Did you make it into the woods for deer season? It has always been a family affair. Take Jason Edwards and his father Dave (not the former school teacher, though they grew up near each other in Columbus). Dave, now 70, bagged his 8-point buck two weeks ago in New York while Jason, who works in Dr. Lund’s office on Mead Avenue, bagged his biggest buck, a 7-pointer, on Saturday's opening day. “We do everything together, we love to hunt and fish," admitted Dave who started hunting when he was 12.
There were plenty more successful father-sons like Bruce Jaquith (10 point) and son Craig (8 point).
Brothers Nick and Caleb Marrs bagged bucks, 8 and 6 points, respectively.
Kevin Amy “had the pleasure of being in the woods” with his three sons and two grandsons.
