Local hunter gets buck with bow

December 8, 1999

With deer season well under way, local hunters have had some success.

Local hunter Tommy Harrington shot a buck on Halloween. He said he had been sitting in an area timber for several hours when he shot the deer.

He shot the deer with a Browning bow from an API deer stand. Harrington didn't find the deer immediately because a group of dogs ran the deer about half a mile.

By the time he found the carcass several days later, only the head and skeleton remained because coyotes had picked it clean.

Because he didn't find the deer immediately, Harrington contacted the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and was informed he had to use his deer tag if he wanted to keep the rack.

Harrington said deer populations in the area were plentiful.
