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.

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.

      Great stuff guys

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
