Wi giant 2013

This is the first true monster of the 2013 season, shot last week in southeastern Wisconsin. Photos of the incredible buck were first posted on the Whale-Tales Archery  website.

Word is the rack rough-scored 244” and could be the new state archery record. That’s all we know for now.

Funny, I was up in that part of the world in July, talking with and filming Wisconsin bowhunters for an episode of BIG DEER TV to air this October. I remember standing with the current No. 1 non-typical bow buck–Wayne Schumacher’s 243 6/8” monster—and saying into the camera, “This is some of the best big buck country in America…Wayne’s record could stand for another 10 years, or it could fall this year.” That statement was spot on.

Whether this buck turns out to be the new record or not, it is obviously an amazing animal, congrats to the hunter.
