With the hunting seasons winding down, it's time for my annual post featuring some of the bucks taken in my area this year. I've got 100+ more pics but don't really want to take the time to scan / copy them out of the local paper, so these will have to do. I apologize if I freeze or crash your computer. lol! I'll be staying home to hunt, but safe travels to Iowa everyone! lol! Onto the pics...



Opening night, Sept 15th. 19 1/2" wide

Hey Zack, you really made a major effort to post all those pics of incredible hunts!  Thank- you!  Not to take anything away from a hunters' trophy or successful hunt... But does it annoy anyone else when a hunter holds a rack like he is bunting a baseball at arms length?  I'm impressed and love big buck photos but why do some hunters feel like they have to make the buck look bigger than it is?  Let the actual size speak for itself!  My little rant....maybe out of jealousy, but I wouldn't do it.
