    Just wondering if anyone here is from Iowa and might answer a few questions about non-resident deer hunting in Iowa. I've been phesant hunting in Iowa for the past 2 years and am dying to get up there and do some bowhunting. If anyone could help me please let me know. Season is just around the corner and i'm getting a little itch.:thumbsup:

    Sorry I haven't gotten back earlier, but work has been terrible this last week. First, I am of course a non-resident without a drawn permit, can I still buy a tag to hunt does over the counter? Second, I have read about the holiday hunt for non-resident hunters, is this just for muzzleloading or can I bowhunt during this season?

    I would love to do a little hunting up that way this winter if at all possible. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Nonresident Holiday Antlerless Season** Dec. 15 - Jan. 2, 2006
    **Licenses will be sold first-come-first served until quota is filled, or the last day of the season for which the license is valid, whichever comes first. That is over the counter say at wal-mart.

    If the quota of nonresident Antlerless-Only licenses is
    not filled, hunters that do not have a nonresident deer
    license may purchase an Antlerless-Only license for the
    holiday season. Licenses may be purchased over the
    counter through any ELSI license agent beginning Dec.
    15, 2005. Holiday Deer Licenses will not be sold online
    or through the telephone ordering system.
    Licenses will be valid from Dec. 24, 2005, through Jan.
    2, 2006. A muzzleloader, bow or handgun may be used (see
    “Legal Weapons” on page 2). A nonresident hunting license
    and habitat fee are also required.
