The youth award went to Neil Symalla of Cold Spring, a 15-year old who showed tremendous restraint throughout the archery season. Symalla, a second-year hunter, passed on several marginal shots while waiting for a good one. He never scored. Later, during the rifle season, Symalla was leaving to hunt with his father, who noticed the youngster only had 5 cartridges. Symalla nixed a trip to a sport shop for more ammo, informing his dad that "if I don't take a running shot, I only need one shell." Symalla killed a nice buck that day…and has enough shells for four more years!
