Deer photographs

The Cumberland Times-

News will use photographs of

hunters with deer that they

harvested during the 2013

seasons. There is no charge.

Most photos will be held

and used in the January

issue of Rod & Gun. Photos

will be accepted through

Dec. 20. Some of the photos

will appear on the Sunday

Outdoors page.

There is a limit of one photograph

per hunter. Preferred

are photos that show

the hunter and deer at the

scene of the kill, with the

deer displayed in an acceptable

fashion and the hunter

wearing orange during the

seasons when it is required.

Include a telephone number,

hunter’s name and place

of residence, location of kill

and information about the

deer. For youth hunters,

include the age.
