Dan’s Report for 11/9

It’s official here in the upper Midwest: We are in the lockdown phase. I’ve also
received confirmation from Charles Alsheimer that the same thing is happening in western
New York. It does seem that southern areas in this region are a bit behind us (maybe
a week).

I received a great report from Iowa from regular D&DH contributor Matt Harper
yesterday. Matt arrowed a hog-bodied buck that tips the scales at 240 pounds (see
pic below). The mainframe 10-pointer will easily net P&Y; grossing in the mid-130s.

D&DH Publisher Brad Rucks also downed a tremendous deer on Wednesday. He will
be posting pics soon, so be sure to check back. It is a mainframe 10-point with three
extra points (double G-2s and one double G-3). The buck grossed in the 140s, but it
has more than 40 inches of mass!

    Dominick: You are correct. "Lockdown" is the 24-48-hour period when a doe is in estrus.Posted by: Dan Schmidt
