New issue of LSON out today

gatorHunters fighting over fence lines, the president of the Chinese Deer Association makes a visit to Texas and an 11-year-old angler hauls in a blue marlin almost three times as big as he is.

Those are just a few of the articles in the Aug. 24 issue of Lone Star Outdoor News, available across the state today.

Our readers will enjoy the story of Bin Zheng, who trekked all the way from China to attend the Texas Deer Association convention several weeks ago in San Antonio. He made the trip with his daughter to learn about America’s deer industry and how it could help the fledgling industry in China.

Along with Zheng, take a look at young Connor Kelly and hear about how he brought a 150-pound blue marlin to the boat in early August.

Also in the issue, LSON touches on late-season dove hunting, flounder gigging along the coast, pintails in decline and shed hunting for pronghorns.

As always, check out the great photography by members of the LSON team, including this Matagorda Island gator by Capt. Scott Sommerlatte.
