    I’ve got my bow pretty dialed in & I feel comfy to 30 yards. I’m excited as well. The recoil on a .375 h&h is actually not that bad. IMO (probably recoil figures on this) less than my old .300 RUM. I personally hope my neighbors & the state land by me doesn’t have .375 H&H’s being used for...

    Youth season

    cashier today when buying tags… “oh, thank you for taking kids out. So nice to see them off electronics!” She wasn’t a hunter but had a nice talk. I think most in our society actually “get it” ….. we need new young hunters & we are battling a society of “instant gratification...

    My dad & grandpa both did that so figured I’d follow the heritage & they named me accordingly. I did rifle some geese a few years back & hit a water skiing boat. Little embarrassing but heck of a lot of fun.

    Good call!!! This is my grandpa & great grandpa waterfowl hunting. We’ve never been very good at shooting so we always shot them off the water when they landed. Since I’m no good with regular shotguns & flying birds- really wish the state would change the regulations so I can follow my family...

    fertilizer

    If u don’t use the coop for bulk fertilizer that’s good. so- to get like triple 50 on the soil…. That’s 500 lbs of that fertilizer per acre or lil over 12 bags. Which is: $75/acre. Which- is not bad for food plotter. Clearly u need more N if it’s something like corn. But for most stuff…. That...

    Youth season

    Agree. Even when it’s “hot”…. If it’s consistently hot… wait until temp drops quick by 10-15 degrees & IMO - movement is good. Watch temp drop + increase in barometric pressure …. Movement picks up & good night to hunt. I use weather underground - they have 10 day temps + a graph with...

    YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING!! I just dropped off $10,000 deposit (minimum total of $25k before my decor & artistic art designs on it) this afternoon on a custom made “.50” BMG!!! Ordered my night vision military grade scope for $12,000 - no refunds. Custom ballistic tip handloads. & it’s a...

    I think I’ve read 10+ reasons now on not adding rifles. Just because you don’t like the reasons or don’t want to hear them doesn’t mean they haven’t been made. Let’s all be clear here….. LOOK CAREFULLY…. “The same rifle we learned to hunt with”…. (Or grandparents, etc)….. I don’t believe...

    Now that necked cartridges are lawful (min .35 - max .5) what will everyone be hunting with this year?

    I’ll mention this to “hunters in general” as “food for thought”. I’m not directly relating this to this rifle debate but something to chew on…. In multiple neighborhoods in Southern Iowa across 3 counties we have successfully busted poachers shooting deer out truck windows. Every one- rifle...

    I Think Hunters will fight the politicians & special interests so we don’t have a high power rifle season in iowa!! As arrogant as the IFC is…. hunters, landowners, sportsman & those that care about our fragile resource & system are not going to roll over. Looks like the battle lines are...

    Now that necked cartridges are lawful (min .35 - max .5) what will everyone be hunting with this year?

    I would be for leaving it how it is & not allowing more weapons to it…. No more weapons like crossbows. Unless it’s for handicapped or seniors. Compounds have been legal, I believe, since archery began in Iowa. If we dialed anything back, it should be the sham legislation hatched by special...

    I’m ok with it. Above is a respectful response with meaningful thoughts. I think that’s great even though we disagree. I know he has “his side” & “his reasons” & I’m going to say he doesn’t represent the position of most iowa hunters. Especially the hunters that are more on “serious...

    BTW- here was my answer to your question on “give me one reason” - here’s 5. I could add 5 more to this list easily. Like to hear answers to FOUR questions I asked u on this page above. In short…. 1) rifles for Turkey season? 2) 4 months, 7 seasons, 7+ weapons categories, 6% timber…. Not...
