Well I didn’t draw. I applied for zone 5 with 4 points. Last year it was 100% with that many points but I guess it’s going to continue to gain popularity. Pretty disappointed to be honest. I suppose I’ll have to do it in 2022.

Congrats. Now the hard work begins. Hopefully you have some scouting time in already. The planning stage is pretty darn exiting. Oct 1st can never come quick enough when that tag is in your hand.


Thanks Dewey! I already have 3 scouting trips down there in the past few years.

Do you have any set standards or just killing the first buck that excites you? Either way is cool just curious.

I’ve been able to think about this for a good 4 years. I’d like to say a 130 would be the standard. But I’m not afraid to kill something that excites me. :lol:

130” is very doable. I ate an expensive bowl of tag soup last season after setting my standards too high but I was OK with that because that was my mindset going in. I killed a good one in 2016 so wasn’t afraid to shoot the moon and pass on bucks I never would have my first time hunting there. Like Roger Raglin always said you will never kill a Boone & Crocket if you keep killing Boone & Crickets. :lol:

I say shoot what makes you happy. As long as you don’t go thinking it will be easy because Booners are behind every tree you’ll do all right. It’s Iowa but that doesn’t make it a sure thing. Unless your name is Jackson Marsh. He makes it look easy. :lol:

After missing Kansas put in for zone 5 late season Iowa tag. Was drawn and I have no plan. Im sure it’ll be fun either way.
