Orange County Eight Pointer

Earlier this year, Salvatore Prestigiacomo purchased property in Orange County with the intentions of creating a hunting club for family and friends. Sal wanted to manage the land to become a whitetail heaven, but after years of hunting on Long Island exclusively, Sal was reluctant to take the bow upstate because he didn’t think he would see the same quality of whitetails the he normally saw in Long Island.

On November 4th, 2012 Sal was hunting his property in Orange County when a brute showed up. The buck was headed towards Sal, but stopped at 40-yards because something just wasn’t right. As the buck turned to walk away, Sal had an opening that would give him a 44-yard shot. With the buck slightly quartering away, Sal took the shot and the arrow hit its mark.  The big 8-pointer was comparable to what Sal was used to seeing on Long Island and he said, “I am extremely proud of this buck because it represents a great beginning of what I hope to be many years of hunting with my family and friends in Orange County, New York!”

Congrats to Sal on a great buck and lots of luck in building your whitetail paradise!

The changes to the Suffolk County deer hunting seasons and permit requirements are summarized as follows:

• Extends the regular (bowhunting) season for deer in Suffolk County through January 31;
• Expands the special firearms season for deer in Suffolk County to run from the first Sunday in January (January 4) through January 31 including weekends. The 2015 firearms deer season in Suffolk County will begin Sunday, January 4 and continue until January 31;
• Clarifies the Town permit requirements, landowner permission requirements and legal implements for the special firearms season. The adopted regulations also include a provision waiving the Town Permit requirement in any town which by local law has waived the town permit requirement. However, this aspect will not take effect before next season (January 2016);
• Increases permit quotas for each town to reflect current deer management needs and allow for additional access opportunities on state land.

What does a can of whipped cream have in common with a bucket of paint? They both look awesome when shot in slow motion.
