BuckTracker: Mystery Monster
By Scott Bestul
It is certainly no mystery that Iowa produces some gargantuan bucks each fall. The buck posted here, however, is something of an enigma…at least to me. I’ve seen several photos of this tremendous whitetail in recent weeks, all with the same title; "Lockridge Monster." No details as to who the hunter is, where in Iowa it was taken, or what the beast might score. Some who’ve forwarded the pics to me claim the woman in the photo is the lucky shooter, but thus far no one can confirm this.
So once again I’m asking for help. If you know any details about this amazing buck, please chime in. I’d love to hear more about it!
On a personal note, I am leaving tomorrow for my first whitetail hunt in Alabama. Looking forward to not only seeing this wonderful state, but also to escaping another cold front that threatens the upper Midwest. Call me a wimp, I don’t care!
