October is the month for some exceptional bass fishing on lakes within a quick-hit run from Beaumont, or for that matter, Southeast Texas in general. With each passing cold front, water temperatures on lakes like Sam Rayburn and Toledo Bend drop into that magical zone that tells bass it’s time to chow down and fatten up for the lean winter months to come. The water temperature on both Rayburn and T-Bend is holding right at the 75 to 77 degree mark.

The fastest athletes on dirt will return to Delta Downs on Friday, Oct. 19, as the 2012-13 thoroughbred horseracing season begins with a first-race post time of 5:45 p.m. After opening weekend, live race days are Wednesday-Saturday until the meet concludes March 23. The only exceptions to the schedule will come on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, when the track is closed.

Nothing perks up bow hunting for deer like an October cold front. This week’s blast of cold air is exactly what bow hunters in East Texas needed to jumpstart the rut in the Piney Woods. Timely rainfall across much of the state that began during winter 2011 and continued through the first half of this year generated much needed habitat recovery, according to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department biologists. Those important food sources resulted in increased deer antler growth, improved body conditions and higher fawn production and survival.
