
