K.J. Houser takes a look at a double-barreled shotgun at Powder Horn Guns and Sporting Goods in Columbia on Tuesday. Houser and his friends have prepared months in advance for the opening of rifle season this Saturday by setting out salt and mineral blocks to attract the deer. This will be Houser's first deer season, and he hopes to get his first kill.
