PHOTO: Hunters gather at Granite State Outdoor Show

From left, Paul Sweetser, of Waterbury, Vermont, and Lane Benoit, a master tracker from Ducksbury, Vermont, sit at their booth during the Granite State Outdoor Show which kicked off Friday and goes until Sunday at the Grappone Center. Benoit comes from a line of hunters. His grandfather Leo started hunting for food and passed his knowledge to his son Larry, who then passed it on to his sons Lane, Lanny and Shane. Lane's father, who was known as Mr. Whitetail, is a famous hunter who has graced the pages of outdoor magazines around the world. At 88 years-old he shot his final White Tail deer, a 13 point buck in Wisconsin. "I saw the buck but let him go to dad," Lane said. The two were hunting partners for the last four years of Larry's life until he passed away last October.
