    % dropped antlers? Part of state, deer #’s & food?

    Think it varies by region a lot. & if u do or do not have food, etc. No doubt they dropping early where ive got cameras up. I’ll still wait long time to shed hunt but folks can chime in here over time on the progress. Generics of what area & any details like “no food left” or “high or low...

    All points stated are pretty fair & either “side” of guys reading this- my gut says u all “get it” & will make it through “whatever” as u are go getters & folks that know how to “survive”. yes - I get it too.... we will hear lots of theories or predictions and no one knows what will happen...

    Early shed year? Brother’s buck shed at shot

    My buddy has big farm & a smaller farm SE of Des Moines about 30 mins.... he knows his stuff & follows things close. his big farm ran out of food a while ago. His words “I’m 100% shed. Never seen anything like it”. Pretty high deer #’s. Other farm has a little food left & lil less deer. Said...

    SF 112 Changes to the Forest Reserve Program

    A tax hike on top of a tax hike!!! rural iowa got pummeled with tax increases in last 3 years. The poorest counties in iowa had farm taxes go up around 20-40%. They went up during a time that grain prices plummeted along with cash rents & new crp rates. Just fantastic timing!!! The everyday...

    Another switchgrass question!

    2 acres. Either is fine - drill or frost seed. As long as not tons of snow .... February is probably ideal. Later february. Ideally want 4 weeks of freezing & thawing. Timing for that is regional for sure - MO vs MN for example will be a couple weeks difference.

    Learn anything new in 2020?

    Very cool!!!!! & great topic!!! Off top of head..... I killed 1st bow buck out of Blind - no other option. Old dogs can learn new tricks. I’m a stubborn treestand loving fool & probably always will be. But can change how things are done. adding more alfalfa on the farm. For tracking a deer...

    HF 60 NR tag allocation for outfitters

    OH MY GOSH!!!! I can’t believe I’m reading this. Ya - “here we go again” is right!! Must be stopped!!!!!! This is a hybrid of what KS experimented with. It’s also a huge leap forward to turning Iowa into Illinois - which the run of the mill land incrementally turned into a outfitted hunted...

    SF 39 and 40 Disabled Veterans

    Thanks for posting. Knee jerk reaction with no nitty gritty details - appears like a patriotic “thank u” type of bill. I hope that’s what it is.

    2 buddies who did “pretty well” were planning building houses in last 12 months. Both stopped. & way more folks out there didn’t stop though. Building like crazy here. the 2 that stopped both said their quotes or costs went up like 20%. So much that they said “no way. I’m gonna stay where...

    Early shed year? Brother’s buck shed at shot

    Agree!!!!! I agree with folks who think it’s little more shed & earlier. & agree “we hear this every year” but this year u r spot on IMO. Doesn’t change anything really but agree. I started getting them shed in early December. just a GUESSTIMATE but I’d guess.... 20-25% r shed now. Vs...

    Crop prices, inputs & interest rates...

    I ordered some cow manure. It’s going to end up being cheaper than conventional PLUS it has all the micros, organic matter, etc. Locally we ran out of hog & chicken so I’m hauling this about 12 miles. Still better than conventional in both ways- cost & effectiveness.
