Possible New Record Wisconsin Buck
Paul Keller’s Huge Wisconsin Whitetail
On Sept. 18 a hunter named Paul Keller near Big Falls, Wisconsin shot a buck that has been initially scored at 244″ with 27 score-able points!
“First of all, we would like to send a thanks to everyone in the hunting community for all of your positive comments and support, you should all be proud. We do apologize for any misconceptions that were first posted. 244″ was an unofficial rough gross green score.” Obviously it’s impossible to title this or any whitetail as a “new state record” hours after it was harvested, this information was an assumption and it did not come from us (with today’s technology who knows).
We recently had the chance to meet with an official Boone & Crockett certified measurer to get an idea of what caliber whitetail this will be. The net green score is 229 2/8″ but obviously this is not official until the 60 day drying period is over, at that time a B&C panel will be formed and an official score and the record status will be determined. This true giant will most likely be in the top 5 for the “All Time” Wisconsin non-typical whitetail archery category and will be the new #1 non-typical whitetail archery record for Waupaca Co.”
The story and details will be in an upcoming issue of North American Whitetail.
