WAUPUN, WI (WTAQ) - A deer hunter from Waupun has set a new state record for a typical buck shot by a bow and arrow.
Dusty Gerrits shot the deer on November 6th in Fond du Lac County.
The rack dried for the required 60 days. And then a scoring panel measured the 12-point rack at 189-and-three-eighths’ inches. That broke the old mark by 1.75 inches, set by Brian Inda near Wild Rose in 2010.
The record for a non-typical buck is also held in Fond du Lac County. Wayne Schumacher shot that deer in 2009, with a score of 243.75 inches.
