Hit the Ankeny ponds on the north end of town. The pond by the old aquatic center/library/youth ball fields would be a great spot to take a kid. I hit it every once and a while and used to alot when my son was young. It usually produces plenty of numbers.

Edgewood is where all of our deer go now. Summer sausage is some of the best I’ve had. Not too dry and great flavor. Their Honey BBQ sticks and cheddar jalepeno sticks and brats are fantastic along with their maple sticks, ring bologna and meatloaf mix. Those items are basically what my last deer was made into
I decided to try Edgewood since IÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½m up in Shell Rock for Christmas. ItÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s only about an hour drive so really not too far. I cut up 2 deer last night to take there.
IÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½m going to try jalapeÃƒÂ±o cheddar summer sausage, cheddar sticks, smoked brats, breakfast sausages and maybe some other things.
Anyone tried the dried deer? That sounds interesting.
Haven’t tried the dried beef but the maple breakfast links are out of this world good. You won’t be disappointed.m sauerParticipantDecember 23, 2017 at 5:57 pmPost count: 1285m sauerParticipantDecember 19, 2017 at 1:36 pmPost count: 1285m sauerParticipantDecember 13, 2017 at 9:38 pmPost count: 1285

Thank you for the tips.
Are the public lands in Clayton Co. (in your opinion) high pressure hunted or pretty much a hunter has the land to himself?
When you’re talking about lack of food supply are there not many corn / soybean fields in Clayton Co.?
I would imagine the shotgun seasons are really busy. It might slow down for late muzzy….it usually does in most places. You may have an occasional muzzy group that pushes the timber though. You definitely won’t have it to yourself. Look at aerial maps and see if you can find public that either has food plots on it or better yet butts up to ag fields. You could do some scouting and sit up in a staging area to catch deer heading to the ag in the evening.m sauerParticipantNovember 26, 2017 at 2:40 pmPost count: 1285
I had a pair a few years ago…..not sure if they have changed them or not but I would probably save your money. At least in my experience they were ok at best. A couple things to keep in mind…
They don’t warm your feet up if your feet area already cold. So, make sure you where them to where ever you are gonna sit.
They aren’t really made for walking in as they aren’t the most comfortable.
I honestly didn’t really feel that much warmer with them.
Again, this was a few years ago so they may have improved them.m sauerParticipantNovember 26, 2017 at 2:33 pmPost count: 1285
I had a Vortex Diamonback 4-12×40 on my 17 and it was perfect. I have a few different Vortex scopes on my rifles and they are really nice for the money. A Diamondback will run you anywhere from 150-200 depending on sales. They make a great glass and the Vortex warranty is unbeatable.m sauerParticipantOctober 28, 2017 at 1:54 pmPost count: 1285
How far forward? How was deer standing when it was hit? If you got 6 inches that is enough to do some damage. Look carefully at your arrow too…..I’ve seen and personally experienced what I thought was more penetration when it is actually a couple inches of penetration and blood splatter/smear that made it look like more penetration. Don’t give up and good luck!
