    Deer know that Iowa City is a sanctuary city and they feel safe. Put the fear of humans in them by shooting a few and they might not be so at ease. Keep the hunting pressure on them all bow season long.

    I know. It was hard to type through the tears and constant nose blowing due to high snot flowage.

    I've actually written several, "Dick and Jane Kill Their Pusher Because He Shorted Them On Their Dime Bag" another favorite is "Dick and Jane Share A 40 Of King Cobra And Learn How To Put In A Bag To Keep The Cops From Seeing It" but my all time best seller is "Dick and Jane Do Their Babysitter" the sequel "Dick and Jane Bury Their Babysitter In The Back Yard" didn't sell as well. The reviews said it was too graphic. Oh well.

    I was hired as a consultant on the book. They fired me. I thought they were pussies and they thought I was sick.

    Such misinformation on the site. "Roaming the woods with crossbows". Every urban hunt I am aware of requires bows to be cased in transport to the stand and shots must be from elevated stands.
    Polk/Dallas county has had no safety issues in over 20 years the hunt has been in place and kill 300 to 500 deer each year via bow hunting.
    It works!

    I wonder what they meant by amateurs from “out of town”. That doesn’t sound very inclusive to me. They welcome everyone unless your here from out of town patrolling hickory hill park.

    No such requirement in Muscatine as having bows to be cased in transport walking to the stand.

    Thanks for the clarification. Can you hunt/shoot from the ground?

    Inquire with Blackhawk County Conservation, Polk County, Dallas County representives along with the IBA to see if they’d help educate/advocate the Ia City-city council on the benefits of an urban bow hunt. All of the first three mentioned have been very successful at it and with a little help from the IBA’s lobbyist maybe they’d give it more consideration.
