American-Hunter.com fan Mark Woller from Merrill, Wisconsin sent in this great story about his hunt for a giant 12 point Wisconsin buck. Congrats to Mark for taking a true monster buck of a lifetime!

After scouting an area for a couple weeks I set up along a field edge by a natural funnel area where I had spotted several bucks.  I had an 8 pt. on my cam which was no monster but seamed to be the biggest at the time.  After a couple days of hunting and several small bucks. I checked my pics again and there he was.  Three days after the first viewing I was in my stand as a storm started to roll in. It was around 45 min. before dark when it started to rain. I looked out to the west and saw a flash of lightning in the distance so I decided I should get going when a deer showed up in front of me. A few seconds later he picked up his head and there he was, a buck of a lifetime. After picking my jaw off the ground and getting my self settled down a little, I waited for the opportunity to get a shot. After what seamed like forever ( probably only 15 min or less) he gave me the shot. It started raining harder now, so I went to check for blood and found the arrow  right away and it was full of blood confirming a good shot. I started looking for a blood trail right away hoping the rain wouldn’t wash it away. After searching for several minutes I finally found some blood leading into the brush. Luckily he only went about 30 yards and I was blessed with this awesome trophy. He’s a typical 12 point with 20 ½’ spread, it officially scored 182 6/8 net Boone and Crockett.  A new Marathon county WI typical record and 168 3/8 BTR a new Buckmasters perfect typical  record whitetail for Wisconsin.
