Dale Hainer - man in old photo with a deer

This is OOD Field Editor Dale Hainer’s first deer. He shot it on Nov. 8, 1975, at the age of 15. Although his father didn’t normally approve of Dale missing school (even when he was sick), his father insisted that Dale take two weeks off to go hunting.

The deer was shot in Nipissing Village and Dale recalls that the deer were on the move two days before the big storm that year — the same storm that sank the SS Edmund Fitzgerald.
