Holy Buck! Basom, NY Hunter 
Bags Biggest Deer of His Career
Photo by Kaczmarek's
The 179 inch 11 point buck everyone was hoping to bag this season will soon be on Kaczmarkek's wall. Although he's not sure which wall. "I've taken over an entire room with mounts and euro skulls and have now moved into our living room. I'm running out of space."

Kaczmarek has plenty of time to find space while the deer is being mounted at Wandering Trails Taxidermy by Ashley. "I found her a few years ago and she does a wonderful job but it'll take several months before it's finished."

It's not just deer Kaczmarkek hunts either. He was lucky enough to bring down a bear on a friend's property. "He said it was the first bear he'd seen in 4 years and I shot him after only two hours of sitting in the stand."

Kaczmarek has dozens of New York State Archery Record Book bucks but says it's about more than just the kill for him. "It's the thrill of the chase, catching one on camera. I'm fully invested times ten."

So how will Kaczmarkek top this year's deer? "I thought the same thing in 2004 when I shot one that was 167 inches but it happened. I'll just keep trying until it happens again."
