    So where do you get beer and wings from? do you need to carry to get them??

    Your missing the point entirely.

    I’ll stick to fishing guys, thanks for the input. Sorry if I offended anyone around here. Take care.

    Out of respect for your apology, I will keep my opinions out of your fishing threads. If they decide to ban lead sinkers, or make fillet knives illegal to carry, I will abstain from supporting your rights.

    Just emailed the Senator and encouraged him to continue this legislation and that I am backing him 100%. If you dont an area being off limits to your guns here’s some advice, dont go there!!!!!!!!!

    Sounds like either a Troll or a traitor.

    Maybe if I’m colored I should’t go somewhere where is says “no blacks” too? Its Martin Luther King Jr. Day, so let that sink in for a bit.

    What is this 1960? Thats the most ignorant thing Ive ever heard.

    Apparently you didn’t learn your history lessons from the 60s.

    Love reading about this and seeing the pics Whip. Your living the dream!

    I got out duck hunting only one weekend this year on the Mississippi in WI. Wife, job, and kids only allow me so much time!

    Gonna be living in Dubuque this summer and I’ll have my kayak along and I’m looking for some areas without current so that way I can just paddle back to the car. Willing to go as far south as sebula and up to Lansing. Mostly wanna fish for bass.

    Thanks

    I live outside Dubuque and just got a Kayak last year. Been on the Mississippi a few times now, love it. Havn’t done any bass fishing from the Kayak however, in fact I’m a pretty crappy fisherman all-around, LOL. But I’m wanting to try.

    Been pretty desolate for me this late season.

    I go out mostly evenings about 1/2 hour before sunset. Don’t like sitting in sub-zero temps, I usually make my rounds and glass until I see something, haven’t seen much.

    This November has been awesome, seen a lot of deer moving and a lot of big bucks that I couldn�t get shots on. Well, here it is, the end of November. I am starting to feel like I�ll be bow hunting again in January. I would love to tag out before it comes to that. So, does anyone have any advice for late rut hunting? I have decoys, rattling antlers, estrous bleet cans, grunt tubes, and about everything you need to call in a deer, I was simply wondering what to use, and how I can up my odds on sticking an arrow in a deer? Last weekend I had the best day on stand all year, seen 3 shooter bucks, a nice 8, a big 10 dogging a doe, and a monster 12 point typical that I�ve been dreaming about since I seen him. So, to conclude, if anyone could share some of their late season tactics I would be very appreciative. Thanks and I hope everyone has a happy thanksgiving!

    Had almost the same experiences this year! Seen a lot of good ones. Shot a nice buck that I never found and missed one. Now bucks are getting more scarce. I will shoot a meat doe this week I hope given the right shot opportunity. Almost had one this morning but too many little branches in the way. On my way out for an evening hunt now.

    So far nothing here will pull them off in ill. Just need them to come close enough. I love the rut!!

    Agreed. Had one between 30-60 yards Saturday and could NOT get his attention grunting, it was all about chasing does for him.

    Seen lots of mid to mature bucks over the last week in my part of NE Iowa.

    Shot but missed one Saturday! Was watching a medium buck for almost 45 min. Started with him following 3 does and meandering around the wood about 60 yards out. Tried grunting at him to get his attention, had limited success getting him a little closer and closer until finally he lost interest in me and was fixated on another lone doe. At that point I could not get his attention at all and he kept inching closer to the lone doe, which was fortunately closer to me.

    He got within 30 yards and I had an opening, took the shot but missed….Think a twig or small branch threw my arrow off. The moment I shot, he took off sprinting after that lone doe like a bat out of hell! They ran off across a pasture over to another property and that was that. Found my arrow where I thought it would be, a clean miss. Uhhh!

    That 45 minutes with that buck was pretty exciting. Like watching a nature program on TV only with me getting excited with adrenaline rushes. Several times I had to focus on simply relaxing to get my heart rate and breathing under control. When I drew to shoot and focus on the shot everything went black like tunnel vision!

    I may have failed on the shot, but I felt alive Saturday. That’s hunting! Can’t do that surfing the couch.

    Thanks guys.

    Should have added this pic too. My view from shooting. Directly under the green blob of leaves which is in center of pictures is two white splotches, which is the underbelly of the buck divided by the hind leg.

    Congrats! Used to do early Muzzy before I got into Bow Hunting. I will do late Muzzy this year.

    Love your picture of your hunt zone in the autumn. Looks exactly like I remember it from years past. Its such a great time of year to be out with the leaves falling!

    Thinking about taking a trip to Eastern Iowa with the wife and three kids (ages 12-17) to camp in Maquoketa campgrounds, hit Maquoketa Caves, canoe the Maquoketa River, fish, hike, and do what ever else we can do.

    I have never been to eastern Iowa to float and fish so any tips and information would be great on things to do and places to see. We are not totally set on the Maquoketa campgrounds or even Maquoketa River so any suggestions are surely welcomed.

    Thanks

    Check out Baileys Ford near Manchester on the Maquoketa River.

    Nice camping, trout stream and a canoe rental in town that will shuttle you. I also recommend eating at the Chinese restaurant in town.

    Maquoketa Caves is a nice camping area near Maquoketa especially for hiking thru caves. Not as sure about fishing and canoeing there as I havn’t tried it. There is a really nice drive-in theater south of Maquoketa. I recommend tacos at Obies restaurant!

    Activity and gobbles have been down in my corner of NE Iowa, I am NW of Dubuque.

    That said, I was riding my bike to work today at 7AM and had a Gobble so loud off the side of the road from the woods, it startled me where I damn near fell off my bike!

    I was blasting Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls” out of my stereo so maybe that set that Tom off? LOL
