Huge Iowa Non-Typical

Mon, October 13, 2014 (by way of their facebook page) is reporting somebody named Joe that films for them killed this monster free range buck. They are suggesting it might very well be the largest buck ever taken on video. I can believe that.

I am certain more information about this Iowa muzzleloader kill will be available soon. I did see where the H-2 measurement on the right side is 11&6/8’s.  It was green scored by a Boone and Crockett scorer at 258+ gross and 235 net.  It also had a typical frame over 221”!  This will certainly be one of the biggest killed in 2014.


Holy smokes that is a freaking beast of a whitetail.  I don’t think you would be able to keep me still long enough to snap a couple of pictures.  I don’t know how to do a cartwheel, but pretty sure id be doing them after shooting this buck!

I’de say Joe has one heck of a hunting spot…  That deer is a total monster.  That has more bone than anything i’ve seen in a long time.

Antler can be grown in ways that “score” better than that deer.  But as far as the amount of antler a deer can grow, that is the most ive ever seen on a wild deer.  Ive scored deer, been to deer shows in many states and have subscribed to north american whitetail for about 15 years.  Thats the most i have seen.

I agree Clint- Iowa MASSIVE!  I just love him!  Spectacular! OLD! appears to be a basic 12pt with 3 HUGE abnormals! A 221” 12 pt frame is GIANT!

Wow! Big buck! I didn’t know there was an early muzzleloader season in Iowa.  That would a good time to hunt there.
