New Lone Star Outdoor News, first of the year, out today

alsonDeer season is Texas is winding to a close, but some big bucks are falling in the final few weeks of the regular season down south as the rut continues to swing in some areas.

Read all about the end of deer season, along with a Texas lake not know for producing huge fish that just spit out a 13-pound bass for one lucky Manchaca angler, in this year’s first edition of Lone Star Outdoor News, available on newsstands and online today.

Also in this issue, the crew from LSON recently returned from the Dallas Safari Club convention, and we take a look at the closing of Botswana to trophy hunting and the impact of that decision for American hunters. Our DSC coverage continues with a full-page photo spread from all of the goings-on at the convention floor.

For saltwater anglers, the Galveston Bay complex is on fire right now for big trout, and redfish action all along the coast is solid.

A second-chance buck, a 6-year-old catching a great tarpon and Texas’ first-ever capture and transport of bighorn sheep from public to private property are all in this chock-full issue.

As always, we have the most accurate fishing reports and our popular Game Warden Blotter recounting tales of some of the less-than-ethical hunters in the state.
