Outfitting for Iowa trophy whitetails can be a great ego leveler and this year certainly proved this fact to Sheri and me. The 2012-13 seasons followed a severe drought with most of the crops out of the fields in September. The lack of sufficient late summer and early fall also resulted in poor foodplot growth. This coupled with a severe outbreak of EHD that killed lots of deer in our area and really hit the bucks hard really had Sheri and me apprehensive about the season. With all those problems we ended with 7 bucks over 164” one of our best seasons. Go figure!
