in

I101311 DOG TRAIL C.jpg

Most of what I learned about quail hunting early on, I learned from UD-BOPP. For the uninformed, that’s the Upper Dubach Brotherhood of Partridge Pursuers.
My dad didn’t hunt quail when I was growing up so neither did I. However, a group of guys from the Dubach area – Charles Fuller, Lamar Colvin, Pete Smith, Jerry Rogers, et. al, took me under their wing and on hunts around north Louisiana.
I actually came close to bagging a quail once with those guys. My problem was I led the bird too far, not realizing how slow it was walking.

RHS rolls past North DeSoto

101411 RODERICK LONG C.jpg

Ruston’s homecoming game Friday night at James Stadium against North DeSoto was just what the doctor ordered.
A first half that at times could be called nothing short of bizarre might have tasted like bad medicine for Ruston, but the Bearcats received a spoonful of sugar in the form of a more focused second half effort and a suffocating defense as the Bearcats bested the Griffins 47-3.
