Last night at 9:06, I was outside looking at the raccoons in the orchard and I heard 3 very loud, and 2 not as loud, gun shots ring out close to where I live on Whaletown Rd. They were loud enough to cause concern for being out there, not knowing from which direction they were coming from. Sound is hard to follow but it couldn't have been further away than the log dump and may have been much closer. Spotlighting Deer? Shooting at night is illegal, isn't it? Considering how far a round can go, it could easily be sent into a populated area. Whoever did this, STOP IT. If you are the person that did this, or know of the person, please know you are putting people and wildlife in danger. I don't know much about the gun laws because I don't have one. I'm sure hunting at night, in a populated area, is not allowed.
