WAUPUN - A deer hunter from Waupun has set a new state record for a typical buck shot by a bow-and-arrow.

Dusty Gerrits shot the deer on November sixth in Fond du Lac County. The rack dried for the required 60 days. And then a scoring panel measured the 12-point rack at 189-and-three-eighths' inches. That broke the old mark by one-and-three-quarter inches, set by Brian Inda near Wild Rose in 2010.

The record for a non-typical buck is also held in Fond du Lac County. Wayne Schumacher shot that deer in 2009, with a score of 243-and-three-quarter inches.
