EDITOR'S NOTE: Chris and Stephanie Potter have come to know a whitetail buck they call Jackson, who visits a feeder near their rural Two Harbors home. Chris wrote this essay as Minnesota's firearms deer season approaches. My wife, Stephanie, and I have always been somewhat private people, but we feel the need to share our story to give a magnificent buck a fair chance this deer season.

My friend Owen Oxley is a stubborn cuss. The Minneapolis advertising executive has had his ups and downs. When young British kids were being sent to the U.S. in 1940 to avoid the blitz, little Owen Oxley's parents sent him to live with his English grandparents on the Dover coast!

Later, he wrote a wonderful book based on the experience of living with his mortician English grandfather on the Dover coast.

More than 200 years ago when fur traders and voyageurs traveled the St. Croix River, historians say the landscapes they saw probably looked similar to what we see today.
