    I agree with the others. I know you want someone to pile on here, but you are not considering the major influx of complaints/calls that have come in they will have to deal with. You are one of many who is probably waiting for your gun, and they have things such as a major malfunction causing an injury to worry about. They need to get a recall going, they need to plan to send out an update to current owners, talk to a legal team possibly, etc etc. They still could have done more for you, but this is not as bad as you think. It always seems worse when it’s our money, and that’s part of it.

    I just bought a bushmaster .223 for $500. To top it off, it came with a $150 mail in rebate. Hard to pass up an AR for $350!

    Where did you find that deal at?

    Right, I’d like to keep an eye out for that deal. Sounds great!
    I’ve been considering one for play and the occasional truck hunt. Not to hijack the thread, but I’m usually calling my coyotes, so legit question on the scope. Do you truck hunters prefer the red dot or something different?

    As noted above, buy infrared (IR) at your own risk in Iowa. It’s not legal for calling dogs. The only legal answer that I’m aware of is thermal, which is usually above the price many want to pay. Good luck!

    Any good public land recommendations for coyote hunting in Eastern Iowa?

    There are no coyotes on public ground in Iowa.

    I will have to agree with Speng since this has been my experience thus far. I have yet to see an actual coyote on public ground while doing any type of hunting on public ground, be it deer, pheasant, duck, squirrel, or whatnot.

    I will say the sledding is much more difficult, and I’d get permission on private, but I have called them on public on a few occasions. Earlier in the season is generally easier, as long as you aren’t crossing over with the bow hunters, and I’d think you could pull some in during the breeding season if you do it right.

    Have you looked at public hunting options on the DNR website? That’s where I’d start. As mentioned, there are coyotes everywhere, and I’m not sure you will get anyone to say “go here and get coyotes.” Here is a link for you to do some research on public areas you can hunt. Look at the IHAP land too. It’s listed.

    It’s definitely handy and especially useful when I view a fence line on a new property and I’m not sure if this is the property line or not. That happens a lot when I get new coyote calling area and the farmer says, “I have another 100 acres two miles south of here….” It tells you almost everything you need to know. As mentioned, it can be a little out of date at times and slow to load in areas of questionable reception. Still well worth it.

    This is why I’m thinking of just taking on bow hunting

    This is why I quit shotgun hunting more than a decade ago. Not saying everyone is crazy, because I really believe it’s only a small percentage (imo) who let the juices take over and start firing away. Problem is, too many of us have heard that slug go zinging past us in the trees… 😯
    Let me add, I’m not against shotgun hunting or groups hunting as long as it’s legal and they aren’t just running wherever they want. Again, most group hunters (imo) are very much by the book these days.

    Great job on the cat Scruffy! I called one up the week before season started, so I will be heading back there between bow stands in hopes of bringing it down. Thanks for sharing!

    I was hauling grain for a farmer I work for in Madison County last night and watched in another farmer’s field as a big, mature 10 pointer trotted around in front of the auger wagon which was hauling corn from the combine to a waiting semi. I was on the road, so couldn’t watch the entire show, but he didn’t seem to care at all, despite being only 50 yards in front of the wagon/tractor and in the picked corn stalks. His mind was elsewhere.

    In my experience, a deer that snorts many times is not quite sure of the danger, but has caught a whiff of something that it is not happy about. It seems as though the multiple snorts are kind of “asking a question”…is there really something bad there or is it just me? If they know for sure that there is a problem, they usually book it out of there with one, or even no, snorts.

    I’d agree and add that I’ve never had a happy ending with these experiences. Next time!

    Well-timed question. I just drug my buck decoy out of the shed and was debating on when to lug it down to the tree stand.

    Okay, you talked me into using Milo. What products do I get?

    Everything I’ve had from there is wonderful. I like their sticks (both mild and hot) and summer sausage (with and without cheese) and their jerky are my top favs.

    Definitely like their cheddar sticks, but both mild and hot are good! They make tasty jerky and summer sausage. I didn’t love their baconator burger patties, but that’s just because I thought they are dry. Lots of folks love them and the brats.

    I’ve often wondered about these. Is it all on public? Is it a drawing for both does and bucks?
    Thanks and congrats!

    If you are close enough, I’d highly recommend the Milo Locker.

    That’s an experience neither of you will ever forget! Congrats to him! I still have the photo of my first deer (a doe via shotgun) 30 years later. It’s still a cherished piece of my youth. Great memory, congrats to him!

    I prefer mornings over evenings. Last year, I saw most of my shooters in the morning, with limited visuals in the evenings. I also have a much higher success rate for coyotes when calling in the morning, not that we were on that subject
