Wister senior boys glad for a sixth straight trip to state baseball tournament

October 4, 2012

WISTER — Last Friday, things were not looking too promising for the Wister Wildcats baseball team to keep the streak alive of seasons at state. At that moment, the streak stood at five.
After the ’Cats lost the Class A Regional Tournament title game 11-0 to host Rattan, they had to beat Tushka for a second time to make state as consolation champions.
With the game tied 2-2 in the seventh inning, senior Tyler Gibson hit a two-run home run to propel the Wildcats to a 4-2 victory — and make it six straight seasons at state, dating back to May 2010.

Deer season is here, and I drew first blood this time

October 4, 2012

It took two hunts and three shots, but I drew first blood on the second day of archery season. The deer was not a trophy one, but it was to me because I took it with a bow.
On day one, Dan Carter and I headed out to our little hunting spot in the evening time to try out luck. Dan bowhunts out of a lawn chair, and he always sees and shoots at deer which is amazing to me. He had an encounter with a fawn on the first evening just before dark but did not get a shot off after a-10-minute standoff due to lack of daylight.
