Agent Comments

What a remarkable opportunity to be able to purchase at auction one of the most notable farms in not only the Midwest but the entire nation.  In 2003 Tony Lovstuen harvested what was the largest non-typical buck ever killed by a hunter near Albia, Iowa and now one of the most well know bucks in America.  The deer has been written about more than any other whitetail killed in Iowa and been the subject of multiple artists.  

This deer before its harvest was aptly named "Iowa's Walking World Record" by North American Whitetail Magazine.  The Lovstuen buck was originally given a 60-day score of 319 4/8ths inches and was eventually panel scored at 307 5/8ths inches making it the largest deer ever recorded by Boone & Crockett Club that was taken by a hunter.  

This farm is as good as it gets in the whitetail world with proven genetics and the auction offers you an opportunity to own a real piece of whitetail history.
