Taking the largest typical whitetail buck with a bow is often referred to as the ‘holy grail’ of hunting throughout the state of Wisconsin. A mere four years ago it would fall to a Dunn county bowhunter by the name of Barry Rose. That incredible buck would net 187 2/8 total inches!
Move over Mister Rose!
Taken on November 2nd, 2010 the new top buck has officially netted 187 5/8 total inches - just 3/8 an inch bigger than Barry Rose’s 2006 giant! This buck was taken by bowhunter Brian Inda of Wautoma while bowhunting his new lease near Wild Rose, Wisconsin.
Brian’s brother, Chris Inda, actually picked up the shed antlers from this buck in the spring of 2009. Those sheds ended up scoring 192 inches! It was this pick-up by Chris that would ultimately sway the two brothers along with a friend to seek a lease agreement with someone nearby. An old Christmas tree farm would eventually do the trick!
Brian’s buck has 12 scorable points, with 5 on the right side and 7 on the left. The buck also maintains an inside spread of 22 inches! And the longest tine length was the left side G2 which taped out at 14 7/8! The buck was estimated to be 7 ½ years old.
The staff of Bowhunting.Com would like to extend great big congratulations to Brian (and his friends) on this once in a lifetime whitetail trophy. We hope you’ll have many more bucks to stand over Brian. Congrats again!
