I came in from outside about 11pm. From about 9 until 11 I saw 10 or 15 really good streakers with 2 or 3 that really flared at the last moment. Also saw quite a few that were just momentarily a dim spot before they were done. Just about ready to go back out and view some more. I’m about 8 miles as a crow flies SE of Villisca in Taylor County.flyfishrParticipantAugust 13, 2009 at 4:31 amPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantJuly 23, 2009 at 8:44 pmPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantJuly 23, 2009 at 8:41 pmPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantJuly 23, 2009 at 1:55 amPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantJuly 23, 2009 at 1:35 amPost count: 1448

FLYFSHR: sign me up if you want a bowhunter to come help fill those tags. i will have 4 archery tags for the northern counties, but am willing to come shoot whatever you need as long as you know someone that will take them. the hush program is a good way to help the needy, but there are certain areas that need less doe tags as the pop has dwindled terribly
I would do that, but my problem now is trying to fit everyone in to hunt that I have now and not have any of them upset. I’ve got 2 for the youth season and 6 other bow hunters and 6 or 7 muzzle loaders, and about 10 shotgunners besides myself and my dad and brother and then I have 5 guys that come the Jan rifle season.flyfishrParticipantJuly 23, 2009 at 1:11 amPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantJuly 22, 2009 at 10:14 pmPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantJuly 19, 2009 at 11:30 pmPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantJuly 19, 2009 at 11:18 pmPost count: 1448

Today I ran into a farmer, he was a good freind of my grandpa’s. I still haven’t figured out why I didn’t here about this until now but anyway. I asked if he had any creeks that I could trap he said yes I do infact. I said can I trap them he said will you please I said with a ear to ear smile yes I will he said he would give me $5.00 for every single muskrat I trapped out of his 3 creeks and showed him at his house. He said he has a ton of them so I’m going to look at the creek soon and get a good Idea on what I have in my hands.
I remember I used to get $1.50 for a big rat unskined way back when. There ain’t nothing anymore fun than to get into a mess of rats and try and figure how to out smart the smart ones after you’ve already caught the dumb ones. Congrats on the gained trapping area & be sure to show us some pics.
Oh and bad-boy don’t be showin’ up around my place with a pair of antlers on this fall unless you want slain and mounted so I can put you on my wall. LOL 😆flyfishrParticipantJuly 17, 2009 at 5:45 pmPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantJuly 14, 2009 at 3:54 pmPost count: 1448

They own the land………..not the deer.
We farm the land that the states deer run through and eat the crops. In the last 5 years of deer hunting we have taken 60 or 70 deer off of the 360 acres that I farm. Of those there have been 3 or 4 mature bucks taken and I think if memory serves me right 10 button bucks. The rest have been does. And we still haven’t made a dent. Was out last night checking on the beans to see how the spraying I did a week ago was taking care of the weeds and I have 3, I repeat 3 does with twins. And saw 10 other deer 3 of them being nice young bucks. The old saying is for every deer you see there are 10 that you don’t. We now have I believe 2650 doe tags for taylor county this coming deer season up 200 from last year.flyfishrParticipantJuly 14, 2009 at 1:32 pmPost count: 1448

For the most part it is all how you raise them. A pit can be as loving as any lab, actually do you know that more people are bit every year by labs than any other dog? Now it is just a numbers game since there are probably more labs than any other dog.
My biggest gripe with these type of dogs is just the sure power that they have. What do you do if one of these attacks your dog or kid? This is why I don’t like them at all cause when that switch flips there isn’t much you can do about it. That switch could flip with my dog but even at 70lbs of lab I could handle her pretty darn good. I don’t think I could handle a 40lb pit.
Good post. It is all in how the dog has been handled, treated or trained before a person gets said dog. Now I’m not going to argue the fact of certain breeds of dogs background are known to be aggressive & some can be even dangerous.
I bet Smith & Wesson can handle a 40# Pit. 😉flyfishrParticipantJuly 14, 2009 at 1:19 pmPost count: 1448

I have used my land owner tag on a buck for the last two years. I bought two regular tags also, bow and gun, those tags either went unused or went on a doe. I could kill 3 bucks but I choose to kill 1. You asked for my take, personally I think that you should find something else to cry about.
Good post Big G. I forgot about the bow tag, but that is because I don’t bow hunt cause I have other people who bow hunt.flyfishrParticipantJuly 14, 2009 at 10:30 amPost count: 1448

Isn’t this rain something? The rivers down here in SE Iowa are up, down, up down and have been since ice out. I fish the Iowa and Cedar here locally a lot and sure makes figuring out the cats difficult. Normally this time of year your going from sand bar to sand bar and looking for holes that are holding fish. But I’m not complaining,(much) better than dry baked and hard even if I have to mow twice a week. Keep after it cause this rain will be white in six months 😉
You didn’t have to remind me about that change coming!!!!!!!! 😆 Not looking forward to it other than it means I can go ice fishing. BrrrrrrrflyfishrParticipantJuly 14, 2009 at 10:20 amPost count: 1448

whats your guys take on land owner tags. I agree they should be alotted extra tags, espically to thin the herd on there property and to protect it. but i believe they should be doe only tags, just like the extra bonus tags in the state. i mean isnt proven the best way to thin the heard is shootin does. protect your property and fill the freezer with back straps.
I don’t know what you are talking about unless they have changed it for the up-coming seasons. Land owners (if they qualify for the landowner tags) & tenants can each get 5 tags a piece with only one being a any deer lic. Now the depredation tags are all antlerless tags.
So what are you talking about here?
By the way I usually buy all the regular tags I can get too. And the 2 previous years I have had a depredation agreement with the DNR. Which remids me I need to call the biologist so he can come out and look at my corn that the frigging deer are eating so I can get signed up agian.flyfishrParticipantJuly 11, 2009 at 2:07 amPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantJuly 11, 2009 at 2:04 amPost count: 1448
My dad & I hunt the early muzzleloader & Nov season, but have had limited success (its either a hit or miss deal) at getting a doe a piece over the last 3 yrs. (We shoot does & let the bucks live) But it hasn’t affected getting our deer 1st or 2nd shotgun, nor has it affected any of the other hunters that I let hunt during 1st or 2nd season. I will say that the # of deer taken from the start of archery till the end of the jan rifle season last year was 5 to 10 less than the previous year.flyfishrParticipantJuly 11, 2009 at 1:43 amPost count: 1448
