World-Record Iowa Whitetail?
We know. We've seen our share of would-be world records, too. So nobody is telling Milo Hanson to move over. But take a good look at this colossus. Our friend Tony Sehman at Thunder Ridge Outfitters in Southern Iowa (iowadeerhunts.com) tipped us off to this enormous buck, taken just down the road from him in Truro, by a young hunter named Austin Pontier. Early rumors put the deer anywhere from the high 190s to 230 gross. If it proves nearly as big as it looks in the photo, Pontier's buck will have at least a shot at Mell Johnson's 51-year-old archery, typical world record of 204-4/8. Maybe even Hanson's all-time mark. Maybe. Stay tuned. —Scott Bestul, whitetails editor #RutReporters2016
