Mossy Oak Pro Staffers Greg and Marty Gill of Fairbury Living a Bow Hunter’s Fantasy
Bob McNally |Visit Mossy Oak Website | Reproduced with permission

Marty Gill of Fairbury NebraskaWith 30 years of successful marriage behind them, and a pair of grown children to be proud of, Marty and Greg Gill pretty much have it all in their rural hometown of Fairbury, located in Southeast Nebraska. But after the pair of record bucks they tagged last year with their bows, they are floating in a hunter’s happy dream.

Greg has been a bow hunter for over 30 years, and Marty not much less. Both have collected an impressive number of whitetails, some huge, like the pair of 150-inch class deer Marty has to her credit, and the 70+ animals Greg has collected with his bow – all from Nebraska.

But 2008 was special for both of these hard-hunting Mossy Oak pro staffers.

Marty was first to hit pay dirt, and it happened early one afternoon, just minutes after an October hunt began. It was hot with temperatures in the 80s, so the Gills chose a pair of water hole stands near a milo field. Marty got in her stand at 5:40 p.m., and only 15 minutes into her hunt she called Greg on their walkie talkies saying she arrowed a nice buck.
The buck Marty had taken had come to water with a pair of 120-inch animals almost as soon as she got in her stand.  She patiently waited for a good chance at the bigger buck as the trio of deer milled around the water hole.  The best buck stopped to drink broadside at 27 yards, and Marty drew her 44-pound pound bow, and sent a 100-grain Muzzy broadhead through its chest.  She heard the 10-point buck fall 80 yards away.  Greg joined Marty, and they collected her 133 3/8s buck.

Greg hunted hard following Marty’s success, but couldn’t close the deal on a good buck until late November.  The day prior to the state’s firearms deer season, Greg had a nice 8-point buck within bow range, but the deer was on a trail concealed by brush and no shot could be taken.

Greg Gill of Fairbury NebraskaFrustrated, Greg later cut two shooting lanes in the brush, then left the area hoping the buck would survive the surge of gun hunters, and he might get a chance again with his bow.  It happened on Thanksgiving Day.
With temperatures mild and in the 40s, Greg climbed into the tree stand where he saw the 8-pointer at 2 p.m.  Not much happened until just after 4 p.m., when Greg decided to rattle and grunt call.  Just like that a good buck was coming down the same trail where Greg had seen the 8-point.  Greg stood, came to full draw, and when the buck crossed one of the open shooting lanes Greg had cut in the brush, the hunter touched his arrow release.

The shaft dashed across 32 yards and passed completely through the buck.  The 100-gran Muzzy "MX-4" did its job quickly, and the deer ran only 90 yards before falling.
Greg called Marty on their 2-way radios, and soon the husband-and-wife team were admiring the buck, which gross scored at 147 7/8s.  It was one of the greatest Thanksgiving memories of all time for these deserving Mossy Oak pro staffers.

In the Photos: Marty and Greg Gill represent a hard-charging husband-and-wife Mossy Oak pro staff bow hunting team in Southeast Nebraska that collectively has taken about 100 whitetails over the last 30 years.  Some have been heavy-horn animals in the 150-inch range, and in October Marty used her archery tournament prowess successfully when she tagged a 10-point, 133+  buck (top). Greg Gill, second from the top, with his great 2008 Thanksgiving Day buck from Southeast Nebraska.
