Iowa's World Record 38 point Buck

I don't know how many of you have heard about this but I think it gives us all hope.

"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.

I first saw this on the outdoor channel and they had the kid with the shoulder mount. I couldn't believe it. After the story was over they said that someone had broken into the kid's home and stole the trophy. My heart dropped. I feel so bad for the kid.

From the picture on the magazine front...the white tail deer antlers would be labeled as "atypical." They would have been a major attraction at Cabela's...if they had been added to their collection...except that Cabela's in KC only has mule deer antlers.
