Results are in from the 2011 big-game season
by Ron Kolodziej

According to figures released recently by the Department of Environmental Conservation, hunters in New York State harvested 228,350 deer and 1,258 bruins last season. The 2011 deer take varied less than one percent from the 2010 take statewide and outside the Adirondack region the bear harvest last season set new records, substantially exceeding previous record takes in central and western New York. In contrast, the bear take here in the Adirondack region dropped to a level not seen since 1998.

Some of the young whippersnapper diesels set too fast a pace for the 62-year-old steam engine. While they were hauling 790 somewhere between here and Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the boxes burned out.

Clay pigeons make elusive targets
By Dick Nelson
