This buck was submitted by Julio Santiago who is a co-founder of Outdoors Addiction. Julio took this Jersey trophy during 2008 early fall bow season in Millstone, NJ. The buck has a rough score of 125" and dressed 145 pounds. Julio was able to capture this hunt on video by himself and you will all be able to view this hunt when they publish their second hunting DVD in 2009. Julio thanks for sharing this great Jersey buck on Jersey Whitetails. You the man.
Powder Season by Scott Sprague. The buck scored 140" and
dressed 90 pounds. We hunted this buck during the fall bow
but he was no where to be found. This is the biggest set of bone
I have put my hands on shot in Waretown. The buck scored within
the top five biggest taken with a black powder rifle for Ocean County
as of 1992.
This photo was submitted by Stephen Fox. This is a hunting story of first blood. Stephen Fox had taken this young youth hunter for his hunting test and he had passed all three. On November 15th 2008 they had decided to take Dylan bow hunting in their zone 49 stand. While they were walking into the stand they saw this buck 60 yards away. Stephen stated to Dylan who was also with his father that they were going to get this buck. This buck was 60 yards away from them under the stand. They slowly stalked up with 20 yards and they had the wind in their face and the buck was looking away. Dylans father was also there to video the hunt and when he was given the signal to grunt, his father grunted and that got the buck to turn around and get moving to them. Dylan got a 16 yards double lung shot on this guy while on the ground. The buck ran 50 yards or so and expired. This is Dylans first buck which has a green score of 110 inches and dressed 163 pounds. Great job Dylan on a great hunt from ground level. This hunt is going to be hard to beat.
These two photos were Submitted by Kyle Osiecki a 17 year veteran of the Jersey woods. Kyle took this NJ buck during the 2008 NJ 6-day firearm season. Kyle was sitting in his stand Tuesday of the gun week and he saw this buck about 150 yards away chasing some doe. As luck would have it the buck made his way to kyle and he was able to put this guy down with one shot with his Remington 12ga super mag. Kyle thought the buck was a 4 or 6 pointer but ended up being a nice 9 pointer which dressed 148 pounds taken in zone 23. Nice buck Kyle thanks for sharing.

During permit bow in zone 13 I harvested this main frame 8 with 4 additional smaller and broken tines, this old guy was rutting hard.
It was an afternoon hunt. I had been in the stand for a few hours. It was getting dark and the few smaller deer that were hanging around me for most of the day had left and I thought my day was over. I decided to sit down, as I was standing in case any shooters came my way. I heard some footsteps crunching the leaves off to my right, I figured it was another immature yearling, boy was I wrong. As I glanced over to my right I noticed what I thought was the largest deer I had ever seen while hunting barely 6 yards away. I said to myself, "you moron, you are going to blow a shot at the biggest deer of your life because you are messing around on your phone."
I had to act fast so I threw my phone in my vest, he heard something, looked up and trotted away to about 16 yards. He stopped, turned so that he was quartering towards me, I drew back and let it fly. I heard that familiar sound and watched him run away and pile up about 80 yards away. I called my Dad and my hunting buddies in a panic, they kept me calm. I waited 20 plus minutes, got down, of course this time I couldn't find my light. I used my phone to look around the spot where I thought I shot him, I was pretty certain I made a good hit but it was dark and it was the biggest deer I had come across while hunting so there was a little doubt and there it was a pool of blood. I have never been so excited in my entire life.
I waited for my Dad and his friend Brian to come with a few flashlights. We tracked the blood trail for a liitle while, we found my arrow covered in good blood, completely in tact, not far away from the arrow the old boy was laying just beyond a log. When I layed my hands on those antlers I was happier than I can ever remember being. A lifetime goal of mine has been accomplished. I am a bowhunter for life.
Great Story and Great Hunt. Thanks for sharing.
Bill Tallman took the nice Jersey 9 pointer at 6 yards while hunting on the ground. This buck ended the regular fall bow season. Another great Jersey deer.
This buck was submitted by Angelo. He had emailed me early in the hunting season about filming deer. He made it clear he was going out to get it done. Well Angelo got it done with this sweet jersey buck. Looks like a real nice 8 pointer.
