Gilliam bags first bear

Luke Gilliam, 13, of Buckingham County, started his hunting season off this year with an exciting kill. While deer hunting with his dad, a bear came into the opening. Luke made the kill with a muzzleloader. This is his first bear. He was hunting on a family farm in Prospect. Luke is the son of J.T. and Meagan Gilliam of Buckingham.
