" I was freaking out. I
was scared we weren't
going to make it home.
I thought I was going
to deliver a baby on the
side of the road. "

went into labor not long after harvesting the deer. (WGFD photo)

" The adrenaline I think kind of jumpstarted some stuff. That's our best guess, " she
said.
With help from family members, the
Iversons hung the deer and discussed getting it shoulder mounted. But as that process
wrapped up, Courtney told her husband they
needed to head back to Casper because she was
going into labor.
" My husband did 85 to 90 mph the whole
way back to Casper with his lights flashing. I'm
surprised we didn't get pulled over. "
Courtney was determined to return to
Casper where her doctors could deliver
the baby.

" I was freaking out. I was scared we weren't
going to make it home. I thought I was going
to deliver a baby on the side of the road, " Timothy said.
The Iversons made it to Casper and the
hospital, but the baby wasn't ready to enter
the world yet. In fact, the hospital sent the
Iversons home.
" I wasn't happy with that, " Courtney said.
But the Iversons weren't home long.
" Maybe an hour after we got sent home, my
wife couldn't walk out to the jeep, " Timothy
said. " We ended up having the baby about an
hour after returning to the hospital. "
Jackson Tyler Iverson was born at about

		

3:30 a.m. Oct. 21, and joined his older brother,
Lucas James Duane, as part of the Iverson
family. Mom, dad and the boys are doing well.
Timothy said he and Courtney talked about
the chance of her going into labor during this
hunt. They thought it would be a cool story
and laughed it off. That cool story became a
reality.
With two young children and Timothy
starting a new job recently, life has been crazy
for the Iversons. This will make for a good story
for years to come, but when asked to reflect
on it now, Timothy simply said: " We realize
how blessed we are. "
