Had cow tag in NE Oregon.
I didn't have my phone on me when I shot her so I only have this pic but I killed this cow elk the 2 days ago. She's a big bitch. Shot her at about 400 yards.

Heart for dinner tonight.

Before I got married I used to fish the Smith every November. This year I am going to Cabo for Dorado, Wahoo and tuna. Last time we went i bet we caught 600lbs of fish. It was more like work than a vacation. Also going to Oregon after Christmas for two weeks and hope to get some steelies.

Friday evening I shot this doe for our early muzzle loader season. Sunday morning I got another doe on crop damage permit but forgot to snap a pic.

Fished NorCal Pit river last Saturday with the flyrod. Hooked roughly 60 fish, landed around half. Heading back up this weekend for round 2.

Nice! The red desert area holds a lot of big deer and elk, some of the biggest in Wyoming.
Don't go tell everyone in Iowa how nice it is

Depending on how life goes, we may be out within the next two falls to try archery elk back there again. We picked up two arrowheads out in the high desert - that was an awesome find. All together an amazing trip!

Fawk poachers.
The rut is about to start and my trail cams have been lit up with bucks cruising during daylight the past few days. Some friends of mine have been dropping some nice mature bucks. This morning was perfect weather, 26 degrees and calm winds. I walked about 1/3 mile to my favorite spot for bow hunting the rut and settled in. This is in timber that I own.

After the sun had been up 30 minutes or so I was scanning the woods and saw what looked like a big rack laying in some brush 30 or 40 yards away. After it was light enough to use binoculars I glassed it and saw that it was a large dead buck. Around 8:30 I couldnít take the suspense anymore and left my blind to go check it out.

What I found was a 150Ē+ mature buck that had been shot in the neck. I back tracked the blood trail and it started about 20-30 yards off the gravel road. I called the neighbors across the road to see if they made a bad shot on one and it jumped across the road into mine. They said they havenít been hunting that farm this week.

So... someone saw this buck last night while driving down our gravel road, probably while spotlighting, and shot it with a gun in the neck. My guess is they were going for a head shot. Thatís what the poachers around here do because they are just looking for antlers to sell. They cut the heads off with a chainsaw and scoot out before anyone notices. This buck ran about 150 yards almost straight uphill to my ridge top before it died and whoever shot it took off and left it.

I called the DNR and they will be patrolling the area a little heavier. Thereís been trail cameras and SD cards stolen in the area lately, and my wife has seen spotlights on a road across the valley a few nights.

Hereís a couple pics. What a shame. Heís a good looking old fella.

We've fought of poachers the last three years since we started hunting our land. The neighbors either have crops or cattle and our timber is the largest for a few miles so the deer come out of the crops across the road and into our timber morning and evening. There are locals who have been road hunting there for years. We run them off when we can, one guy last year asked me what time we were leaving so he knew when to come back. We have found four dead deer on our land over the last three years.
The local MDC agent has been given the tag of the truck he was in.

If it was 26* out last night, why not keep the buck? No sense in letting it waste.

I can’t do anything with it until the DNR Officer gives me a salvage tag. He hasn’t shown up yet.

I walked away from a 4x4 bull elk (I was one of two who shot it at the same time) and didn't get another shot at an elk all season.
My 9yo daughter got a couple dusky grouse (we had to stop the kids at two each, state bag limit is three anyway) her first weekend out actually hunting, so she was very excited and proud of her work.

Poachers and trespassers are some of the lowest of the low.

We have a big problem with it down here as well. Hunting and shed season is bad, but (morel) mushroom season is even worse. Every townie just heads to whatever stand of timber that they can find and scavenges the place. During the spring there will be cars just parked along our country road - we've kicked off 3 different groups of people just on our 10 acres last year.

No adult tags this year but still need to fill the freezer.

Took this little fellow opening day.

Ever have problems with the cow sticking around? A buddy had a calf draw when we were kids and he said the worst part of the hunt was the cow chasing them off the carcass constantly as they were trying to get a line on it to haul across the pond.

The DNR officer finally was able to make it this afternoon at 3. Heís been busy with other poaching calls and a guy that fell out of a tree stand.
Heís convinced it was a shotgun slug that killed the buck. The only season that is currently open in Iowa is archery.
He gave me a salvage tag so I can legally keep the rack.
Hereís a couple better pics:

That's a shame. Glad you got to hold on to the rack.

That's interesting. They issue calf/fawn permits? Down this way we only shoot yearlings by accident when there isn't enough light out to see very well What's the proportion of baby vs adult animal tags?

You're relatively new to the gutterburg area if I'm not mistaken from previous conversations? Or NEIA?

That area is littered with lowlifes, losers, poachers and trespassers in terms of hunting. More so if you associate with the Wisconsin side ( cassville etc), travel east or west of 52, or have ever seen half the residents of "buenie".

And in general

I'm a lifer in the area.
I grew up on a farm just a few miles from where I live now. We are on the southern edge of the area where meth and poaching is really bad. That being said, in the last 10 years we've had two different neighbors within 10 miles of us moved out of their homes by SWAT teams, both times with helicopters circling. One was for multiple charges including drugs, the other was for mailing a letter to a local casino threatening to blow it up.

I'm 99% sure you need a passport to travel to Buenie... That place is pretty interesting.

Cow stuck around but didn't menace us.

It is not a well thought out situation here for moose hunting. In this particular area it is a 6 day hunt. If you didn"t draw an adult tag, by default, you can take this year's calf.

In other areas, where the season is longer, you can still take calves but not until the third week of the season.

I haven't been able to get out much recently due to family health issues, but was able to get out some this past weekend.

11/12 First doe I put a hole in her heart and she maybe only made it 40yds. 30 minutes later a little 3pt comes in tracking the doe and beds down next to her body.

As I'm walking out I crest a hill. I can see across the field, past my truck, over the county road, and out into the next field I can see a buck and doe about 8-900 yds from me. I get back to my truck, unload my gun, go sign out of the area I was in and sign into the area I saw the buck and doe. Driving down the farm access road I stop, get out, load my gun. I had covered the distance to them and circled around to 80yds on their other side. They were to busy dealing with each other to worry about me. After I shot the doe the buck was clueless and to what he should do. He was a good 3.5yo looked like maybe a 7pt. He still hung out in the same area looking for her for 30 minutes even after I drug her out.

The bucks aren't thinking with their big head right now and are being stupid.
