    Skip, End of Rant????? Please do not ever stop your rants. I actually learn a lot from your rants and then share that information with my WI buddies who think I have it made since I packed my bags and moved from WI to IA. They think there are booners behind every tree and that Iowans are...

    How early

    Been hunting for over 35 years and this is something I have always wondered…. When hunting in the morning, how early should you be on stand before first light? I have heard many different thoughts and theories. Love to hear all of your thoughts/theories.

    What happened?

    Skip, I 100% agree with you about the corn. I am basically surrounded by corn right now. I have gone out a few times and everytime I can hear them in the corn, but can't get an eye on them. Now with this SSW winds here thru the weekend, I am using this time to button up everything and just...

    Definitely will help in anyway that I can. Sounds like $$$ is going to be an important part to this. Anyway a "banquet" or two be organized with donated items/services/etc to be raffled off? Thru many years of coaching, having raffles was an absolute GREAT way to raise money. I don't like...

    A second ARCHERY tag in Iowa??

    I say yes to trading the tag, but it must be ANTLERLESS only! I moved from WI to Iowa for 2 reasons…get away from people AND to hunt in a state that has age structure. I am probably not going to make many friends when I say this but let’s also take it one step further and make Iowa a 1 BUCK...

    Food Plots and screening

    Has anyone ever scattered screening like miscathus in plots bigger than an acre throughout food plots? I am just thinking that maybe more deer would be confortable b/c they can't see every other deer in plot and would help provide a little buffer for them. I have a 2 acre bean plot that I was...

    I think its all in the eye of the beholder. Everyone here is at their own stage in life and hunting journey so everyone has their own goals. No wrong answers here as long as we all support each other and strive for the overall goal of "Keeping Iowa Great"!!!!

    I would shoot the top one. For a deer to reach the 200” level, it takes a special deer and the bottom one looks like it could be something special. You don’t get many chances to chase a 200” whitetail!!!!

Anyone have any suggestions on a good scope that doesn’t require another p/t...

I am going to plant both sides in clover in early spring and then in late July/early August, I am going to plow one side and put it into half brassicas and half rye mix consisting...

    Need your thoughts/ideas AND reason why

    Yes the blue area is where the best soils are which is why I was thinking of planting beans in that area with a hot fence around them until November 1st. I have always heard that if you plant too small of a plot with beans, they will never make it. That bluish field is a minimum of 3 acres and...
