Where around Iola do you hunt? I hunt directly North of Iola, not many practice QDM around me, but that's fine with me (even though I do). Keeps me interested and keeps me in the field. I see plenty of bucks. Many hunters don't watch the wind/scent, etc...and those big bucks move miles and miles during the rut. I feel confident even though I'm not in a huge QDM area, I still reap the rewards from QDM from all around NW Waupaca County, NE Portage Count, SE Marathon County and SW Shawano County. If you want serious QDM, hit up the Tigerton/Big Falls/Marion area...But your Iola area is still plenty fine if you ask me.
It's good for the soul when there's not a soul in sight.
