My Dad’s friend, Bryan Bazak, is a great musician and a fine piano player. He’s also a really good archery shot and experienced Bowhunter. We call him “Baze”. He hunts deer in Pennsylvania and in Ohio. He shot this nice 8-point Buck with his bow in Eastern Ohio 2 years ago. Baze hunts on leased property. The buck scored about 140 with an 18-inch spread.
Baze also hunts with his friend, Rob Nagy, in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Nagy is an avid Bowhunter and keeps a close watch on his local deer population. Baze hunted with Rob during the early bow season without success. He returned after the New Year to hunt the Philly Burbs again. On January 5 the weather was bitter cold. Baze was in his blind all day and saw no deer.
After lunch Rob called him to say he spotted a big buck at their other blind location. Rob said, “Get over here now”. So, Baze quickly packed up his archery gear and drove to the new spot. It was late afternoon when he got in the blind with three hours left to hunt. The sun was going down, the temperature was near zero and time was running out. Finally the Buck, the one Rob spotted earlier, came out of the timber. Baze made a solid hit at 15 yards with his Hoyt Maxxis compound. He used a Gold Tip arrow with a Spitfire 100 grain broadhead. The heavy buck had 8 points and scored approximately 128 and had an 18-inch spread. Below is a photo of Rob’s 2017 Buck.
Rob Nagy lives and hunts in Montgomery County and this past fall he shot this monster 10 point. The high-wide buck scored 147 inches with a inside spread of 21.5 inches. Rob was hunting from a tree stand and shot the Trophy at 8 yards with a Hoyt Vectrix bow.
Rob used a Gold Tip arrow with a Spitfire 100 grain broadhead. Rob also was able to capture the shot sequence on video, all by himself. That’s’ really hard to do, to shoot video of your buck, while shooting your Buck with your bow. Great Hunt Rob! I hope I can do that next year, if I’m lucky. I’ll add Rob’s video into my next Video Deer Hunting report.
