Don't know if it's been posted already but saw this was shot in Iowa yesterday.



Estimate it to score 190-230

I don't know if my old heart could take it if I saw one that big.

Well... that's a hoss for sure. Could definitely be a bow world record. But in these days of pen raised protein feed bucks, I'd like to know the full story.

From some of the comments on it, sounds like it was free range down the road from an outfitter

Wow. Congrats to Austin on this toad! Here's the story so far from F&S:

Field & Stream posted 3 hrs ago ·
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

A ton of mass(50"+???) on that buck, long beams and good spread with enough tine length to get over 200" maybe even 210". Don't see 230 but he is huge no doubt. Deducts will hurt him a bit on net.

STXranchman, you are an outfitter correct? When you price a deer as an outfitter do take into consideration typical vs non typical? Would a 200+ price bracket include a deer like this?

Not an outfitter anymore. If an outfitter or ranch new they had a buck that big they would price it accordingly. Yes a huge typical would bring more money than a huge NT for me since I like typicals. Most any landowner would shoot the deer themselves and not even consider letting anyone else hunt it here in Texas LF.

That's what I was thinking and I would pay a lot more for that guy.. I am with you and like typical over non-typical. My exception to that is typical up top with a drop time and my dream ( same as everyone else) would be a double drop time.

I am just not that big of a fan of a drop-tine. I have killed 2 bucks with small ones-2" and 3.5". I prefer a big clean heavy mass typical like this one. This one is even more of my style since he is a 7x7 and those are rare. His mass is just unbelievable and long beams on top of it.
