Finally! My 1st Iowa buck!

9 posts in this topic

Shot this buck on December 8, 2007 at 1015. Watched him from sun up from my double bull blind until I finally put a stalk on him to close the distance to 50 yds. Put 2 slugs through his shoulder, and he dropped like a ton of bricks! Has a 17" inside spread, scored 139.75". Next time I will be bringing someone with me to help drag and load the deer into the truck....I'm still aching from the 130 yd drag up-hill from the bottom of a southern Iowa ravine, and getting him into the truck! Never been so glad to have a ratchet strap in the truck! iowadeer2007005nr1.jpgimg0750iv6.jpgiowadeer2007002gy1.jpg

Way to go! To be able to stalk him must have been exciting. I'd be proud of that.

Way to go on that buck! Quite a bit of mass on those beams.

Very nice deer, congrat's. Did you have frezing rain in the area you hunted? I was hunting southern Iowa as well that weekend (Mount Ayr area) and we had to hunt in the freezing rain and sleet the entire weekend.

By the time the freezing rain/sleet started I was already home, and had the buck hung in the garage.

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

        +1 It can get real nasty real quick out there.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
