To get an any sex tag was like the Golden Ticket to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. That meant that you could shoot a doe if that is all you saw. If you shot a buck then you would tag it with someones buck only tag and then all of you would continue hunting. I can remember out of a family group of 10 or 11 you might only get 8 tags and 6 of those would be bucks only. Back then it was a great season if you harvested a deer ( any deer) so you might only get to use 3 or 4 of those tags but the any sex almost always went on a doe, and the meat was kind of divided up between every one. Now party hunting means a chance to kill multiple bucks if you can get some one to tag them. One big question I have always have had is about possession. The DNR regs say that the deer is considered in the possession of the persons whose tag is on it. How then can another person transport that deer, which is in another hunter's possession? If an out of state hunter kills a buck and has a resident tag it for him, how can the NR transport someone else's buck across many state lines? That doesn't seem right to me!

Party hunting really isn't much of a hunt anyway...its kind of like hunting for people with no woodsmanship, ethics, etc.

My guess is some people don't party hunt because they can't find enough people who can stand spending five days walking around the woods with them.

I'm taking my 14 year old son this weekend and have 2 tags in my pocket. I dont even plan on pulling the trigger just let him shoot them up. I have my fun with the bow! Thats party hunting and I dont see anything wrong with it.IowaChiro theres sheds and garages all over this state that you wouldnt make it out of this saturday night with that attitude.

I definitely think you need to consider this statement before you get all high and mighty and think that you are Mr. Ethical and know the difference between whats poaching and what is not. Please read...

As long as your buddy is fine with tagging the buck you shot there is no problem with it. Its his buck tag so its his right to do with it what he wants. Not everybody has the same style of hunting. Just because you don't party hunt doesn't mean its bad or wrong. People who party hunt should make sure before the hunt what their tag situation is. I know i wouldn't put my buck tag on somebody's buck if all they had was a doe tag. Some people might be fine with it but i'm not. Iowa isn't the only state to allow party hunting. Wisconsin is another one around here that does.

Try standing tall in a timber with shots being fired in every direction while still trying to pick out the deer you are going to shoot. Then you call call someone a pussy. If you want to give it a try in my group I would love to bring you along...

Some people obviously aren't intelligent enough to know that you can "party hunt" while sitting in a stand with not a single soul closer than a 15 minute drive to their stand. Party hunting has nothing to do with groups or drives or pushing timber. Where does skill or ethics enter into the picture? Calling other legal hunters Pussies is usually done by the same kind of people who never bother to identify them selves in their bios and do things anonymously like highly skilled poachers, and who want to stir the pot.

Default I take it back

Let me rephrase..people who chase big bucks during shotgun 1, shotgun 2, and muzzleloader season....who have groups of 12 guys pushing, those guys suck, and really I don't get how they feel any "pride" about the bucks they kill that way.
