From this profile I wrote for realtree.com a few years ago:
Lisa Brunner is one of the best big-buck huntresses in America. I first became acquainted with this lady in 2006, back when I was blogging for Outdoor Life. Out of the blue her husband, Jeff, sent me an email that read:
“My wife Lisa shot this buck on the gun opener in Wisconsin. He scored 185 gross and 179 5/8 net; a 6×6 with one sticker. Big time massive, nearly 7” mass between the G2 and G3.
I was impressed and made it a point to keep up with this lady, and I have. Since then I have blogged several times about Lisa and her hunting exploits. Like the 156-inch buck she stalked and shot on the ground with her bow a few years ago. And the great picture below is her bow kill from just last year.
Looking forward to meeting Lisa next week and bringing her story to life on BIG DEER TV later this fall. One thing she told me years ago has stuck with me: “I milked cows one summer to buy my first bow when I turned 16.”
That’s our kind of people.
I remember the blog. Will be nice to hear her history.
Living in Buffalo County Sure does help.
Lisa sure is an accomplished hunter! I wish I could get my girlfriend to enjoy hunting as much as I do. She loves shooting the bow I got her this summer, but she isn’t sure she’ll be able to release an arrow at a “cute” deer she says. Does anyone have a good way of convincing a woman to kill an animal she thinks is cute? haha
What else is there to do to earn money in WI? Guess she could have been a cheese taster.
