Many young hunters are successful in Addison County

ADDISON COUNTY —  Young hunters brought 110 deer to Addison County wildlife stations to be weighed after shooting them during 2018’s Youth Hunting Weekend, which fell on Nov. 3 and 4 this year.
That number exactly equaled 2017’s total, which was the second-best count for youth weekend in the past decade, trailing only the 124 taken in 2012.
Those numbers are contributing to what seems to be a solid overall start to 2018’s deer season, with numbers so far tracking closely with 2017, a season that ultimately proved to be the best overall since 2005, when laws changed to limit the types of bucks that hunters could shoot in rifle season.
The two biggest deer shot during Youth Hunting Weekend were both weighed at Buxton’s Store in Orwell. One topped 200 pounds: Carter Audet shot a 204-pound, seven-point buck in Orwell.
Jacob Kemp took down the next largest buck, a 186-pound, six-pointer he found in Whiting.
