Down Memory Lane

Bernard Payne enjoyed hunting with a bow and arrows. When this photo was taken, it was the first deer killed by a Washington archer. He bagged the deer south of Washington along Crooked Creek in the timber. His first arrow missed. His second found the deer in its side. It continued moving through the area for about 125 feet. Payne said the arrow cut a rib on both sides of the young buck. The other photo is of Payne in his Navy uniform. He served in the Atlantic from 1941-44. The family's dog's name was Jigs.
