The next next buck on our list is found dead head from Monroe County, WI. This buck scored a whopping 193 3/8 inches, edging just ahead of the Gallup buck. The owner of this head is Gil Pizarro Hernandez and the 11 point buck was found back in 2009.
3. The Joe Haske Buck
The number 3 buck on the top 5 typical bucks of Wisconsin list was harvested in Wood County, Wisconsin and scored a whopping 197 5/8 inches. Once again this buck was harvested with a gun and was taken in the year 1945. The Joe Haske buck is a giant and is a true typical trophy of the badger state.
2. Keith Brossard Buck
Shot in 1999, the Keith Brossard buck scores 197 6/8 and finds itself at number 2 on the list of Wisconsin Typical Bucks just barely edging out Haske’s 1945 giant. The Keith Brossard buck was shot in Kenosha County, Wisconsin with a gun and had 17 points.
1. The James Jordan Buck
If there was ever such a thing as a perfect 10 pointer or a perfect buck in general, then this is it. With just over 3 inches of deductions on the Boone and Crockett scoring system, this bruiser scored an incredible 206 1/8 inches! When it was shot in 1914, it held the spot as the number 1 typical in the world until Milo Hanson’s buck was shot in 1993. Many hunters and sportsmen actually believe that the James Jordan buck should be the number one buck in the world and it does look more impressive than Hanson’s. However, based on the current Boone and Crockett scoring system, it is the number 2 and is still a magnificent animal nonetheless.
