FWIW, I have been a landowner for 20'ish years and I am not sure if I have ever even taken 2 bucks in a year, but I am sure that I have never taken 3. I know many other LO's in a similar spot...I really don't think cutting the number of bucks allowed per year would have any meaningful impact...but that is just my opinion.For me, not at all. One buck a year is fine for me, that would not bother me one bit. I've been in IA my whole life and have never shot more than one buck in a fall. For me its the dream of one day owning my own piece of ground. You open things up to NR and rec prices will undoubtedly go up and push that dream even further down the road. It will also make access to private ground much more difficult for residents.
That being said...the many people that I know who have moved to Iowa related to deer hunting, did so to be able to experience the rut, with a bow in hand, and have a good chance at a mature/big buck. Something that is largely missing from so many other states.
