(DES MOINES) Licenses are on sale for Iowa’s three day November antlerless deer season Nov. 25, 26 and 27. November antlerless season licenses are valid only on private land in the 42 counties were the antlerless quota has not filled.
Party hunting is allowed and all hunters must wear blaze orange. Hunting hours are one half hour before sunrise to one half hour after sunset. For a listing of counties with antlerless licenses available, visit the DNR website.
All deer taken must be reported using the harvest reporting system by midnight the day after the deer is recovered. Accurately reporting the harvest is an important part of Iowa’s deer management program and plays a vital role in managing deer populations and future hunting opportunities.
For hunters with Internet access, the online harvest reporting is the easiest way to register the deer. Hunters can report their deer online at www.iowadnr.gov, by calling the toll free reporting number 1-800-771-4692, or at any license vendor.
