If you receive the IA DNR emails they sent out an email a couple weeks back about the confiscation auction and that it was being held in Omaha and operated by a Nebraska auctioneer. Seemed odd to me so I shot a text off to the listed phone number to inquire as to why. Response was very quick and was a good explanation. The representative was very nice and explained it was a bid process and that’s who had won the bid. I shared my thought that it should be an Iowa company that is the auctioneers and it should be held in Iowa in the future. Sounds like a lot of folks and maybe someone with some clout had the same feeling and let them know as it looks like they’ve at least changed the location. I’m not sure on the auctioneer side of it though.
