    My buddy moved to Iowa a few years ago. He just bagged a big 12 point weighing 293# live weight. And he says his "cousin's friend" got a huge non-typical, 238". Good luck!!!!

    Do you need 3 points? I have 2 points currently along with my dad and wondering if we will draw with 3 points next year?

    Depends where you plan to hunt. Some zones you can draw with 2, some you cannot.

    Definitely depends on the zone and the season. I just wanted to make sure.

    Are you leasing, doing public, or an outfitter?

    I have two and would love to team up with someone but I’m getting married in fall 2018 so that’s out. If you push back until 2019 I’m interested.

    DIY type hunt. Either knock on doors, public land or lease. I have a few leads for unit 9.
     
  10. I would concentrate on zones 4, 5 or 6. South central to south east Iowa is the best whitetail hunting this country has to offer. That’s why it usually takes 4 pts to draw. Once in a blue moon someone gets lucky and draws with 3 pts. Before I became a resident my last tag took 4pts for zone 6.

    johnhunter247 is spot on 4 5 and 6 probably the best area in the country to hunt. I hunted private this year zone 5 with 3 points most years it takes 4 to draw. I'm hearing mixed about public though some say a good buck is doable with the chance for a booner others say the locals hunt it heavy since many have lost their spots from outfitters, leasing, and super wealthy buying up farms.

    I have 3 pts as well. I hunted public in Iowa in 2014 and can't wait to get back. Might be interested in going. I would like to get down there in the spring time to do some scouting.

    No, I want to go with my bow. Zones 4-5 seem to be the only area that your not guaranteed with 3 pts.
