    Vaughn's 1st Antlered Buck - WOW!

    Short version. Long version to come when time frees up. My oldest son, Vaughn (13), and I had the best hunt of our lives last night. We watched this guy emerge from the timber about 200 yards out and creep across a beanfield toward us for at least 15 minutes before he presented a good broadside...

    Iowa Fencing Laws

    Looking for input. I have a shared property line fence between my acreage and my neighbor's acreage to the North. None of our shared property line fence has been maintained for years. My neighbor recently rented out the East 1/2 of his property for a cattle pasture. The renter stopped by my...

    Youth Season Progress

    My daughter and I saw a nice buck Saturday evening. Sweated a gallon and gave a pint of blood to the starving mosquitos. Actually glad she didn't harvest 1. It's got to cool down a touch between now and Oct 1st, doesn't it? Anybody else having any luck?

    Stinky Antlers

    I've got one recent European whitetail buck mount (bug cleaned) that stinks horribly bad. The smell isn't the skull either. The odor is emanating from the first 5 or so inches of the antler bases. I shot him in late October, so I was thinking maybe some left over velvet remnants??? I've used...

    What Dreams are Made of

    I don't know if anybody else experiences this, but when late summer rolls around and we get even a hint of cool weather, my dreams start being bombarded with imaginary deer hunts. I started having them again last week, when we had a cool / dry snap, and have no doubt they'll stream steadily all...

    Zipline Through the Food Plot

    This is my 1+ acre food plot that I have planted on the hilltop behind my house. A farmer buddy of mine likes venison, so he gives me some of his left over seed and I plant it with a rotary spreader that I pull behind my sons quad. Then I lightly disc it in and hand the reins over to Mother...

    Local Vizsla Breeders

    My families OLD dog recently died. He was a mutt that made for a great pet, but couldn't hunt a lick. I'm interested in doing some research on local (Central Iowa) Vizsla breeders. We already have a spade bitch Vizsla that also makes for a great pet, but is really gun shy. I'm pretty sure she...

    Racks-N-Tracks Taxidermy, Knoxville IA

    I've seen an add on FaceBook from this father and son taxidermist team out of Knoxville, IA (Racks-N-Tracks), offering a full shoulder mount deer for $425. Their pictures posted on FB look like they do pretty good quality, but their Website address isn't active. Has anyone done business with...

    3 Iowa Trophies I Harvested in 2016

    http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/75724b66#/75724b66/16 I was truly blessed to harvest 3 Iowa wall hangers last season. This is an article I wrote, and a few pics. I have yet to see a shooter this year, but I'm taking 2 weeks of PTO in November, so I have high expectations. P.S. I'm not an...

    Buying Land with a Self-Directed IRA

    My neighbor approached me about possibly selling his property in the near future. I'm not extremely interested in his house or buildings, but I am interested in 8 acres of rough hillside pasture, that butts directly up against my home property. I believe he would be willing to partition off the...

    Eastern Red Cedar Seedlings

    The Ames, Iowa DNR Nursery doesn't have any Eastern Red Cedars available this year, so I've been shopping around. I can buy 1,000 bare root seedlings from the Chief River Nursery, and have them shipped to me for $662.40. Does anyone else have a better / cheaper source they can recommend? Thanks...

    2016-17 was my Dream Season

    I harvested all three of these trophy bucks in Iowa this past season. I didn't run any cameras and hadn't encountered or seen any pictures of any of these deer prior to harvesting them. I harvested #3 on January 8th, and am honestly still on cloud 9 and still in a state of disbelief! My...

    Establishing thick ground cover in existing TSI woodlands

    I live in Central Iowa and would like some input on plants that have a low attrition rate when planted within existing woodlands that have had extensive TSI performed over the past few years. Undesirable trees have either been rung / girdled or fell and removed completely. The canopy has been...
