Deer of the Day: Brian Wiese's 156-Inch Nebraska Buck

dod_brian_wiese_fHunter: Brian Wiese

Location: Knox County, Neb.

Method: Archery

Score: 156



Brian Wiese had great success this season when he took this impressive 156-inch buck out of northeast Nebraska late last November.


Hunting on a day that wasn't particularly ideal, Wiese took his chances hunting an "odd-ball" spot where he had only received pictures of deer twice during the previous six weeks despite his two core stands being overall more productive throughout the season.


However, with the warmer temperatures, a steady 15 to 20 mile per hour wind and a light rain, the less than ideal conditions turned out to be just what Wiese needed to take this buck. In his 31 previous hunts this season, Wiese wasn't even afforded an opportunity on a mature buck. Maybe it was arriving late without a solid idea of what was around, or a hunter's intuition, but choosing this stand turned out to be to right choice as he arrowed the brute at just ten yards.

With 24-inch main beams, 36 inches of mass and 11 scoreable points — there were also two broken G4's that were not scoreable — Wiese's 156-inch buck is a good sign that populations in the state are recovering nicely from the 2012 EHD outbreak.
