Most weekdays start the same for 36-year-old Kim Acker of rural Waterford, Wisconsin. She wakes with her husband Kurt and sees him off to work, gets her two daughters Lauren, 7, and Mikayla, 5, ready for school and waits with them until their bus arrives. Kim, who has hunted for the past 15 years, keeps a pretty tight schedule while the girls are gone and Kurt is working—caring for the house and running errands are everyday requirements. When the day affords her a break, Kim wastes no time taking advantage and heads out to the yard to take a few shots with her Diamond Bow in case she decides to hunt that evening.
Kim Acker is a 36-year-old mother of two living in Waterford, WI with her husband Kurt. In addition to being a homemaker, she is also a hunter and has been for 15 years. Soon, once the score is confirmed, she will most likely have the biggest whitetail buck taken by a woman with a bow in the big-deer state of Wisconsin with a handsome 200-class buck she arrowed in September. She only claimed her trophy after a full year of searching for a shot and being tantalized by trail cam photos of the big brute. Here’s the full story of the hunt and everything that led up to it from Eugene Mancl.
