Man, 86, still shoots true

Bill Stein, 86, of Franklin Township, harvested a 7-point buck on opening day at his family's property.

At 86, a Franklin Township man has pursued a healthy outdoor lifestyle, which yielded a 7-point buck on the opening day of this year's rifle season.

An avid hunter for more than 81 years, Bill Stein said he harvested the buck on his family's property while out hunting with his grandson. The two were in separate tree stands on the property.

He said he saw the first signs of activity around 11 a.m.

“First, a fox came running across, then six does came across,” Stein said. “I figured well, there's gotta be a buck behind them.”
