November Deer Hunt Begins Friday

Ag/Outdoor, Sports

November 23rd, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says hunters can still purchase a deer tag in many counties for the November antlerless hunt that begins on Friday. D-N-R state deer biologist, Tom Litchfield, says it the season is available in 41 counties. “It has mixed popularity throughout the state, some hunters really like it, and some hunters hate it,” Litchfield says. The season was added as a temporary season to take a few extra antlerless deer. The number of antlerless tags available in each county depends on the deer population.

He says the objective established in 2003 was to return the deer herd to levels of the mid to late 1990′s, and as counties reach those goals, then it takes less of a doe harvest to maintain the numbers. Shotguns, handguns, muzzleloaders and bows may be used. There are some special rules that apply to this hunt. Litchfield says the licenses are only valid on private land as that is where the bulk of the remaining “high density” deer populations are. Litchfield says there are still some areas that need to drop the deer herd numbers.

He says from approximately south-central Iowa into south-western Iowa into the Loess Hills and scattered counties in central Iowa. Litchfield says there are some counties in southeast Iowa that could be hunted, but the need isn’t there like it has been in the past. He expects the overall deer harvest to be down five to six percent this year. Hunters reported taking just over 127-thousand deer in all hunts last year — which was down about seven percent. The November season ends Sunday (November 26). The regular shotgun deer season will begin in December.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) – Seth Tuttle scored 14 points on 7-of-9 shooting, and Northern Iowa never trailed Tuesday in beating Western Carolina 59-39 as part of the South Padre Invitational. Tuttle was the only player in double figures for the Panthers (3-1), who led by as many as 35 points. Jake Koch had nine points and nine rebounds, plus four blocks, three assists and three steals. Harouna Mutombo led Western Carolina (2-3) with 21 points, and Trey Sumler had 10, but they were the extent of their team’s offense. The Catamounts shot just 30 percent (14 for 47) from the field. Northern Iowa scored its last points on a three-point play by Tyler Lange with 7:20 to play. Western Carolina then went on a 15-0 run, with all the points scored by Mutombo and Sumler, to close the game. The Catamounts’ 39 points were the fewest allowed by Northern Iowa since the 2002-03 season.

Iowa State Holds Off Northern Colorado 90-82

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Senior Chris Allen scored a season-high 23 points and Iowa State held off Northern Colorado 90-82 on Tuesday. Melvin Ejim added 12 points and Tyrus McGee, Chris Babb and Scott Christopherson each chipped in with 11 for the Cyclones (3-1), who set a new school record by hitting 16 3-pointers. Iowa State needed nearly all of those 3-point shots, as the winless Bears made the Cyclones work for their second straight win. Northern Colorado (0-4) got within 85-79 in the final 90 seconds, but Babb grabbed an errant 3-pointer and Allen hit three free throws to seal a win that was closer than expected. Tim Huskisson had 16 points to lead Northern Colorado, which also gave Northern Iowa trouble before losing 78-69 on Sunday.

Iowa RB McCall Suspended for Nebraska Game

November 23rd, 2011 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa freshman running back Mika’il McCall has been suspended for Friday’s regular-season finale at 22nd-ranked Nebraska for violating team rules. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz wouldn’t elaborate Tuesday on why he’s keeping McCall from making the trip. He hasn’t decided whether McCall would also be suspended from any bowl game. McCall rushed for 61 yards in the season opener for the Hawkeyes (7-4, 4-3 Big Ten) before breaking his ankle. He returned for last week’s 31-21 win over Purdue, rushing for four yards on two carries. Ferentz says little-used junior Jason White will serve as the backup to Marcus Coker against the Huskers (8-3, 4-3).

Iowa QB Vandenberg Puts Together Strong 2011

November 23rd, 2011 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa junior quarterback James Vandenberg has quietly put together one of the best seasons in school history entering Friday’s regular season finale at 22nd-ranked Nebraska. Vandenberg leads the Big Ten with 238.5 yards passing per game is second only to Wisconsin’s Russell Wilson with 23 touchdown passes. Vandenberg’s also thrown just five interceptions while completing 60.9 percent of his throws. Though Vandenberg has often been overshadowed by receiver Marvin McNutt and running back Marcus Coker, he’s been the leader of one of Iowa’s best offenses in recent memory. McNutt says Vandenberg has provided strong leadership this season and has developed into great player. The Hawkeyes (7-4, 4-3 Big Ten) face the Huskers (8-3, 4-3) for the first time in 11 seasons and for the first time as Big Ten opponents.

World Series Champion Cardinals Get Red Carpet Treatment

November 23rd, 2011 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – For the third time since the St. Louis Cardinals’ improbable World Series championship run, David Freese got the red carpet treatment. Life has definitely changed for the player who emerged as a star after winning MVP of the World Series and NL championship series. He represented the team at the premiere of the World Series video Tuesday night. Since Game 7, Freese has chatted with Jay Leno and Ellen DeGeneres, served as guest presenter at the Country Music Awards and hung out at a GQ magazine party, the latter two also with red carpet entrances he tried to duck. Before getting to his seat at the Peabody Opera House on Tuesday, Freese amiably shuffled down a receiving line doing several interviews. Teammate Kyle McClellan also attended the video premiere, although this was his first red carpet experience. Before watching the video, the reliever said he’d always remember the victory lap to celebrate with fans after Game 7.
