Hunting special edition wants to tell your story

The weather is changing as the evenings become cooler and the mornings have a definite feel of fall in the air.

These changes can only mean one thing: Hunting season is just around the corner.

Again this year, The Western News staff will publish our annual Hunting Guide. 

Staff has done some brainstorming on how to make it better than ever, and we have decided to accomplish this, we will write about you, the sportsman hunters.

So, in the coming weeks, we want to hear about that most memorable hunting expedition.

Maybe, it was an elk hunt in which you tracked the big bull for two miles. Or maybe it was the one where it snowed massively, and you and your fellow campers found it difficult to get home.

Possibly, it was memorable for other reasons, like the last time you hunted with your father or your brother. 

Our point is: Everyone has a story to tell, and we want to hear yours and relay it to our readers.

Please submit your most memorable hunting tale — limited to 300 words — and we’ll publish the best ones in the Hunting Guide. Please get ALL entries and photographs to us at by 5 p.m. Sept. 10.

The Hunting Guide will appear as a special section in the Sept. 28 edition.
