The spotlight cut through the night and caught the silhouette and shining eyes of the deer in the distance. Glen Wampler rested his Styr Mannlicher rifle on the half-opened window of the pickup truck. He was a dead shot from this range and he sighted through the high-powered scope. Seconds passed as Wampler waited for the deer to turn. Then he squeezed the trigger. The deer fell with a bullet to the head.

Chefs found themselves without dinner guests when a fund-raising event for a Washington shelter for the homeless was canceled because of last-minute contract problems.
