This is the No. 1 typical whitetail of all-time. The Hanson buck. It’s legend to all those who spend time thinking about giant whitetails. And if you’ve never heard of this deer, you’ve got some catching up to do. It’s a stud.

It sounds pretty obvious and even quirky to say, but this deer truly has it all. Tine length? Check. Spread and beam length? Yep. Mass? Pretty solid on that front, too. I don’t think you can fault this deer. And if you do, go the heck on somewhere. This buck is a legend.

Here we have Milo Hanson recap and tell his story from start to finish. He exlains what happened from the time he learned of the deer to when he killed it. And then he explains how life changed. Check out this insider video from two and a half decades ago when the legendary buck fell.
