    I would agree with Iowa also!

    Great bucks Del. Congrats. Being from Ohio I hear a lot about the Kansas and Iowa. I think Ohio is an overlooked big buck factory. We've got the Beatty and the Schumaker bucks to our credit. It's an over the counter tag for non-residents and fairly cheap too. The only problem is that public land is limited.

    Oh, by the way, the "Stay Out of Ohio" comment was a joke. If someone thought I was serious I apologize.

    Today I saw Steve Binkley's 242 inch Iowa non-typical. That deer is a HOG! My hunting buddy is the Taxidermist on that one. He was shot just North of MO. All the guys above make good points. I hunt Kansas and MO. It is hard to choose but Northern MO is very good now. They have quality deer management and a huge herd. Click my name and look at the pic of 2 bucks we shot opening day 08 in Mo. Those are nice but we have seen bigger deer that got away. Five yr ago we would see 3 or 4 bucks and 20 doe. Now we see 10 bucks and 10 does and 5 of those bucks are 8 point or better. The NR tag is cheaper in MO and doe tags are unlimited for only $7 each.

    I'd say all the midwest states: Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, and Wisconsin.

    There are several states that have been known for producing big bucks consistently; Ohio, Illinois, Kansas, and Iowa are some of the most well known. Out of those I would go with Iowa.

    Depends on how big of whitetail you want, Kansas has some good sized deer and a good population, Nebraska has a good popluation but smaller deer than Kansas as far as body size.
