Wisconsin Buck Could Threaten State Non-Typ Record
By Scott Bestul
Badger State bowhunters have gotten off to a blistering start since their September 19th archery opener, shooting some whopper bucks. But its unlikely many will top the giant shot by Wayne Schumacher last weekend. Schumacher was hunting in Fond du Lac county when he arrowed a buck with 30 scoreable points. The antlers sported a 20-1/2” inside spread and the buck field dressed at 225 pounds.
The Wisconsin state record for bow killed non-typicals was set last fall by Eau Claire bowhunter Bob Decker when he shot “The Field & Stream Buck”, a giant that scored 231”, B&C. While Schumacher will have to wait 60 days before his buck’s rack can be officially measured the buzz is that this buck is pushing the 250” mark. I’ll post further details about this incredible deer as they become available.
