Wisconsin Bowhunters Take Possible State Record and Velvet Booner

By Scott Bestul

The 2013 Badger State archery season is less than two weeks old, and bowhunters have already taken a pair of incredible bucks. While it's no secret that Wisconsin is one of the top trophy producers in the country (the Badger State ranks first in the Pope & Young listings with 8,478 total entries; Illinois is second with 6,372), the two whitetails pictured here are truly outstanding.

Word on the street is that the huge nontypical was shot in Waukesha County and is rumored to green-score 244 inches. The hunter remains unnamed and details are few at this point. But if that score is legit, the buck could threaten the state record for nontypical bow kills, which was taken by Wayne Shumacher, who arrowed the 243-6/8-inch giant in Fond du Lac county during the 2009 season. 

The second buck, a velvet-covered 10-point, was shot by Colton Coulton Seifert during the first week of the archery season. Seifert, a member of the Bluff Country Boys outdoor television show, killed the 172 177-inch typical near the town of Nelson, a known trophy hotspot in Wisconsin's famed Buffalo County. Wisconsin's archery season opens mid-September every year, and most bucks have been in hard antler for many days, which makes this velvet gross-Booner a truly special trophy.

We'll bring you further details on these deer as they become available—or if you know more, please share.

I doubt the top buck was taken with the bow in the picture. No sight, stabilizer or peep. Looks like it was pulled off the shelf for a photo-op. Still a nice buck.

T-minus 5 days until we hear about one of these being from a farm or poached.

I shot the one in velvet, captured the kill with two different camera angles, all self filmed. Very very happy hunter! Congrats to the other guy featured in the article.

2 great bucks.
1st) reminds of the racks you see from game farms where the 1.5 year olds often carry these racks. If legit this is a terrific non typical. congrats!

2nd) beautiful typical; congrats and it takes a lot of skill to self film and shoot this buck. great job Coulton!
