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.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
