Morning Star, September 21, 1997, pg. 25

Soon the hunting season will be upon us, and the annual pilgrimage of local hunters into area woods will begin. It seems to me that there must be an even greater deer population this year, as I always see them in the fields and roads, constantly now. I am surprised that one of our area roads hasn’t been named “Deer Run,” or something like that.

A hundred years ago in 1896, a men’s organization called the “Albion Rod and Gun Club” was in existence, and promoted the sport of hunting. From our Historical Notebook this week we present a photograph of club members, holding their rifles, ready for the hunt.
