It wasn’t easy an easy decision, but I waited until November 10th to begin hunting here in Iowa. Warm weather and south winds for the first 9 days didn’t allow for me to get into the areas that I knew would present me with my best opportunities. A front rolled in late on the 9th and brought with it, north west winds and rain. The radar showed the rain laying up around 12 noon so we sat out the morning and wanted to be in the tree by 11:00 a.m. The rain quit around noon and the action escalated quickly. This buck was the 5th buck we had seen when he cruised past the tree at 2:00. Any doubts that I had about waiting this long to climb in an Iowa tree quickly faded when my tag was gone just 3 hours into my first sit. Forever grateful for the opportunity to chase whitetails in November.
