Spies, drones, runaways, yoga and kidnapping: episode five had it all. The episode was framed by Saul's duck-hunting trip with the old boys network of DC. Invited by the White House chief of staff, Saul assumes that he was there to network with his colleagues in his possibly permanent role as the CIA director. Instead, he is “ambushed” by Senator Lockhart, who informs Saul that the Berenstein intelligence era would be cut short and that Lockhart would soon be nominated to take his place as the agency's head.

"So much to do ... so little time," certainly describes this time of the year for hunters and anglers. That's the phrase that kept running through my head while unsuccessfully trying to put a few pounds of venison into the freezer during last week's early muzzleloader deer hunt.Last night I cemented the arrangements for my annual sea duck hunt with St. Michaels guide Norm Haddaway. Joining me will be local waterfowling fans Dick Broden, Kermit Henning and Gerry Putt. Norm suggested shooting from an off-shore blind this year and that suits me just fine.

The Corner BYOB in Hampden has opened a new establishment right next to itself. The new joint is named The Other Corner Charcuterie Bar. The Other Corner Charcuterie Bar has a full liquor license, but diners at the original Corner BYOB will still be able to bring in their own beer and bottles of wine just as always. "We're starting off light, making pates and mousses" owner and chef Bernard Dehaene said. Eventually, The Other Corner will be curing its own meats, too, he said.

Follow along at home now. In December, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Maryland Department of the Environment filed suit in U.S. District Court here, accusing the city of Baltimore of polluting Gwynns Falls and the Patapsco River with tainted wastewater from two major municipal facilities.The suit alleges that, for years, the city's Ashburton water-filtration plant routinely discharged too much chlorine and other waste materials into Gwynns Falls, a tributary of the Patapsco. The suit further alleges that the Patapsco sewage plant sporadically released a variety of pollutants into the river, including chlorine, phosphorus - a nutrient blamed for degrading the Chesapeake - and fecal coliform.

For the first time in decades there will be regular waterfowl hunting in Maryland during part of the deer season, but the Department of Natural Resources passed on a proposal to liberalize Canada goose shooting.There will be no honker or duck shooting during the deer season, but other than the Saturday opener on Nov. 30, snow geese can be shot through the remainder of the statewide modern firearms deer hunt.On the Canada goose side, DNR stuck with its original proposal -- after the Wildlife Advisory Commission suggested otherwise -- and will open the shoot on Nov. 12, a Tuesday.

Despite last Wednesday's daylong rain, Kermit Henning, Tim Flannery, Glen Burnie's Tom Elliott and I joined Claiborne guide Norm Haddaway for a dynamite sea duck hunt off of Cook's Point.Haddaway, who operates Chesapeake Expeditions guide service (410-745-5682), is probably one of the most innovative and most experienced sea duck guide operating on the Chesapeake Bay.To my knowledge he was the first sea ducker to have shunned strings of cheap, plastic milk carton-based decoys and painted wooden blocks for high-quality traditional decoys.

*TC The boss tells me that I'm supposed to use this week' outdoors column to introduce myself. The problem is that I don't really know how to go about it.About a dozen years ago, I began a weekly hunting and fishing column in Carroll County, and in the early '80s I did a couple of pages a week for an all-sports paper called SportsFirst by The News American.My first columns just jumped into the middle of the season in progress.Besides, with the rockfish season kicking into gear last week while flounder, bluefish, spot, and Spanish mackerel are still nothing short of great, I hate the idea of boring you with personal facts.

CLARIFICATIONAn article and photograph in yesterday's editions of The Sun described how seven women shot 45 mallard ducks during a morning hunt on a Dorchester County farm. Forty-three of the ducks were banded birds raised and released on the farm, and two of the ducks were wild birds. State law governing the number of ducks hunters can shoot on a single day -- the "bag limit" rule -- exempts from the count birds raised and released on a farm, so the hunters were not in violation of the individual daily bag limit for mallards, which is four birds (with only one being female)

QUANTICO, Md. -- Red-winged blackbirds moved quickly, close to the top of the marsh edge along Rewastico Creek in Wicomico County. Turkey vultures rode the wind currents above the blackbirds, and higher still small flights of geese noisily made their way south.From across the creek and beyond perhaps a half-mile of thick marsh, gunfire rumbled through the morning, heavily punctuated the boom of what was either an artillery piece or a 10-gauge shotgun.But all was quiet on the northern marsh front.

WASHINGTON -- They won't be hunting on the Eastern Shore, but a group of House and Senate members will have ducks in their sights later this week when they sit down to complete work on the Department of Interior appropriations bill for the next fiscal year.They must deal with a provision added to the Senate version of the bill two months ago by Maryland Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski.That amendment has sparked a mini-war of words between animal rights activists, who charge the Baltimore Democrat with "blatant political interference" in the federal regulatory process, and operators of private hunting areas on the Eastern Shore, where ducks raised in captivity are released and then shot.
