Empire State Buck, Chris Athanitis

This beautiful 10-point buck was harvested at dusk in Hancock, NY on Thanksgiving Day! I have a great deal to be thankful for and this buck was "icing on the cake." Big thanks to my buddy George Venetoklis whose generosity and hospitality allowed me to harvest such a beautiful trophy off his land. -- Chris Athanitis

Congrats on a great buck Chris!
