Wisconsin Piebald Buck, Jeremy Farina

Wisconsin Piebald Buck, Jeremy Farina

I shot this in Shawano County in Wisconsin on November 12th with my bow. We have photos of him from the past three years, starting when he was a 8 pointer so we think he is 4 or 5 1/2 years old.

We hunt 50 acres that my grandpa owned, actually were my family roots are from over 100 years ago. Sadly he passed in April; he is the man who taught me to hunt.

On the 12th, I sat in my stand that over looked a food plot when three does came out, and I could hear grunting behind them. I wasn't sure if it was the piebald as all I could initially see were horns. As the buck started chasing does, I grunted when he got in to a shooting lane I'd cut. I had about two seconds to shoot, and only realized it was him about one second before i released my arrow.

I found a lot of blood, and due to the snow on the ground I could see his trail. After waiting a hour and a half we looked and found him very easily, and when I saw it was the piebald I immediately starting screaming.


As I went back to get the ATV to load him up, I looked up and thanked my grandfather for teaching me to hunt and keeping the land so my family could hunt it, and started crying tears of joy. He knew how hard we worked to get him, it was a shame he wasn't there to share in my joy.


We didn't gut him right away because I'm getting a full body mount. Getting it out of the woods was tough, but after gutting him, he weighed 182 pounds, has a 17-inch spread and 10 scoreable points. -- Jeremy Farina

Congrats on a fantastic buck Jeremy!
