George Anderson of Washington County asks: I sighted-in my shotgun two years ago. I take good care of it, clean it and keep it stored in a closet. Should I spend the money and time to go to the range again this year? Outdoors Girl can image a beautiful buck, 8-point rack, walking directly toward your tree stand. You can hardly believe your eyes when it stops just 25 yards off and turns slightly to give you a clean shot. Visions of venison filling your freezer dance in your head.
