iowa giant

We love scanned photographs of old giant whitetails. Thanks to Mike C. for posting this one to our BIG DEER Facebook page:

“How would u like to have this giant Iowa buck hanging in ur garage after season? This monster, a rare 7×7 typical, had a 210-inch frame and a final net of 196 4/8. Killed by Michael Edle in SE Iowa in 1989, an extreme cold year (like the winter just passed). If it wasn’t for a couple of sticker points this deer would likely have been Iowa’s state record. 

I checked the B&C records. Shot 25 years ago, the amazing Edle Buck is #4 in Iowa and the 46th biggest typical ever shot in North America.
