Bruiser IA Beanfield Buck Emerges [Big Buck HIT LIST]

Some lush farm fields. A young hunter armed with a trail camera. When they combine to capture a newcomer buck, our Week 4 winner emerges.

Oh, to be 16 and hoping the bruiser IA beanfield buck you just captured on a trail cam sticks around until bow season. That’s the exciting reality for Iowa’s Kendall Zimmerman, and we’re thinking the odds of that happening are pretty good given its surroundings. For sending in these photos of a brute of an IA buck focused on a lush beanfield, Zimmerman is the Week Four winner of our 2022 Big Buck HIT LIST contest.

The weekly win scores Zimmerman a Wildlife Research Center scent prize package valued at $44.99. It also makes him eligible for our drawing to win a Grand Prize Package valued at more than $630. The Grand Prize includes a wide variety of Wildlife Research Center products and two proven hunting optics from Burris.

Week4 Beanfield Buck

“The enclosed photos of this buck were taken July 9 and 10, in southeast Iowa,” Zimmerman wrote. “Both were taken on the same farm; this area is just off a draw that contains a small pond. As you can see there is a field of beans just off the draw to the left.

“I am also planning on planting a small food plot in the patch of grass just to the right of the photos,” Zimmerman continued. “I don’t think we have got any photos of this guy before, so I’m hoping he stays around until this fall. That’s when I’m planning to head out in bow season and try for him.”
