YES THOSE PESKY HORNY CRITTERS THAT EAT OUR CATTLE CORN AND SOY BEANS AND EVEN MATE WITH OUR BLACK ANGUS STEERS ON MOONLESS NIGHTS WHEN THE FROST HITS THE PUMPKIN AND ITS TIME FOR DICKEY DUNKEN!!!

T'was a month before Christmas, we needed some luck
Although does were still open, we were out after buck

With the winds from the west, and the sun at our backs
We worked slowly that morning, in search of fresh track

With chilly down below me, Randy covered my right
We all worked the high oak ridge, with nothing in sight

I was all set to softly whistle, to both Chicky and JD
Who were posted up ahead, on their well chosen stands

When I heard a twig snap, to my left in the oak scrub
Where just the morning before, we had found a fresh rub

Standing alert while frozen, with scanning intent eyes
I wasn't at all prepared, for that most pleasant surprise

For she stepped into the clearing, while closely watching her back
I was looking upward and beyond her, when I spotted his rack

It was massive in it's size, gleaming from the mid-morning sun
As I stood spellbound and awe struck, unable to shoulder my gun

That Doe's nose went up then, as she then was testing the wind
As I silently thought to myself Oh No, not again Jack Quinn !

But this time it was different, as I forced down a weak swallow
With that trophy buck in hot pursuit, as she snuck through the hollow

After shouldering my Rem. 740 auto, I peered into its 4X scope
At that 12 pointed true trophy, who was now in a full gaited lope

For he was after his sweetheart, with his busy nose to the ground
When my Remington exploded, ejecting just one single 308 round

For in one split second, his rutting days were all through
For my hands had held steady, and my aim had been true

So early that night, after he was hung up with very great care
Five hunters poured coffees, then we all pulled up camp chairs

Next we all sat trading hunting stories, about both present and past
Telling tales of our Successes, or those days when taking Gas

And that's the best part, about hunting IOWA Whitetail Deer
Both all the memories past, and the hopes for next year !!!

In Response to his post today saying that his JD just finished the annual farm planting is again pure 100% bullshit as below is the Farmers Bible on Planting in effect since 1903 without exception.
Planting vegetable seeds or transplants at the correct time is important for getting the most out of your farms or personal gardens. Knowing your first and last frost dates will help you start your vegetable seeds at the right time.
Iowa is in USDA plant hardiness zones 4-6.
Iowa Last & First Frost Dates

City Last Frost Date First Frost Date
Ames 4/26 10/6
Cedar Rapids 4/30 9/29
Council Buffs 4/21 10/12
Davenport 4/13 10/19
Des Moines 4/25 10/6
Dubuque 4/21 10/6
Iowa City 4/25 10/6
Mason City 4/30 9/29
Waterloo 4/27 10/4
*Based on statistics there is a 10% chance that frost will occur before or after these dates. Watch your local weather for more accurate dates.
Iowa on average has approximately 160 days between the last and first frost. Use the planting schedules above for planting all ninteen annual Iowa vegetation crop harvests with the exception of Cabbages.

It is vital to plant annually no later than May 5th in order to obtain maximum crop yeild percentages.
