Congratulations to Ron Shaulis who shattered the previous Pennsylvania typical archery category buck record with a score of 185 4/8!
Posted by Pennsylvania Game Commission on Thursday, January 4, 2018
The buck grossed 193 3/8 inches and netted a record 185 4/8 inches. The previous record typical whitetail was tagged in 2004 and scored 178 2/8 inches.
Pennsylvania has often caught a bad wrap for high hunter densities and a lack of QDMA practices, but it appears it's beginning to change. The state has been making a noticeable effort to manage the deer herd, and last year, it produced a new non-typical record that scored 228 6/8 inches. It's clear Pennsylvania whitetail hunting is on the upward trend.
