Perhaps, apple worms are a deer's way of eating protein.

Tri-County Fish & Wildlife Area will host a youth rabbit hunt on Saturday, Oct. 19.

The hunt is from 8 a.m. to noon. Children will be partnered with an experienced hunter, and various beagle dog handlers will guide the youth hunters as they trail rabbits through fields and woods.

If your child is interested in participating, or for more information, contact Don LeCount at (574) 551-1461 or dlecount@embarqmail.com, or call Tri-County FWA at (574) 834-4461.

LeCount is the man who sold me Daisy.

Should the Pacers match Portland's offer sheet to center Roy Hibbert?

Yes, Hibbert is important to the team and the community
No, four years and $58 million is too much
Not sure, I like Hibbert but think the money could be better spent elsewhere
