Carson Makuski’s most memorable deer hunt ended up with him shooting an eight-point buck.

Carson Makuski harvested an eight-point buck in Portage County in the 2015 gun deer season.

“I was sitting a couple years ago against a tree on some public land deer hunting one of the last days of rifle season,” said Makuski.

He didn’t have much hope and dozed off.

“I woke up to branches breaking only to see a nice buck maybe all of 4 yards in front of me just staring at me,” Makuski said. “I ended up getting him.”

Makuski has been hunting 13 years, and has gotten two bigger bucks since but said this is his most memorable hunt.
