MONROE - The gray fog settled in Saturday morning and didn't lift until the early evening, making for dismal hunting conditions for the first day of the traditional gun-deer season. Accurate deer harvest numbers will not be available until after the nine-day gun season is over, but on Saturday afternoon there were a few lucky hunters who chanced to see a couple bucks wandering through the dense fog. Matt Flood, Albany, said he was in a tree stand in the Albany Wildlife Area.
