Iowa State hosts Kansas


October 3rd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

Iowa State opens Big 12 play at home against Kansas today (Saturday). The Cyclones were winless in conference play last season but will have a chance to stop that slide against a winless Jayhawk team. Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads says the Cyclones are an improved team despite a 1-2 record.

ISU lost at Kansas a year ago but Rhoads says revenge is not on their mind. Kansas is 0-3 after a loss to Rutgers. Kick-off from Jack Trice Stadium in Ames begins at 11-a.m.

Iowa, No. 19 Wisconsin seek to get head start in Big 10 West


October 2nd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Tuneup time is over in the Big Ten. If unbeaten Iowa wants to set the tone in West Division, there is no better day to start than Saturday and the showdown with No. 19 Wisconsin in the league opener for both teams.

The Badgers are the defending division champion, but their hopes for another first-place finish have already taken a hit following the injury to starting tailback Corey Clement. The Hawkeyes (4-0) and Badgers (3-1) will meet for the 89th time in the series.

Essex Woman Wins Canadian Dream Hunt After Taking Hunter Education Course Online

Ag/Outdoor, Sports

October 2nd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources reports Paige Stoaks, of Essex, will be spending three days in an Ontario marsh on a waterfowl dream hunt later this month, thanks in part to a thoughtful gift she received from her boyfriend last Christmas.

In order to use her new bow to go hunting, Stoaks had to complete hunter education and by taking her online class at HUNTERcourse.com, the Page County woman was automatically entered into the dream hunt drawing. While her first deer hunting trip didn’t yield success, she is hopeful her first waterfowl hunt will end with ducks in the bag. Stoaks and her father, Brian, will leave Oct. 13 from Omaha for a guided waterfowl hunt by St. Lawrence Outfitters from Lansdowne, Ontario.

Stoaks has been working to improve her shot in preparation for the trip. She says “We’ve been doing some clay pigeons (shooting), adding that she plans to do more target shooting before the hunt. The whirlwind Dream Hunt trip ends Oct. 15.

Students who complete their hunter education requirements at HUNTERcourse.com are automatically entered into the Dream Hunt drawing that selects two students and one instructor each year for a hunt of a lifetime. The other student winner is Derek Ramage, from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and the instructor winner is Dwain Lecoq, from Stony Mountain, Manitoba.

Huntercouse.com is one of two approved online hunter education courses approved by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. To search for an upcoming hunter education course or if 18 years or older and want to begin an online only course, go to www.iowadnr.gov/huntered
