Alexandria resident Dustin Tomoson is proof that persistence often pays off when it comes to sitting in the deer blind.

Tomoson hunted the opening day of firearms season on November 9 at some land around Morris and saw seven deer, a fox and a coyote but nothing that came close enough to shoot with his slug gun.


After wiping the sleep from his eyes, he was back in the stand about a half hour before shooting light on Sunday morning.
