    Went out this evening. Saw several does but no bone other than a real nice Buck we jumped going in . My buddy went with me and hunted just up the hill from me. Met him at dark and he tells me he shot the biggest Buck of his life. He was shooting a crossbow and shot it from the ground. Going back to help him find it in the morn. There are some real monsters on the property and he's saying 150 inches. It was 15 feet from him when he shot. He feels real good about the shot but is apprehensive about going in for it tonight. Hope we find him.

    I saw the buck I call Too Tall tonight at 70 yards. Couldn't get him to come over so I could introduce myself though. What a magnificent specimen!

    This damn weird weather we are having in Iowa sucks. Woke up this morning to 70 degree temps and a thunderstorm rumbling through.

    Yep, went through here too. Had a couple lightning strikes really close, but didn't see anything smouldering when I got up this morning. We ended up with an inch of rain.

    Shes posted. I wrote the little story there so check her out if you would like. Not real happy how the shot turned out, got lucky that I didnt wound her. Least it was a good outcome.
