Young sisters bag trophy bucks on consecutive days

Two small Rockingham County sisters pulled off the rare feat of bagging bucks on back-to-back days last weekend.

Laurel League, a 9-year-old 4th-grade student at Summerfield Elementary School, dropped a heavy-racked 8-pointer Nov. 10, 2018, while hunting from a box blind with her grandfather, Art “Pops” League.

The next day her sister Lila, a 7-year-old second-grader at the same school, popped a 10-pointer while hunting with her dad, Eric League.



The best in ducks

North Carolina’s best waterfowl hunting for ducks, geese, swans is in the extreme eastern portions of the state, and public-land opportunities reflect that situation. The region serves migrating birds along the Atlantic Flyway every season.
