Congratulations to one of our last bow hunters in camp who took this beautiful Iowa whitetail buck!! Bill passed up on 140 to 150 inch buck all week long and it paid off big time!! The weather finally broke to some very cold mornings in the mid teens, a front moved in and brought with it some bigger deer movement. Knowing what's walking these ditches and fence rows Bill had no issues passing on some quality buck throughout the week. Hunting with Whitetail Xtreme through the years he has taken some great deer and had set his sights on continuing to hold out for mature buck. The last day of his hunt started out very cold, light snow squalls blew in every hour or so. The day progressed with some sightings of different buck but none to draw on. Finally, late afternoon was upon him and everthing became quiet and still. Some movement caught his eye, a doe was moveing towards his stand. Then the glimps of some horn, a buck was on her.........this was the one! Bill grabbed his bow and moved into position anticipating the shot. It took less than four minutes but seemed like four hours for the buck to come into range. Finally, at 35 yards Bill drew back his bow while some light snow started to fall again. Releasing his arrow he watched it pass through on taget.....done deal!! The buck ran less than 40 yards and crashed! Now the excitement of closing the deal sets in and he takes a few minutes before climbing out of his stand to retrieve his buck. This fantastic 7x7 whitetail green scored just over 186 inches!! Again, we want to thank all of our bow hunters for hunting with Whitetail Xtreme and look forward to having you all in camp again! With bow season coming to a close soon, we can't wait to see what our gun hunters will put on the ground!!!
