Local sportsmen share success stories

Tom Guziec of Dunkirk has been successfully hunting deer with a bow since the early 1990's, but on Monday evening he tagged his biggest one so far, a 9-point buck which weighs an estimated 160 pounds. Guziec was hunting from a 15-foot tree stand over a creek bottom when he noticed several does come out followed by the buck. He momentarily lost sight of the buck who soon materialized, heading towards an active scrape. Guziec drew back his Mathew's bow and sent a 2-blade rage extreme mechanical broadhead through the lungs at 25 yards. The efficient dart dropped the buck at 40 yards in full view of the hunter. Guziec then called his friends Rick and Chris Johnson, who brought the four-wheeler to drag out the bruiser. Chris Johnson presented Guziec with a shed antler he had found last winter that was a perfect match for Tom's buck. Guziec divulged that he does not use scent, rather he protects his scent free clothing and rubber boots from offending odors, and uses the wind direction to his advantage. He plans on having the deer mounted at West Wind.
