Back in 2012-2013 Nebraska estimated they lost up to 80% of their deer herd to an EHD outbreak that devastated the Whitetail and Mule Deer population. Since then the deer herds have been on the rebound with great results.

October 1st sparks the opening of the anticipated Iowa archery season. In 2013 it didn't take our good friend, Chip Hughes, long to fill his Iowa tag. This impressive 160" class whitetail walked into Chip's sites at 10 yards on the first day of his hunt. For non residents, getting an archery tag is a long awaited dream with archery permits taking up to 4 years to draw. Iowa holds some of the best managed and mature whitetail populations in the world.
