    NR party hunting to be eliminated

    This is the fear I have. The outfitters are going to apply even more pressure to get tags designated just for their disposal. They have already been trying for such tags. NRLO also will add to their push, but they have a more legitimate claim to access the resource

    NR party hunting to be eliminated

    Correct that deer drives and party hunting heavily overlap. In our group, when someone tags a buck they push for the remainder of the drives instead of blocking/shooting. In our group, if we have enough deer by Saturday, we are done and don't hunt Sunday/Monday. And, we know our target number...

    NR party hunting to be eliminated

    You are very much confusing party hunting (cross tagging) with group hunting (deer drives). A dozen untagged deer is 100% NOT party hunting seeing as how they are without tags. It may be the result of deer drives or it may be the result of road hunting, bottom line is no tag is POACHING.

    NR party hunting to be eliminated

    The DNR didn't make the change, why would they see a firing? Our group has had two NR doe tag hunters the past decade. I don't see them changing their plans for attending again this year. Consider those two tags sold for as long as they are offered. They will, however, pass on a buck now and...

    FOREST RESERVE - why repealing the law is devastating!

    Consider it fully passed and signed. It's just a matter of time once it has passed one chamber. And threat to the governor's agenda, like the AEA bill and they meet in rooms before the next view and say "get in line" and pass this or "be primaried out next time"

    FOREST RESERVE - why repealing the law is devastating!

    Public school education funding is another thing you want democrats leading. Policy, however, prevents Democrats from even sniffing the opportunity to do so in the foreseeable future. The Republican model of asking public schools to do more with less has taken Iowa from #1 in the nation to...
