MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - West Virginia's two-week, bucks-only gun hunting season begins today and state wildlife officials are predicting a slightly higher deer kill this year, given an abundance of food for the animals. Most regions have good acorn crops, which means deer will be widely distributed and less visible in open fields, according to the state Division of Natural Resources. Although deer will move into lower elevations for food like apples - a common crop in the Eastern Panhandle - acorns are a more nutritional food source for deer, said Dick Pharr, owner of Spark's Sport Center in Martinsburg.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, PA.- For nearly 70 years, members of the Rouzerville Fish & Game Association have tried to be good neighbors to those living around their 37-acre site off Mentzer Gap Road. Now, they're worried that their neighbors might not be good to them. Last week, four of the association's members - Woody Stoner, Sidney Fitz, Reno Eyler and Joe Hess - met at the clubhouse to talk about their fears that new people moving into housing developments being built around the fish and game association property won't want to live near a place where there's a bunch of guys shooting guns.
