RUNYON DISTRIBUTING CO. Asbury, WV - 645-6555 i , The 1988 deer season has come to an end and for a lot of hunters, it was a successful season. I saw more deer this year than any other that I have hunted. I did get my buck this year. On Thanks- giving Day, my dad and I went on a late morning hunt and ran across a nice 6-point buck. One local hunter, Junior Rooker took a buck on Cold Knob that had an antler spread of almost 31 inches and the buck was past his prime. Two other big bucks that I know of were taken on Cold Knob. James Eagle and Kevin Williams both got huge bucks in that area. I imagine that you ladies are tired of all the deer tales and would like to hear about something else. The Christmas shopping season is now in full swing and I thought you might like to have some ideas about what to get the sportsman in the family. Remington has a nice gift pack this year. It has six boxes of 22 rifle shells and a Remington pocket knife. These pocket knives are hard to find and any sportsman would be proud to have one. Bushnell also has a nice package. It consists of a pair of 7 by 35 binoculars, shooting glasses and a headset radio. Some- thing that is always needed at home and the hunting camp is a good sharpening stone. E..Z. has a sharp- ening stone that uses diamond chips to sharpen your knife. I have used these stones and they really work great. If you already have a mini mag light, you know how great they are. Mini mag has an addition to their line now which consists of a mini- ature mag light on a key chain. It is a neat gift that works great. If the deer hunter in your family got his buck, he could probably use a buck horn mounting kit. If you hunt the James Crews rough country and do a lot of four wheeling, a well padded hard gun case could really protect your rifle and scope. If you have a knife col- lector in the family, both Buck and Old Timer make some great knives which carry lifetime guarantees. There are a lot of other gifts to choose from; some of which are gloves, backpacks, rifle slings, and gun cleaning kits. On the Local Front Here are some pictures of the area's successful deer hunters. John O'Dell is shown with a 16 point buck. Pete Fogus has a buck that appeared to have a rack inside a rack. The buck had 21 points. Cecil Reynolds has a tall racked 9 point. Josh Hunter has a wide horned 8 point. Junior Rooker has his buck which had a spread of almost 31 inches.
