MIDDLEBURY — Senior guard Jack Daly agreed on Saturday after the Middlebury College men’s basketball team won the Panthers’ own season-opening tournament that the Panthers have a different look without graduated all-star guards Matt St. Amour and Jake Brown.

ADDISON COUNTY — Area deer hunters enjoyed the second best opening weekend of rifle season since 2005, bringing 242 bucks to an Addison County weigh station on this past Nov. 11 or 12.

That total of deer taken came just seven short of 2016’s opening weekend kill of 249. That total was the best opening weekend result since Vermont wildlife officials in 2005 banned the taking of spikehorn bucks during November’s 16-day rifle season, the most popular of the state’s deer hunting seasons.
