Hurteau: Minnesota Record Buck Certified
By Dave Hurteau
It’s official: The 32-Point Camp Ripley buck has set a new Minnesota archery record.
From The Annondale Advocate:
Scott O'Konek's 32-point buck, which racked up so much excitement this fall with what many speculated to be the largest non-typical rack ever taken by archery in Minnesota, is finally where it belongs - hanging on his wall.
And decorating a simple table beneath it are certificates from the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association, Pope and Young and the Minnesota Deer Classic officially proclaiming it a state record-breaker.
Its official score of 2273/8 breaks the previous record of 2263/8 set in 2008 by Ben Spanjers, O'Konek said. Prior to that, the record was 225 set in 1989.
