Forget Cyber Monday. The real bargain for many on Monday was bagging a buck.
Monday was the first day of the 14-day deer rifle season in Pennsylvania.
"I took the shot, and he went down," said second-year hunter Derek Hosier, who could be an endangered species.
"I didn't see a hunter until 11 this morning," said hunter Joel Kobal.
Long-time hunters said hunters are a dying breed. Forty-year hunter Ed Snyder said the number he sees in the woods dwindles every season.
"I don't think a lot of young people want to get involved with hunting anymore," Synder said.
Some 750,000 hunters are expected to take to the woods over the next two weeks. The Lehigh Valley is one of the few places where plenty of doe license are still available, according to the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
Fact or perception, the floor of Hartman's Butcher Shop in New Tripoli is crammed with field data indicating hunting in the Lehigh Valley is alive and well.
Deer hunting runs until December 8.
Pennsylvania is closer to complying with a federal law that requires people to prove they are legal U.S. residents in order for their driver's licenses to be valid for federal purposes.Read More »
