2012 Big Buck "Top 10" - "Iowa Vacation"

Talk about a Team effort!! Matt hauled his family all the way from Central Michigan to his hunting spot in Southern Iowa for a summer vacation. While they spent time at the pool, he was busy setting stands, seeking additional permission and scouting as much as possible.

After a night out with the kids trick-or-treating, Matt set out to Iowa alone. On the afternoon of November 1st he was finally in the stand. He hardly had time to cool off from the long walk in when he heard a stick break behind him. A doe was coming his way and a nice buck was right behind her.

Matt made a perfect double lung shot at 40 yards. The Mathews Helim and G5 broadheads did the job!

This main frame 10 has 13 total points and scored just over 171" gross. Congratulations Matt!
