Drake Rousselow from La Porte City will receive the 2014 Trophy Buck Print Award at the 40th Annual Eastern Iowa Sportshow March 14 or 15 at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls. This award recognizes trophy bucks taken in Iowa and registered with the DNR for the 2013/2014 deer-hunting season. Drake harvested a deer from Fayette County. It scored 142 6/8 points in the Bow – Typical category.
Nearly 400 Iowans harvested a trophy buck during the 2013-2014 Iowa deer-hunting season and registered it with the Department of Natural Resources. To qualify, a buck’s rack must meet or exceed specific minimum scores as determined by the Department of Natural Resources.
Craig Hemsath from La Porte City caught a 19.5 inch, Rainbow Trout in Fayette county and will receive the 2014 Iowa Big Fish Angler Award. Trophy fish awards are given by the DNR for every type of game fish found in Iowa waters. These range from trout, bass, panfish, perch, carp, and sheephead varieties. When caught, the fish must be weighed on registered scales and be certified by a witness. This data along with a witness’s signature is then mailed to DNR for recording.
The Sportshow is scheduled for March 13-15 at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls. Hunting interests at the show include hunting outfitters, equipment, seminars, and antler scoring. Other exhibits include boats, RVs, fishing camps, resorts, tourism, tackle, camping, and outdoor exhibits. Continuous fishing and hunting seminars will run throughout the show. More features include live trout fishing, BB gun range, paintball range and antler scoring and whitetail display. Detailed show information can be found at www.iowashows.com.
