I have been looking forward to my Iowa hunt since my last one 2 years ago. This year Matt joined our group. We saw a GIANT riding around Friday. On the opening day of the second shotgun season I saw a huge typical out of range. I passed a 145" 3 1/2 year old ten on Sunday since they do not want young deer shot. Monday started off slow but then the flood gates opened and I saw a pile of deer including quite a few nice ones. The BIG typical from the first night was in the CRP and I watched him for an hour. He got behind a tree and I lost sight of him. With only 10 minutes of legal shooting left I saw a big buck come from behind the tree and start coming right at me. I looked through my binos once thought it was him I got my slug gun ready. He crossed behind the tree again and I shot him as soon as he was in a clearing. He went right down and I started to shake and really thought I just shot the big one that I was watching. When I got down and to the buck I was thinking WTF just happened. Still a great buck and happy to put my tag on him. He is a main frame 10 point with split brows and a couple kickers, he scores 157". Matt is in that box tonight so I hope he shoots him tonight.
