Public meetings tonight (Tuesday) to discuss hunting/trapping changes

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

March 6th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Iowans have a chance tonight (Tuesday) to express their opinions about several proposed changes in hunting and trapping regulations for next fall. Perhaps the biggest change would apply to deer hunters. Iowa Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Bureau Chief Dale Garner says some areas of the state have too many deer, but other areas have dropped below or near department goals. “We would like to reduce the antlerless tags to stabilize the herd,” Garner said.

The proposed changes involve shortening the length of the January deer hunting season, eliminating the November antlerless season altogether and changing the early muzzleloader season to reduce the harvest in the antlerless portion of the deer herd. The proposals are meant to satisfy the concerns of hunters who believe deer reduction efforts have gone too far. The DNR estimates deer numbers in Iowa are down 30% compared to a high mark in 2006. Iowa hunters, during the recent 2011-12 deer hunting seasons, killed 121,407 deer — down 4.5% from the previous year. Changes are proposed for waterfowl hunting and trapping as well.

“We’re looking to potentially increase quotas for both otters and bobcats,” Garner said. “For migratory birds, we have an opportunity to possibly add a (third) zone to the state, which will impact us for four years, so this is a chance for people to think about what that might do.” The possible changes will be discussed during public meetings tonight from 6 to 9 p.m. at 18 locations across the state. The list of possible changes is available online at http://www.iowadnr.gov/Portals/idnr/uploads/Hunting/proposed_changes2012.pdf

In our area, the public meetings will be held in: Carroll, at the Carroll High School; in Council Bluffs, at Abraham Lincoln High School; in Creston, at the Creston High School, and in Onawa, at the Onawa-West Monona Junior/Senior High School.

Chiefs Receiver Dwayne Bowe Gets Franchise Tag

Sports

March 5th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs have made Dwayne Bowe their franchise player, keeping the impact wide receiver off the free-agent market this off season. Kansas City made the move less than an hour before Monday’s deadline, even though it had long been expected. Bowe is guaranteed a salary of about $9.5 million next season, though the Chiefs have indicated they would like to sign him to a long-term deal. Bowe could still field offers from other teams, but the Chiefs would have the right to match. If they decline, they would lose Bowe but receive two first-round draft picks. Bowe had 81 catches for 1,159 yards and five touchdowns last season, even though Kansas City struggled with injuries to quarterback Matt Cassel and running back Jamal Charles. Bowe had 72 catches for 1,162 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2010, when he made the Pro Bowl.

Iowa Offensive Coordinator Davis to Merge Old, New

Sports

March 5th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Greg Davis spent 13 seasons calling the plays at Texas in a league famous for innovative attacks. Now Davis is coordinating the offense for Iowa, often seen as the epitome of conservative Big Ten football. Davis says the plan will be to merge the best of both worlds to create a system that can work for the Hawkeyes. Davis, the former offensive coordinator under Mack Brown at Texas, met with the media Monday for the first time since taking over as the Hawkeyes offensive coordinator for Ken O’Keefe Davis says he and coach Kirk Ferentz have discussed blending philosophies to create a system unique to Iowa.
