    I have been off of the forum for a while...

    Lets see..I lost my job in March, worked three lesser paying jobs March-May, got offered a new better job in May.

    New job is in Iowa, so it required a move...to Iowa.

    My wife and I picked up stakes in Indiana and moved to southern Iowa, and I commute to Des Moines. The first three weeks here I spent in California and Arkansas for training, but I'm back in Iowa now =)

    Two weeks ago we found out my wife is pregnant with our first child.

    Anyway...I'm back now, but I am starting over with pretty much everything as far as hunting. I have been lucky enough to get permission on two private farms already, and I live pretty close to a huge tract of public land. I have very high expectations as I live in a very very good area of the state.

    Did I mention I live in Iowa now?

    SWEET!!!! Isn't life grand?!?! So since you're going to be busy with helping your wife get ready for the new young one, I'll be glad to "donate" some of my time to come out there and "HELP" you out with the deer population. Don't thank me. It's just the least I can do to help a poor fellow hunter out!!!!!

    Haha. If only it were that easy. The zone I live in is getting very tough to draw a tag as a nonresident. For the first time there were people with 3 points that didnt draw this year.
