Outdoors Insider, with Dale Sunderlin: Hunting, fishing, trapping licenses on sale


Trinity Triumph

Trinity Stevens a 12-year-old young lady who attends Braden Junior High School and is in the 7th grade, harvested her first deer this past archery season.  

It began like this.

Her hunt started out the evening of Sept. 29, 2013 with her and her dad, Loren Stevens, suiting up for the hunt. They put on their camo and sprayed down with Scent Away Advanced Formula and Apples. They arrived at their tree stand around 5:30 p.m. and climbed into their 2-person ladder stand.

Happy hour

It was a picture-perfect day sunny with very little wind. At about 6 p.m., Trinity heard a noise behind her. She slowly looked back over my left shoulder and saw a buck. He was being very cautious as he walked around to her left, smelling the air and looking around. Trinity was very excited about the fact that she spotted him before Dad noticed him.

The waiting game

Trinity remained very still waiting for him to finally come in front of her and turn broadside. He slowly approached and finally turned broadside, she placed her crossbow sights on him and took her shot; it felt good... he was only out at about 15 yards.

Great shot

Come to find out it was a good shot, in fact it was a great shot the buck only went 20 yards and dropped. Now not only was her buck tag filled but also she won a bet with her grandpa over who would get the first deer, sorry grandpa you loose.

Well-rounded young lady

Just so you don’t think Trinity is one of the ol’ redneck gals she has several other hobbies that make her a well-rounded young lady. Some of those hobbies being, ballet, tap, swimming, tennis, theater, fishing, drawing, reading, and playing her harp.

  • Tribe Not quite enough

    Although the Indians are still very much mathematically alive in the race for a postseason berth, they continue not to look like a playoff team. And when they have put a run together, they haven’t been able to maintain the habit of playing winning baseball.
