Iowa late season Buck

Post  Willy on Sun Jan 04, 2015 1:38 pm

Very tough hunting. Never have we had the problem of to much food , it was that way this year. I guess the late season rains slowed harvest and the fact it was bumper crops this year all the bins were full. Still a lot of corn standing and a lot that has been harvested recently.  That and the fact there was zero snow , the deer don't have to move far to eat and they have multiple sources. 
As I always say , hunting is as much about luck as it is anything else , I literally walked right into this buck.  Parked the truck and started walking into my afternoon set up , 50 yards from the truck and there he was. After some maneuvering to get my wind right I was able to close the deal. It all happened really fast.  After the smoked cleared from my shot I see several deer flagging off the other way and over the ridge out of site , one of the group a buck a bit bigger than the one I shot. I was so geeked out after seeing my deer I never even noticed the others with him.

That's a nice looking buck Willy. Congrats. I've gotta ask. Where do you hang all your deer heads? You've gotta have a room filled and be on at least the second one.
