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. ┬áThe 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!

Had a crazy weekend of gear breaking on my hunt last week. Had a second hub on my Primos Double Bull blind crack, ripped a hole in the roof with one of the poles that came out and then found a tree had fallen on my Lone Wolf Portable Treestands. The stand looked okay so I hunted the morning but when I went to take the stand off the tree I realized the top was all bent. Anyone else ever have a tree fall on their stand? (4 photos) ...
