Outdoors: Deer season is closing in


Texas is the number one state in deer population with the deer herd numbering near four million.  Other states like Mississippi and Alabama have more deer per square foot because they don’t come near the total acreage of Texas so their deer are crammed into less area.

In 2015 the total deer harvested in Texas was 581,000 with the largest harvest, as always, in the Hill Country with south Texas second and the Pineywoods third.

What can we expect this upcoming season which opens Saturday Nov. 5 in both North and South Zones?

Daily Record Sports

San Marcos’ playoff drought ended Tuesday with a 3-2 (25-14, 25-14, 13-25, 24-26, 15-13) win against Manor, which secured the Lady Rattlers at least third place in District 14-6A. 

San Marcos will make its first appearance in the playoffs in five years after Tuesday’s win. But pulling out the victory over the Lady Mustangs wasn’t easy as the Lady Rattlers were without senior setter Laura Gamboa and sophomore libero Celie Contreras.

College Football: State's search for leadership

Sports Editor

The next step in Texas State’s development is finding leaders.

After reviewing tape from Saturday’s 40-34 loss to UL Monroe, head coach Everett Withers was frustratingly reminded about the youthful state of his roster.

In particular, he referenced Brandon McDowell’s last punt return that setup the team’s final drive before Tyler Jones’ Hail Mary attempt.
