Todd Vandenberg, Wisconsin

On Oct. 20, 1994, Todd Vandenberg of Appleton, Wisconsin, arrowed this 130 7/8-inch P&Y trophy. The kill occurred in Shawano County, near the town of Split Rock. The 10-pointer's rack is highly symmetrical; in fact, it suffered only 3 4/8 inches in deductions from its gross score of 134 3/8. Todd estimates that the buck, which dressed out at 165 pounds, was 3 1/2 years old.
