In 2005 Tim Waldron of Honey Creek Iowa had an encounter with a deer that put him at the top of the Iowa Record Bucks. The photos of Tim's buck speak for themselves. This non-typical bow harvest measured 243 4/8ths inches. Tims Buck is the #3 non-typical bow kill in Iowa and #3 overall in the state records. Tim harvested this huge whitetail in Harrison County Iowa just a few miles from my house near Pisgah Iowa.
Southern Iowa and eastern Iowa get much attention as excellent deer hunting counties. I'll share a secret with you that others don't know. Many have said the next world record buck will come from western Iowa's Loess Hills. The Loess Hills in western Iowa are some of the most rugged terrain, large blocks of timber and a near duplicate of Pike and Adams County Illinois. When you compare Harrison and Monona County in Iowa to Pike and Adams County in Illinois you'll find many similarities....... including huge mature whitetail deer. Read my recent post Iowa's Pike County Equivelent - Monona County Iowa to learn more about this comparison.
Harrison and Monona Counties in Iowa have a combined 114 bucks entered in the record book bucks including 51 from Harrison County and 63 from Monona County. Including your buck in the Iowa records is voluntary so it leads me to wonder just how many have never been submitted!
The best deer hunting in Iowa is in western Iowa. For information on Loess Hills Hunting Properties For Sale visit my website.
