    With deer season ending and river season on its way, I heard an interesting debate the other day an figured I would see what your guys opinion is. In the state of Iowa would you guess there are more 160"+ deer or 40+ pound flathead catfish.

    Flatheads are always a target of mine during the spring and summer months. Attached are a few 40+ pound fish I caught last year. Enjoy!

    The 1st few weeks of may have produced the best for us over the years. Plus you can pull double duty and get in some turkey hunting and mushrooms in between running lines or Rod and reeling.

    I agree with Rich77 the last week of April through the month of May is always productive here in SE Iowa.
