Gun season for deer opens Saturday

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Gun season for deer opens Saturday and runs through Jan. 5.

According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, hunters may harvest one antlered buck per day until the statewide bag limit of three is reached, which includes deer harvested during archery and muzzleloader seasons. An antlered buck is a buck with antlers at least three inches long.

The bag limit for antlerless deer depends on where the deer is harvested

A Maryville based non-profit trains service dogs to help people with neurological disabilities.

Wilderwood Service Dogs work with everything from Autism to Alzheimer's.

The dogs take about 18-months and thousands of dollars to train.

A Lenoir City boy needs one. His name is Danny.

Like a lot of seven-year-olds, Danny Lewis enjoys sports.

"I play baseball, football, and basketball," he said.

And like a lot of little boys he has a lot of energy.

Loudon County helped a child get one step closer to getting a much-needed service dog.

Danny Lewis, 7, was recently diagnosed with Heller's Disease, an illness that causes dementia in a child.

Service dogs can cost around $12,000. The Lewis family has raised $5,000 as of now.

Today Lenoir City held a bake sale during their "City Street Festival," helping in that family's efforts.

The next fundraiser for Danny Lewis will be on October 27. This event is a pancake breakfast at the Lenoir City Ruritan Rotary Club.
