Archery season for deer opens in Louisiana next Tuesday, October 1, and runs through January 31, 2014. So guess what the topic is at the next “Wild Connections” series sponsored by the Union Parish Library and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries? How did you guess? A program on bow hunting and archery will be held Tuesday, Sept. 24, a week before the season starts. The seminar will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the Union Parish Library. Archery Specialist Rodney Denton will present details about preparing for bow season, tips for archery hunters and techniques for bow hunting. It should be a great night for bowhunters and an excellent opportunity for youngsters to learn more about the sport. For more information, contact the library at 368-9226.

It should be no surprise that the University of Arkansas came up with more hawgs than anybody else and won the FLW College Fishing Southern Conference tournament this past weekend on Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs, even if the fishes were little “hawgs”.
Kenneth Anderson and Drew Porto, both of Fayetteville, Ark., won with five bass weighing 7 pounds, 14 ounces. The victory earned the club $2,000 and advanced the team to the FLW College Fishing Southern Conference Invitational tournament. Fish caught were few and far between and quite tight between the eyes for the most part.The top 15 teams advance to the Southern Conference Invitational tournament.
That includes Louisiana Tech University fishing team members Tyler Moses of Deville and Brandon Greco of Shreveport. They caught four fish weighing 3-14.
