Joe Nuzzolillo, Alabama

One of the pluses of hunting deer in Alabama is the fact that the rut occurs a couple of months later there than in most of the rest of North America. Many avid hunters take advantage of this fact to get in some late-season action.

Marengo County, in the southwestern part of Alabama, is among those areas where the bucks normally become more active in January. In a single week in Jan. 1992, Joe Nuzzolillo of Metairie, Louisiana, got both of these trophies in a Marengo County pasture marked with numerous scrapes and rubs. Lying adjacent to the pasture was an oat field.

The 10-pointer to Joe's right was shot from that stand at 8:15 a.m. on Jan. 12; the other buck, also a 10-pointer, was shot there at 7:30 a.m. on Jan. 18.
