In MN (1 buck state) you can get an extra doe permit if you own over (I think) 80 acres. That also comes with the caveat that you're supposed to allow the public to hunt your land if they ask. Absolute insanity.It just seems hypocritical to me when someone says we need to make iowa a 1 buck state, except for me - I get 2 tags. If being a 1 buck state is so great, then let's be a 1 buck state for everyone. What do the other 1 buck states do with land owners?
That being said in over 20 years of hunting iowa, I've shot 2 bucks the same year twice. There have been a few times when I've failed to get one with the bow, but gotten one with a gun, so those years I would now have to go without if we were a 1 buck state. There's also been a lot of years where I haven't gotten a buck period. I get that I'm not the type of hunter that this rule is going after, but as a person that passes way more bucks than they take, I get the short end of the stick.
I'm not a landowner, so I don't count though. I'm just a public land hunter who was a public land hunter before it was cool to be a public land hunter.
All that being said, I wouldn't be totally against this, even if you fancy landowners got 2 tags to my 1.
