This particular Saturday, Carolyn killed her first deer, as part of an all-girls hunting trip at Wildcat Mountain Ranch in Robert Lee, Texas. More

Tyler Hunter Takes Trophy Elk On Northern Colorado Hunt
from the Tyler Paper
There is little doubt that Tyler's Bill Blomdahl will close the fall hunting season on a ranch in South Texas.

Probably the most surprising thing about the big bull was that it was the first elk for a hunter known for his propensity for taking trophies. More

from The Bismarck Tribune
Le Ann Christensen nudged the power lever on her husband's wheelchair and guided him out the front door. She laid his camouflage blanket across his lap. She sprayed him down with a scent-masking compound. Don Christensen was going deer hunting. Multiple sclerosis may have robbed him of his arms and hands and legs.

from the Detroit Free-Press
Raymond Andres has spent almost every autumn for the last 6 1/2 decades in the woods. But this fall, he says, his years are working against him. No longer strong enough to draw his bow, the 81-year-old Riverview, Mich., resident wanted a special permit to allow him to use a crossbow. The state Department of Natural Resources reserves such permits for people with permanent disabilities. Andres doesn't qualify, so last month, he filed an age discrimination complaint against the DNR. More
