    Have you shot your bow since? I missed a big one years ago cause my bow was about 6in low even at 20 yards

    I’m sorry to hear that caldwell. That’s a terrible feeling.
    The neighbors wouldn’t let you look for him?

    Just keep at it. I would ask the neighbor if you can search his property. Look for crows or buzzards flying around.

    A bit of an update... yes the neighbor will allow me to look and I searched all over his property. A friend down the street (bout a half mile or so) caught a picture of him later that night. Alive and well. Now let’s just hope he comes back

    I pulled the trigger on this buck tonight with my 30-30. No more buck tags for me this year but I will do my best to get a doe for the team!

    It’s been a grind the last few days in IA. These deer are pressured pretty hard. Seen three giants today but no shots. I think we’re getting some of these places figured out, hopefully tomorrow one of us four will connect!

Its getting time to catch a big guy cruising the creek bottoms. I will be out dang near everyday till I get it done or rifle season starts. Got next week off so hopefully get it done. Good luck and stay safe

    Did an all day hunt yesterday on a property that I've never hunted before. The trails and sign were insane for public land. Didn't see any deer until around 3pm. I saw 5 deer that were about 100 yards away. Then around 3:45 I had a buck encounter at about 15 yards. The only problem is he broke off one side and he was a year or two too young. Here is the Tactacam footage of the encounter.
