Very few can argue with the results from Wisconsin over the past 2 whitetail seasons. It seems nearly every week another possible GIANT buck is taken by gun or bow in this, the famed, dairy state. Below you will find what could honestly become the world's largest typical buck ever! No joke.
Could it be? A new world record whitetail buck!?
The above 240 pound, 12 point typical, is being called the new world record whitetail, replacing Milo Hanson's 1993 taking. Shot on November 5th, 2009, hunter, Michael Gregoire took this incredible buck while hunting his brothers farm near Sheboygan. The 4 1/2 year old buck is said to gross 217 5/8 by an official Boone and Crockett scorer. It is currently waiting the mandatory 60 day drying period before it's final score is tallied.
After the 60 day drying period is up, the Boone and Crockett club will randomly select a panel of judges for this buck's official scoring. All Michael can do now is await their verdict.
This whitetail buck needs to net the already famed Hanson trophy of 213 5/8, taken with rifle in the Saskatchewan province. The Wisconsin typical record is 206 1/8 inches.
Keep your eye on Bowhunting.Com. We will officially make the announcement as soon as we catch word on this possible new world record typical. Our congratulations to hunter, Michael Gregoire on this amazing buck.
