2019-20 Hunting Season Forecast for San Saba County

You know that old saying about Texas weather, the one about hang around a few minutes and it will likely change? Well nothing could be closer to the truth than the San Saba County rainfall pattern dating back to last fall. Of course you remember the incredible rains back in October 2018 with roughly fourteen inches of rain that month. You may recall that San Saba County typically receives 28” of rainfall in twelve months but in 2018, the total amount was almost 39”! November and December of 2018 ended with nearly four additional inches and the wildlife headed into the winter months in fine physical condition and the ground soaked up the moisture like a sponge. 2019 started out great with more than thirteen inches falling from January to the end of June. The habitat and the wildlife each had a great mid-winter and stored up their resources for the remainder of the late winter.

The Richland Springs Report

I was watching a video of young Claire Crosby today. I have seen several of the videos she makes with her mom and dad. She brings tears to my eyes, not just because she has a precious sounding voice and sweet face. It is her love and joy of singing. She scrunches up that little button nose and hits the notes perfectly.

Notes from the Spring Creek Arts Guild

Notes from the Spring Creek Arts Guild

This will be the last of this particular rant about the importance of seeking the truth and verifying information before you internalize it or act on it. In the past two columns, I have talked about finding reliable information sources and fact-checking everything, and about how even The Truth can be conveyed in such a way as to be misleading.

San Saba Garden Club September Yard of the Month

Article Image Alt Text
Article Image Alt Text

By Karen Sloan

We know that August is a dreadful month for gardens and yards. Until the cooler autumn weather arrives and before the dormant season sets in, the summer heat often stretches into September. Our yards, bushes, trees, plants and flowers are all anxious to perform one last time before their winter sleep occurs. As homeowners, we must persevere until the briskness of fall begins by doing what we can to keep our outdoor landscapes alive and enjoyable.

Bruce and Emma Stewart at 1007 E. Wallace do just that. As Bruce indicated, he doesn’t have a lot blooming right now and he has struggled to keep the lawn green in spite of the fungus that attacked the St. Augustine from last year’s heavy rains and then this year the subdued rainfall and lack of adequate water, which is not unheard of in our area.

Expectations high for Archery-Only Hunting Season opening September 28

The hot, dry conditions that have been gripping most of Texas could make Saturday’s archery-only white-tailed deer season opener a challenge for bow hunters, yet those who know how to work the conditions can still find good hunting.

For the first time this fall, hunters are required to report all antlerless deer harvested in 21 south-central Texas counties—see details below.

“Although dry conditions should encourage deer to frequent feeders more consistently and more often, the hot temperatures may curtail movement during much of the day except for the periods around dawn and dusk,” said Alan Cain, TPWD white-tailed deer program leader. “Until cooler temperatures arrive and deer movement picks up hunters may consider using game cameras to narrow down peak deer movement near their favorite hunting location and increase chances of success.”
