According to all reports, deer hunters and available deer could set some numerical records this year. Although some hunts are now actually over or ongoing, the firearms season is when we could see approximately 500,000 hunters take to the woods and fields. And that happens Nov. 15 to Nov. 30.
With the arrival of crisp fall days and the occasional snowfall, many local residents are eager to get out hunting. While many hunters would be satisfied to see something worth shooting, four Carson City men enjoy the thrill of the shoot — on film.
