My first full day in Iowa was nothing less than what I imagined Iowa whitetail hunting to be! We got into the woods around 5:45am and didn’t get out till dark……Ocober 20th is definitely a little early for an all day sit, but around 8:30AM we had a really nice 10 come in off the ridge and bed just 62 yards from our stand. This buck had geat curled in 2’s and 3’s, mass, tall brows, etc. Not a complete giant, but a solid 160” or better buck. We got to see him get up and bed back down 8 times throught the course of the day….groom himself, scrath his back with his antlers, sleep, etc. It was a great day in the woods and an awesome experience getting to watch a mature deer all day. Day 2 produced 6 bucks in the am….all of whom got chased off by a coyote that is no longer capable of running deer (see pics below). Lots of beautiful land here in Iowa and some unbelieveable deer running these hills! More to come…….
