New Wisconsin Non-Typical Archery State Record Named

According to a press release from Nov. 17, Wisconsin has a new non-typical archery state record whitetail on the books.

The Wisconsin Bear & Buck Club made the announcement after scoring Jim Baker's bow kill, which was taken on Sept. 18, 2013, in Waukesha County. The buck posted an official score of 249 5/8 inches, with 28 measurable points and a 19 7/8-inch inside spread. All told, the Baker buck had 66 6/8 inches of abnormal points, catapulting it past the previous state record set by Wayne Schumacher in 2009 (243 6/8).

As this most recent state record demonstrates, Wisconsin continues to be a powerhouse for whitetail trophy production in the U.S. Wisconsin leads the U.S. in Boone & Crockett and Pope & Young trophy production over the last decade, producing impressive bucks like Baker's and the Paul Keller buck.
