Notes for August from the Iowa DNR
July 27th, 2011 by Brett Johnson
The annual August roadside survey of upland game will begin August 1. Staff with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources will be driving through different areas of Iowa looking for pheasants, rabbits quail and partridge. The survey tracks population trends and provides reliable predictions of the fall pheasant harvest. The survey concludes on August 15.
Also anyone interested in deer hunting this fall may begin purchasing licenses for the upcoming season on August 15. Season dates and license quotas were approved at the July meeting of the Natural Resource Commission of the Iowa DNR. Licenses are sold at nearly 900 locations across the state. Locally, you can get your license at the Cass County Courthouse. For more locations visit: www.iowadnr.gov.
