Deer of the Day - Georgia WMA Buck, Dennis Narucki

Georgia hunter Dennis Narucki hadn't even made it to his stand when he able to punch his tag on this fine 11-point buck taken during a special four-day hunt in the Pine Log WMA near White, Georgia.

After getting off work 1:45 p.m., Narucki had signed into the WMA and was in the process of applying doe scent to a couple of bushes near his stand when he kicked up this 11 point buck, that took off straight away from him. Narucki watched the buck stop 75 yards away and look back, and eventually the big deer crossed into a small opening allowing Narucki a shot with his .22-250.

The shot to the neck dropped the buck in its tracks.

"I was in the woods for a total of five minutes and didn't even make it to my tree stand," shared Narucki, "It was the largest buck taken in the four-day Pine Log WMA hunt. You don't get that lucky very often."


No, you certainly don't! Congrats on a great buck Dennis!
