Iowa Hunt


Recommended Posts

Looking for 2 people who would be interested in an Iowa gun hunt in Zone 9 (Allamakee Co......#1 Booner county in IA) for this fall. 188 acres of private ground that I will be bow hunting for only 1 week, and would love to split with someone that would like to use it for rest of the season to gun hunt, shed hunt, turkey hunt.....whatever you want for 51 weeks. Serious inquires only. PM me @ seven-one-six-713-3984.

Are tags over the counter for IA or is it with preference points?

Morning.  The tags are a preference point and a draw system.  However, as hard as it is to get a tag to bow hunt, gun hunting is the opposite.  Not a lot of people apply for the gun tags in Iowa (not sure why).  Here are the draw stats from 2021:


As you can see, Zone 9 had a 70% success rate for drawing with 0 points (that means first time people who applied the same year they wanted to hunt) and over 95% with 1 point (that means the second year you put in).  It is very easy to get a gun tag for IA.

Bow hunting on the other hand, takes at least 3 and up to 6 years to grab a tag in the better units.

Hope that helped.
