Driving Mr. Lee

Driving Mr. Lee

By Jill J. Easton

Not every good deed goes punished. Being neighborly has its advantages. Tom Ross helps “Mr. Lee” Simms, an older across-the-road neighbor, with his hay, cows and fences, and he even takes him to the doctor. In return for his kindness, he gets to hunt the 40-acre pasture a mere 560 yards from his front door. The pasture, ringed by trees,... READ MORE

Grunting Counteracts ‘Tink’ and Miss

By Rory Leszczynski

I’d planned to go hunting after work on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011.

Night of the Living Dead

By Ed Waite

Chris Miraglia’s Stark County 18-pointer is No. 7 among Ohio’s bow-taken Semi-irregulars. Chris Miraglia looked like one of George Romero’s zombies when he staggered into his suburban Ohio home on Oct. 24, 2011. Had it not been for the goofy grin underneath his bloody and creviced brow, his wife might’ve screamed. She almost... READ MORE
