Wisconsin Archery Typical Record Confirmed

A white-tailed deer taken by a bowhunter this fall in Dodge County has been scored as the Wisconsin archery record for typical bucks.

The 13-pointer was shot on Oct. 11 by Adam Hupf of Beaver Dam. After the mandatory 60-day drying period, the rack was officially panel-scored Saturday in Green Bay by members of the Wisconsin Buck & Bear Club.
