Deer of the Day - A Wisconsin Woodlot Buck, Brian Korfmacher

Deer of the Day - A Wisconsin Woodlot Buck, Brian Korfmacher

You just never know where a big buck might take up residence, regardless of how urbanized an area is. Brian Korfmacher learned that first hand when hunting a small woodlot near his home in Cottage Grove, WI -- which sits just to the east the metropolitan area of Madison, WI -- Brian was able to drop this fantastic buck that scored 210 1/8 inches non-typical, which is our Deer of the Day.

Korfmacher saw the buck his first night of hunting, but it was too dark to take a shot. The next day, the dedicated hunter spent 11 hours in the stand, waiting/hoping/praying the buck would return -- and he did at last light.

"Some friends of mine had sheds from him from past years so I have three of his sheds from over the years. We think he is 9 or 10 years old. It's amazing an animal can live that long around a major city with lots of highways around us. I feel truly blessed and still can't believe I killed such a awesome animal," shared Brian.

Believe it Brian and congratulations on a wonderful buck!
