Milo Hanson Buck: Looking Back

Stan Potts and Gordon Whittington look back on the record-breaking Milo Hanson Buck. When Hanson's 213 5/8-inch Boone & Crockett world record typical buck was shot on the morning of Nov. 23, 1993, it was the biggest whitetail news to come along in a long time. The monster buck, taken by rifle near Hanson's residence outside Biggar, Saskatchewan, was clearly bigger than James Jordan's 206 1/8-incher from Wisconsin, which had long held the world record. As the Jordan buck had been shot way back in 1914 — and rarely seriously challenged — for a new buck to shatter his record by 7 4/8 inches was indeed the stuff of headlines.
