If ever there’s a competition for the most bittersweet hunting season, Chris Parsons’
2008 campaign should rank right up there.
Parsons, 36, of South Charleston, bagged trophy bucks on consecutive weekends during
West Virginia’s archery season. But before the triumphant hunter could lay hands on
the kills, he lost them – one to a pack of coyotes and one to a trio of black bears!
Parsons’ four-word synopsis of those two Saturdays in October is a masterpiece of
understatement. “It was pretty weird,” he said.
