SHERBURNE – Salvo Magro, President of the Outdoor Adventure Team and 2008 Sherburne-Earlville graduate, remembered his favorite hunt in detail.
“The sun was starting to set, the buck was at 36 yards, I drew my bow,” he said. “I settled my nerves and squeezed the trigger.”
The buck was a 140 inch, eight pointer that Magro killed in Ohio for the TV show “Fear No Evil,” which will air on the Outdoor Channel in October.
This kill is just one of many that Magro has orchestrated through his videography work, his time with the Outdoor Adventure Team (based in Sherburne) and the guided hunts he offers.
Magro was first inspired when his dad, Vinny Magro, took him turkey hunting. He shot his first bird when he was eight years old and remembers looking back at the camera and saying, “Dad, this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.”
In high school Magro started the Outdoor Adventure Team (OAT) with fellow hunters. The team includes Magro, Wheeler Brunschmid, Trevor Bays, Nino Magro, Vinny Magro, Matt Layman, Danny Hicks and Bill Schillet.
