VERMONT — Young hunters participating in Vermont’s youth deer hunt this weekend, Nov. 7 and 8, are encouraged to help Department of Fish & Wildlife biologists by reporting their deer at one of 23 biological reporting stations around the state.
Two of those stations are in Addison County — at Buxton’s Country Store on Main Street in Orwell and at Vermont Field Sports on Route 7 South in Middlebury.
My girls learned a little something about hard work this past weekend, and maybe I learned something, too.
Halloween has come and gone.
Once again, I ate too much candy.

Well, I buy candy. “Just in case.”
