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.

Great job Wayne and State of Wisconsin DNR.

The photo however...deer hunters need some standard pose or angle of the shot so we can compare one photo to the next. That photo is useless in trying to gauge the size of the deer.

Wow, nice buck. Buckhunter i agree about the pose. I do it with fish all the time. The further from your body you hold it, the larger it looks. That's a hog though.

Wow--that's a big rack. Can't really blame the guy for using that old fisherman's trick of holding it at arms length.

That is a very NICE buck! No doubt its big, but I agree with "buckhunter". Be a man about it, if you know you have a huge buck hold it up to your chest and show everyone how big it really is! Quit with these "arms length", "camera angle" tricks! Or is it because your ashamed of it, why are you trying to make it look bigger than it really is? They just lose a little respect in my book, like all they care about is who comes out of the woods with the biggest deer! A Far cry from what hunting really is, or should be!

Incredible Deer. Congrats. Camera Angle or not that is one heck of a buck. Especially for the opener. Congrats again

I like the camera angle - the field dressed weight, inside spread measurement and estimated score give you objective measurements that help you get a handle on just how big that monster was.

For a deer like this, taking a photo from this angle to emphasize the size of the antlers seems appropriate.

If anything, I think the typical trophy pose with the hunter kneeling down behind the deer with a hand on each antler gets tired. Playing with the camera angle simply to make the deer, or fish, look bigger is pretty lame - but I do like to see photos where the photographer shows some creativity in composing the photo.

What? This deer was shot in Wisconsin? The same Wisconsin that everybody says the management system stinks,too many deer shot off and no bucks?? Guess this one is just a fluke huh? By the way Buckhunter- most mens fingers are about 1 inch wide so as long as you can see one on the rack as you do in this picture its pretty easy to figure size out. Not that size is really important. Nice buck!!!

Nice buck, I could cre less about how it is being held. If you shoot a deer like that get some pictures in the field and stop takeing them in the back of the truck....

EVEN IF DOES NOT BECOME NEW STATE RECORD IT IS STILL A FABULOUS DEER. AS FOR ALL THOSE COMMENTS ABOUT CAMERA ANGLES AND POOR PICTUES I SAY WAIT UNTIL YOU GET AN ENORMUS BUCK AND TAKE YOUR PICTURES. I WOULD THINK THAT MR. SHUMACHER WAS STILL SHAKING WHEN THE PHOTOS WERE TAKEN

If all was done legally, and I haven't heard anything to say it wasn't, a big congratulations to the lucky hunter!

I will go out on a limb and say this buck does not beat the Decker buck, but will score about 230 (just a hunch). Tines and mass don't look as long or massive as some non-typical giants, but I sure wouldn't pass him up!

A local paper called this buck a 'freak of nature'. Not true at all! This is just a mature whitetail buck that got a chance to express his genetic potential! We are blessed with great genetics in this state and should expect to see more bucks like this. The fact that we are shooting more is a testament to all the landowners practicing 'QDM', more so than anything that the DNR has done. 'LET HIM GO- LET HIM GROW!'
