Some records stand for decades at a time; others, no more than two years.
Over the past weekend, the Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club officially announced that Wisconsin bowhunter Adam Hupf's October 11, 2014 typical whitetail buck taken in Dodge County is a new archery state record.
Officials from the Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club, Pope and Young, and Boone & Crockett convened at the Green Bay, Wisc., Cabela's store to officially panel-score Hupf's buck following the mandatory 60-day drying period on December 13.
With a total of 13 measureable points, an 18 4/8-inches inside spread, and 43 4/8 inches of circumference, the Adam Hupf buck achieved an official typical score of 200 4/8 inches gross and 191 6/8 inches net.
The previous typical state record archery buck scored 189 7/8 inches, and was killed in 2012 by Dusty Gerrits.
