Archery buck is Wisconsin state record

Green Bay, Wis. — The Wisconsin Buck and Bear Club officially recognized a 2014 Dodge County buck as the state’s new typical archery record.

Six WBBC scorers met Saturday, Dec. 13, at Cabela’s in Green Bay to tape a 13-point buck shot by Adam Hupf on Oct. 11. WBBC declined to release further information on Hupf and how the buck was killed.

What is known is that after the 60-day drying time, the buck reached a typical score of 2004⁄8 (gross) and 1916⁄8 (net) inches.

The new state record had an 184⁄8-inch inside spread, and 434⁄8 inches of circumference.

This means that a Fond du Lac County buck arrowed by Dusty Gerrits in November of 2012 held the state archery typical record for just two years. Gerrits’ buck netted 1897⁄8 inches and grossed 2001⁄8 inches.

Doing the scoring were WBBC members Mark Miller, Stan Zirbel, Marlin Laidlaw, Earl Conradt, Andy Sternagel, and Bucky Ihlenfeldt.
