An Association hunter since 1994 with a 200 lb. plus whitetail buck.

Thanks Mike, congratulations especially more so with that bow.

Last week we buttoned up the last of our Iowa leases and toured and posted a lot of land.

The habitat really looks good for both upland bird, deer and turkey hunting, but at least 80% of the crops are still in the fields because of the rain we've had the last couple of weeks.

The forecast for the next 10 days looks dry so hopefully Iowa fall harvest will get under way soon.

This year the number of MAHA Iowa deer tag holders is down, so those that do have tags should have more than ample quality land to hunt.
