Iowa's World-Record Buck!

Iowa's World-Record Buck!

When 15-year-old hunter Tony Lovstuen of Albia pulled the trigger on a giant whitetail Sept. 29th, it sent shock waves through the deer-hunting world. After three years of near-legendary status, Iowa's "Walking World Record" buck had finally fallen. And you can learn all the details in this month's issue of Iowa Game & Fish magazine.

The monstrous trophy is the biggest buck ever from Iowa, as well as a new world record by muzzleloader. But most remarkably, this giant whitetail is also the highest-scoring buck ever killed by any hunter, anywhere! With a Boone and Crockett score of 319 4/8, its rack easily surpasses the score of any previous hunter-taken whitetail. The massive antlers include 38 scorable points.

Iowa Game & Fish magazine now bring its readers the first photos of the new record-setting trophy, along with the amazing saga of the three-year hunt. In its January 2004 issue, now on newsstands across the state, Iowa Game & Fish reveals never-before-published photos of the new record and the behind-the-scenes details of the Iowa family that spent years pursuing it.


In four pages of special coverage, readers will discover all the facts about the remarkable whitetail from Albia. And stay tuned, because you can find even more coverage of the giant buck in the upcoming February issue of Iowa Game & Fish.
