    Iowa Hang: November 11-13 YRSF

    Lets do this. November 11-13th at the Yellow River State Forest
    Cut and Paste from previous Iowa Hang post.
    Yellow River is a beautiful little forest, a few miles from the Mississippi in NE Iowa. I have hung at all the back country sights but Brown's Hollow would probably be the best for a group hang, although Camp John Schultz is my favorite, albeit dry, site. It has 25 miles of hiking trails, public water at the ranger station and information station. The back country sites (4 of them) are free. I think the pay sites are 9 bucks a night but I have never used them.
    I have hiked here many times in the last couple years and it is an ideal weekend hike. I have used Yellow River as my testing ground for my gear before taking it on the longer hikes on the SHT.

    I have that weekend off, but since it's during hunting season I may not be able to make it. It all depends on whether or not I filled my tags yet. I'll keep an eye on this thread to see about scheduling. Regardless, hope everyone has fun.

    Wish I could be in two places at once. Great minds must think alike. We're having a Texas Hang that same weekend, so we'll share the same sunset cross country.

    killing more cute coyotes this year???


    I might be interested in this hang
    When it seems like the night will last forever
    And there's nothing left to do but count the years
    When the strings of my heart start to sever
    And stones fall from my eyes instead of tears
    I will walk alone by the black muddy river
    And dream me a dream of my own
    -Jerry

    This is a good possibility for my brother, myself and possibly a couple of friends.

    If one decides to take a nap under my deer stand again... then no. I will wait it out because of how crappy I felt about it last year.
    Never again...
    NEVER AGAIN!

    Gotcha..November 11-13. I will mark my calendar. Doody- are you still up for a short jaunt over there next weekend? I assume that Mojoe is still heading over. It would be a good oportunity for me to give my gear a dry run before it gets colder. Perhaps there are others that are still available for a smaller gathering.
