For several weeks archer Bruce Barr Jr. of Burgettstown watched a particular deer in night photos taken by several trail cameras.
"I knew it was going to be hard getting a shot at him, at least until the rut," he said. "I had only seen one buck and because of the moon phases and warm weather, the deer seemed to be moving very late and very early, which typically happens every year unless it is cold out." On Oct. 17 the 11-point passed Barr's stand and turned broadside. It was taken with a Mathews Heli-m bow.
