HUNTING -- More than 100,000 hunters were expected to be in the field last weekend for the opening of Washington's modern firearms deer hunting season, according to the Department of Fish and Wildlife. 

Adam Lynn of Tacoma was among those out and in position for Sunday's glorious sunrise over Lincoln County. He came within 50 yards of a nice mule deer buck, but couldn't get a clear shot.   

Presumably the buck is still out there today, and so is Adam.
