Did you see the thirty pointer? Wayne Schumacher of Fond du Lac still finds it hard to believe, but a 30-point buck walked under his tree stand while he was bow hunting. While registering the deer, he retold how he was able to bag it just before dusk Sunday. “I knew this was one time you don’t want to jerk the bow,” said Schumacher, whose aim was true, and brought down the buck west of Fond du Lac.
Shumacher says it took him a few minutes to get his composure before he was able to climb down and check out the trophy buck. For the record it weighed 225 pounds and had a spread of 20 ½ inches.
While Schumacher was gathering his gear, his tree his brother started counting points. Several counts later Schumacher says the official consensus is it was a 30-point buck. He says he wants to have it mounted, but may hold out to see if someone like Cabela’s would like to offer a full-body mount. Schumacher registered the buck at Dutch’s Trading Post in Fond du Lac on Monday.
