Youth hunters making memories that last a lifetime

October 24, 2013

Last weekend was the youth deer season and today's physical edition and e-edition have several pictures of youth hunters who were successful in taking a deer.
I do need to give a special thanks to Richard Parks of Clayton who was the official guide for my boys last weekend. His son, Butch, also got in on the guiding action and I greatly appreciate their time.
Have a great week!
