Nasty storm here.

Well, looks like winter is here. I hang all my hunting gear outside under my deck overhang. Just looked outside and the strong wind has blown snow on everything including filling up my boots. Just don't have it in me get things cleaned up and go sit this morning. Gonna be a morning of "watching from my cabin windows.

Go Hawkeyes

Sure hope the Hawkeyes can put the Wolverines in their place today! Can't stand Harbaugh!!!

End of first split

As the sun was setting on the end of the first season split. I sat in the stand looking back on all of the highs and the lows that came throughout the archery season. The highs and lows were about equal with no shots being fired on a buck. The encounters that were had definitely made the season one to remember coming to full draw twice on 2 Target bucks, only to not be able to find a hole to let the arrow fly through. Good luck to all that are hunting the next few weeks shoot straight and be safe. Now to get the brownie points back up with the bride for late season.IMG_20211203_171306841.jpg

Big Game Hero Contest!

You all know I’ve helped lots of individuals hunt all over the country and would appreciate a vote! I’d love to go on another hunt for myself next year since my Greenland Musk Ox hunt was cancelled as the outfitter went belly up. I’m constantly helping others get into the sport of hunting and figuring logistics on out of state hunts for fun. A vote would allow me to continue to do that and have a little bit of fun myself!

Thank you everyone!

When will the Bowmars get what they deserve?

Will they get away with this act as well? For those of you that don’t know what’s wrong with this I will attach another screenshot straight out of the Iowa hunting regulations. If this doesn’t piss you off enough then I don’t know what will. I get some of you don’t think CWD is a big thing but it is when the DNR begins their management strategies. Wipe the deer out like Wisconsin.

Two fer


Last year, had a hanging stand 25ft up in a big burr oak. Positioned between 2 foodplots surrounded by bedding, it overlooks a mock scrape to the west and a pinch point we call the “minipond crossing” to the south. Last year, I missed a chance at a Droptine bruiser b/c the stand was positioned so that I had to stand up and shoot to my weak side when he spooked. This year, B/f season, I repositioned the stand for better shot and cut a bigger shooting lane.

Nov 24 showed a SW wind shifting to NNW after lunch— the perfect wind for this stand. Entry into this stand is a bit tricky, and I bumped 2 deer coming in. Got set up by 2:00. At 4:00, saw 2 doe and what looked like a smaller buck cut down a draw 80 yrds away and into a foodplot out of sight.

Half hour later, heard deer approaching from my right coming out of the foodplot. 2 doe crossed on the minipond crossing. Expecting to see a smaller buck, I wasn’t prepared to put eyes on a big buck with massive neck. Then I recognized the antlers as our #1 target this year. Quick draw, grunt and pass-through shot at 38yrds. He ran off and I heard a crash.

Despite all the commotion, the does had not spooked. I reached down and pulled another arrow from my quiver that was setting beneath my seat. They sauntered by the mock scrape to my left, and I shot the larger doe at 18 yrds. She walked 5 steps and stopped. 30 seconds later, she tipped over. Have never had that happen before.

After field dressing the doe, my dad came in and we started trailing the buck. Blood trail petered out after 30 yrds. Called in Country, a buddy who helped me place the stand the previous year. After not finding any more blood, we walked the edge of the foodplot, shining a bright coo n light into the timber. Spotted him about 15yrds into the woods. He had traveled about 90 yrds after impact.

Blessed to have dad and Country be a part of the largest buck I’ve taken on our new farm.



Photo creds to Country


Caught on camera seconds before the shot.


First time we got him on camera during the season.


I think this is his shed from last year.
