Huge Buck near Dunbar hunted by Professionals?

Anybody hear about this? Apparently, there is a monstrous buck hanging around the Dunbar Borough Elementary School, Pechins grocery store, and Cellurales tree nursery, and there are so called professionals with video crews trying to hunt it. I dismissed it a bunch of bull, until I saw about a hundred posted signs go up prior to bow season on grounds that locals have been hunting since I was in that elementary school, and Monday evening, I saw the trucks with a bunch of sponsor stickers and decals on it, and everyone is talking. Seems this buck is a giant. Don't know if it's true or not, and if it is, makes me wonder if this is a good or bad thing.

I have friends and family who hunt and own property all around there and no one has heard a thing. My buddies wife teaches at the school and said she would ask around. There are always decent buck around there but people hunt that area PRETTY regurlarly.

I think "professional" is one who gets paid to hunt. Ability is NOT a prerequisite for the most part.

Ask RobertG.... formerly known on here as Thrillbilly. I'm sure you know him. If anybody would know, he would know. I'm assuming you are talking about the "old" Pechins area, and not the new location at Laurel Mall ?

I drive by that property twice a day and have some dealings with it. The reason the posters went up is that Fay Penn bought the property this past summer and is building another business park. I have not seen one hunter this whole season (bow and gun, Fay Penn does not allow any hunting).

Fleroo, I haven't seen Rob in a few years. And no, it's the new Pechins by the Mall. Always big deer in there.

ICARE, not a problem for me, but for some guys that have been hunting there all there life, it ruins it. These Professional hunters (One who makes a living out of it) come in and slap a chunk of money down to obtain exclusive rights to the ground, just to eliminate the competition, so they can receive a nice paycheck for killing a huge buck on film.
