The Salem Statesman Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Matt McColly of Salem, Ore., pulled off a never-been-done hunting quadfecta during the recent controlled-hunt tag drawings. Given the preference points that McColly and his dad, Dennis, had piled up, their deer tags in the Silvies Unit and the elk tags in the Murderer's Creek Unit were pretty much a lock.
