Bob Decker 2008
Buffalo County, Wisconsin
January 6, 2009

The Field & Stream Buck?

UPDATE: 1/6/2009 Bob Decker's incredible buck is the new archery state record non-typical with an official Pope & Young score of 233-2/8, surpassing a buck taken with a bow in 1979 that scores 231-5/8.

Although first thought to be a possible new record typical, official P&Y scoring determined a number of non-typical points and the buck's highest score being in the non-typical category.

The B&C state record non-typical taken with a firearm scores 247-3/8 and was taken by Arnold N. Staisberg in 1998. Using the B&C scoring system, Pope & Young maintains the records for archery only trophies. Boone and Crockett accepts all legally taken trophies, as well as found or pick up trophies that meet or exceed the minimum entry score for each category. The B&C minimum for non-typical whitetail is 185. The P&Y minimum is 155.

Bob Decker of Eau Clarie, WI arrowed this giant in Buffalo County, the same county mentioned in the now famous Field & Stream video showing a huge buck in velvet reported to contend as the next World's Record typical. It is reported that this buck was taken a half-mile from where the live video was taken.

The standing B&C World's Record typical whitetail is the Milo Hanson Buck taken in Biggar, Saskatchewan in 1993. This buck scores 213-5/8 B&C. Further details as they are made available.
