Broken Brow was at the Classic last week-end. I heard good things about them from other industry insiders.

Hitman, did you use a outfitter, did you get a deer? What town did you hunt near? Thanks, Bob

wybowbender, I was on a mix on private and public land. Out of respect to my friend who invited me out, I can't name of the town. I will say that I have never seen more bucks over 130 ever before (over 20) I hunted a total of 11 days on 3 trips and had 2 close calls on 140 class bucks (one of which I hit) and luckily my buddy killed the next day 147 inch 9 point that was a great 8 with a small g4. I didn't see anything over 160, but he has photo's of several. For a MN boy, it was a trip of a lifetime! My buddy that went with killed a 130's 8 point 2 hours into our first sit! You will have a blast. If you do some research, and are willing to use a kayak or canoe, you can easily do well on public land.

Looking to hunt Muscatine Co, public, private, or public. I have 2 pp, my wife has colon cancer, starting chemo next week, so I'm not sure if I can hunt there this year? Just have to wait and see, maybe next year? Thanks, Bob

Get another preference point this year so you can be there for your wife. Best of luck to you both. C

Yup, agree with Charlie!! Get another point this year. I have 3 myself and I am buying another this year and where I am planning my hunt I can draw easily with 2. Just some insurance. Take care of your wife, hunting will take care of itself! Shawn

Charlie x3. Best wishes and prayers to your wife!

How many p points does this zone usually take to draw?

Outfitter says 2 points are good for zone 7

10-Mar-18
Not wanting to hijack, but I’ve been trying to figure out. If I buy a point this year will I have two points in the following years draw?

WV, I wish the best for your wife. Really sorry.

From: Shawn

No you will enter draw with one point. Shawn

Accumulate points and take care of your wife. More points will give you more options in different zones. 4 & 5 pretty much require 3 points now. Maybe 4. Best of luck to you and your wife.
