We don’t have all the details in quite yet, but it appears that a lucky shed hunter from northern Wisconsin found these nontypical antlers near Rib Lake. That’s just outside of Wausau in the north-central part of the state. It’s an area where hunters see big bucks each year so it’s no surprise this giant lived there.
This buck’s rack has at least 19 scorable points and, allegedly, grosses more than 254 inches. Wow! If the buck lives until this hunting season, he could easily grow a rack that would challenge to be the Wisconsin state record nontypical.
The current Wisconsin pickup record is a 33-point buck scoring 237 7/8, found in Brown County in 1914 by Lewis Bissell. So this mysterious rack could shatter a record that has stood for almost 100 years!
Stay tuned! We will bring further updates on this incredibly huge buck as more details become available.
