Absolutely no doubt!!!!! Going back in my head.... I think MO probably has 5 times the amount of habitat that Iowa does. MN & WI for sure do!!!! Those 3 states would be lights out, game over, blow iowa out of water IF they moved rifles to Dec 1!!!!
Yup! The north MO hardwoods are my favorite.
To add to the rise in cost - I just applied for MT and WY elk, and those tags were going to be a few hundred dollars more than what an IA buck tag would be, even after the hikes. I'd rather see higher prices (both R and NR) vs increasing tag numbers. Some people might disagree but the damage that'd be done by increasing tag #s would be bad.
