MIDDLEBURY — On the first day of the recent Youth Hunting Weekend, 11-year-old Winston Forbes and his father were in the tree stand behind their Middlebury house.
“We sat there all day,” Winston said. “It was getting late.”
Finally, around 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 3, their patience paid off.
“It came walking out,” Winston recounted. “I shot it twice and then we gutted it out. The next day, we reported it.”
