Kimberly Hondrum traveled all the way from her home in Martinez to Boone's Bay, Alaska, during the summer for an opportunity to enjoy the region's annual salmon run, which provided her with this nice King. Meanwhile, 11-year-old Hunter Rhodes, of Martinez, always knew he would get his first deer someday, but he never dreamed it would be such a big one. He took this nice 10-pointer last weekend during Georgia's muzzle loader season. He was hunting with his dad, Emmett Rhodes, over a food plot in south Richmond County. The regular firearms season for deer opened Saturday.
