The Story Behind Foggy Morning Trio—Wild Turkey…
Fifteen-year-old Tony Lovstuen of Albia certainly had the thrill of a lifetime when he took a world record buck during Iowa youth season on September 29, 2003. Larry had first captured this infamous buck in his 2002 release, Big Country Bucks, which was based on the buck’s 2000-2001 rack. One of his sheds also appeared in the previous whitetail painting, Big Timber Bucks.
The "Foggy Morning" series consists of three paintings, each one featuring a different species of wildlife. All three paintings show some sign of this world record buck. Foggy Morning Trio—Wild Turkey, the first image in the “Foggy Morning” series features three mature gobblers on the edge of a spring woods as the rising sun burns through an early morning fog. An old Farmall tractor and a few aging buildings are all that remain of a farmer’s forgotten dreams. May apples are thriving and trees are just starting to leaf out. A giant shed antler from the 2001-2002 rack of Tony’s world record buck dwarfs the May apples. A lost turkey call provides a perch for a house wren while a pair of bluebirds search for a nest sight and a pair of Canada geese wing past.
