Sullivan County Whitetail

Finding time to hunt isn’t always easy. For many of us, weekends are the only time we can get out in the woods. For John Nuzzi Jr. this was only half-true – John only has Sunday’s off so that means one day a week in the woods.

Work was slow and John’s brother offered to cover for him so he could go upstate to hunt. By 3:30pm John was in the stand  and after fifteen minutes he had action as three gobblers entered the clover plot he was hunting. About forty-five minutes later a small buck entered the field and worked his was within 10 yards of John’s stand. John was watching the buck feed when it suddenly looked behind as if something was coming.

John quickly got his binoculars up and started scanning the woods in the direction the young buck was staring when he suddenly saw a rack that caught his attention. Without hesitation, John grabbed his bow and waited for the buck to enter a shooting lane at 21 yards. With the buck broadside, John squeezed the trigger and heard a loud “smack” as the arrow hit its mark.

The adrenaline rush set in and John was shaking like a leaf. After forty minutes of waiting, John climbed down and went to look for his arrow. The arrow was covered with blood all the way to the vanes. The buck was only 50 yards from where John had lost sight of him. Congrats to John on a great buck!
