Sportsmen have faced challenging hunting conditions through the first week of hunting season. Unseasonable temperatures, rain and high winds have made finding buck like this one, shot by Andy Tumas of Pittsburgh, difficult. Andy took the nine-point in Keating Township near his father’s house. The buck’s rack was over 20 inches wide. He was sitting in a tree stand on the opening morning when this monster came into the range of his .270. Deer rifle season runs through next Saturday.
