Iowa Whitetail Classic!!!

Who is heading to the show? I'll be there all day on Saturday. Can't wait to meet some old friends and of course see all of the bigs bucks. Have a safe drive.

I'll be the one walking around with the "Rut Junkie" shirt. Big smile

Iowa Whitetail Classic!!!

Just a day prior to the Iowa Whitetail Classic, a blizzard swept throughout Iowa and the midwest. Luckily, by Saturday morning, the roads were mostly clear (from the south) and we were able to make the trip to the show.

As usual, the Iowa Whitetail Classic did not have any shortage of Big Bucks! As you can see in the pictures, bucks were lined up stretching across the width of the exhibition room.

Here’s a snapshot of Casi and I with our good friends (and Whitetail Junkies), Jody & Alicia Hadachek.

Iowa Whitetail Classic!!!

Several years ago we had a buck running around with a very unusual set of head gear. We only saw him from distances but he looked like he had a huge rack with velvet hanging off of him. Ended up one of the guys we hunt with shot him during rifle season and we discovered why he looked the way he did. He was a big typical 8 that had gotten tangled up in big mess of red baling twine and had several sticks tangled in with it. It was quite a sight to see Yes

It's amazing what these bucks can get messed up with.

Several years ago, my dad was hiking through the bottoms where we used to hunt (before it was logged out), and made an unusual discovery.

He found a dead and half-eaten (by coyotes) 23-point non-typical that had gotten tangled up in a small brush pile and couldn't get free. Needless to say, my dad saved the antlers and had them mounted on a plaque.
