PERRY COUNTY, Pa. (WPMT) It’s been a little over a month since a trophy class whitetail deer was killed on the evening of September 29 in Perry County.

The large buck had a live weight of 229 pounds, and the antlers had a ‘green score’ of 157 0/8 inches. It had been shot in the neck, and was approximately 145 yards from the road.

Wildlife Conservation Officer Kevin Anderson is investigating the incident. He stated “We’ve been following up several leads, but nothing has panned out yet.” He’s asking for whatever help the citizens of the area can provide.

A reward is available through the Game Commission for information leading to the successful apprehension and prosecution of those involved in this senseless killing. An additional reward is also being offered by an anonymous donor.

Anyone with information should call the Southcentral Region of the Pennsylvania Game Commission at (814) 643-1831.
