Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club Officially Scores New Wisconsin State Record Non-Typical Archery Buck

Submitted by David Friedman, CARBON, Inc. & Bucky Ihlenfeldt-WBBC


Richfield, Wisconsin (November 17, 2013)

The Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club has officially panel-scored a new state record, non-typical whitetail buck that was taken on September 18, 2013 in Waukesha County, Wisconsin by a bow hunter, Jim Baker.


The Richfield, Wisconsin Cabela’s store was the host to a panel of six measurers from the Wisconsin Buck and Bear Club who convened Sunday afternoon to officially panel-score, following a mandatory 60-day drying period. The measurers included:

Ron Strauss - Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club
Gerry Wegner - Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club, Pope & Young 

Zachary Randall - Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club
Eli Randall - Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club, Pope & Young, Boone & Crockett
Brian Tessman - Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club, Pope & Young, Boone & Crockett

                  Travis Mattison - Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club & Boone & Crockett


Surpassing the former non-typical state-record archery buck taken in 2009 by Wayne Schumacher, which scored 243 6/8”, the “Jim Baker Buck” has a total of 28 measureable points, a 19 7/8” inside spread, and 66 6/8” of abnormal points, and achieved an official non-typical score of 260 5/8” gross and 249 5/8” net scorable inches, and is now officially recognized as the current Wisconsin state record for non-typical bucks in the archery records. 


The “Jim Baker Buck” taken in Waukesha County Wisconsin is another example of why Wisconsin continues to be the number one spot in North America for trophy whitetails. Wisconsin currently ranks number one in Boone & Crockett and Pope & Young record entries.


It’s exciting not only for the hunter and the Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club, but also for the entire state of Wisconsin to continue to see the increased quality of deer taken in Wisconsin as people “Let ‘em Go, Let ‘em Grow”.
