Open season on deer and turkey starts today, November 1st. For complete hunting season information for Hays County, visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department here. If you're reading this, that means you've already slept too late! Hunting season is about sleepily stumbling around in the dark a minimum of 2 hours before sunrise with truck-jostled coffee spilled down the front of your camouflage and crumbling biscuits stuffed in your pockets. Or at least that's how my grandfather taught me.
Note to squirrels: There is no closed season and no bag limit. Watch your tails!
