Hunters look at pix on door at Lincoln Gen Store_9652.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — Despite a fairly slow opening weekend, a strong finish made Addison County’s rifle deer season the second best in the past decade with 571 bucks taken. That total also put the county’s overall numbers ahead of the record pace set in 2017.

Poet's corner: A sacred circle, on the other side

We travel through Native lands

Passports to be shown

sunglasses off

Area orchards battled extreme weather; harvest still fruitful

Posted on November 19, 2018 |
By Christopher Ross
