|Bob Decker's Field and Stream Buck|
Here is the famous Field and Stream video shot by Scott Kirkpatrick of Buffalo County Outfitters. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EvgkoxBvS8
Throughout the fall the word continued to spread and this buck became an internet sensation. Bob Decker, of Eau Claire, was excited to hunt his lease in Buffalo County long before reports of this buck began to circulate, but his excitement increased when he heard reports that the Field and Stream video had been shot close to his lease.
Decker never would have thought his dreams would come true on a November 1 morning when he came face to face with this trophy buck. A well placed shot landed Bob Decker is the record books with a new Wisconsin Non-Typical buck with a score of 233 2/8.
His new state record wouldn't last long. In the fall of 2009, Wayne Schumacher of Fond du Lac, shot a new state record buck. Decker may not have the bragging rights of having the record, but the buck he harvested is one of the most well know bucks to have ever lived. Congratulations to Bob Decker.
