When confronted with 2 bucks in 10 seconds, local hunters let instinct take over

Modern firearm season opened Saturday for hunters of Washington’s most popular game animal — the buck deer. Check the state’s hunting regulations pamphlet, but for the most part, Central Washington has opened up for any white-tailed bucks and three-point minimum muley.

Deer, spry and wild, spook easily around these parts any time of year, especially now, as men and women in hunter’s orange will testify. And even though conditions look good for this fall’s big game hunting, the odds of two hunters knocking down two bucks side-by-side are slim. Those rare and strange stories are what local outdoorsman Henry Wright loves about the pursuit of wild game.
