Outdoors: Making the trek up north for dunk hunting


I just couldn’t wait for the ducks up north to migrate here. So why not go to North Dakota to them? So that’s what I did.

My lifelong hunting partner from Little Rock, Arkansas, Wayne Smith, and I made the long pilgrimage to Wing, North Dakota, not a great distance from the border of Canada. The only tiny hotel in Wing stays booked by hunters for a year ahead so we stayed at the Tops Motel in Sterling about 21 miles south.

The streak lives on.

Texas State (19-6, 9-1 in the Sun Belt) extended its current win streak to seven matches Tuesday night after beating in-state rival UT Arlington, 3-1 (25-23, 25-23, -23-25, 25-23), inside Strahan Coliseum.

In all three sets Texas State won, the Bobcats trailed for long durations and ironically led in the one set they dropped.

Men's College Basketball: Last place projection provides motivation for State

Daily Record Sports

Danny Kaspar’s goal for Texas State’s men’s basketball program is simple – finish above .500, a feat the Bobcats haven’t accomplished since the 2004-2005 season. 

Kaspar, who is entering his fourth year as the Bobcats’ head coach, vowed to make this a reality. But Texas State will have to overcome doubts about the program after the Sun Belt conference coaches picked the Bobcats to finish last in the league.

Sports Editor

Texas State will without its best player for a little bit longer than originally expected.

During Tuesday’s basketball media luncheon, head coach Zenarae Antoine announced that Sun Belt Preseason Third-Team selection Erin Peoples wouldn’t be back with the team until around mid-December.

Peoples, the Bobcats’ leading scorer from 2014-15, tore her ACL during last offseason and has been rehabbing to rejoin her team ever since. She participated in team’s start to fall camp before re-aggravating her injury.

Next week will be one of many choices for local runners. Check out the San Marcos Runners Club web site for more information (
