    How was everyones deer shoot em up?

    Ours stunk. Hunted Hamilton Co. close to the Boone River. Only saw two bucks, and very few does. No shots as all deer were out of range. We really thought the snow would help, but the wind may have offset any advantage we had.

    Perhaps the DNR has, indeed, succeeded in thinning the herd?

    I nailed a big sucker just north of Hiawatha a few weeks ago. Not sure how many points as he ran off into the woods after he totaled my truck.

    Re: How was everyones deer shoot em up?

    Mine wasn't so hot either. Our camp only shot 5, 7 if you count two that lived. I saw 8, but I only had one tag so I decided to be a bit more conservative than usual. One of the bucks I saw is going to be real nice next year except his rack has no spread to it. I believe this was his dad:



    The rack looked exactly the same with less mass. And this one was shot before I saw the other one.

    The rest of the bucks I saw weren't any bigger than the one I had mounted a few years back so I don't see any point in shooting them. The does I saw were all the first morning and I didnt want to kill out right away and not be able to hunt again.

    I hunted Calhoun County, IL here... IRB++DUCKS+N+BUCKS++HARDIN ILLINOIS

    My buddy shot this one though


    I'm pretty jealous. It had a rough score in the upper 180s.

    ha! I'm with you dude. I'd hunt if it were warm and you didn't have to sit around in the woods all day.

    Hunting reports
    -> guy south of Iowa city: lots of deer, filled 2 doe tags being picky on a buck
    -> my boss: somewhere south of Tama-ish: sucked, has seen 5 deer in 5 trips
    -> coworker in the UP (MI): sucked, no deer
    -> coworker somewhere around CR: sucked no deer.

    so 3/4 agree that is sucks this year, and the other guys an ahole IC resident anyway.

    Re: How was everyones deer shoot em up?

    I didn't get to go this year because I had to have eye surgery a couple of weeks ago to repair a detached retina in my right eye (also my dominant shooting eye), but my dad and uncle filled their tags this morning with a big bodied but small-rack buck and a doe.

    The hunters claim the herd is getting thinned out but there are still plenty out there. The DNR needs to keep thinning the herd.

    That's what my insurance agent buddy says and I would think the DNR will keep up the pressure until out of state big money hunters quit coming. The they'll swing back the other way.

    We did see one huge buck in a field just east of I-35 between Ames and Elkhart exit. Too bad we weren't road hunting.
