    Sounds like people that want to urban hunt need to attend the next meeting to voice their opinion.

    It won’t matter, their mind is made up and anybody for an urban hunt would be called as the minority.

    When White Buffalo sharp shoots, the meat is processed for the local food bank. Are they going to test for CWD?

    Above is the link for the last Iowa City Council meeting. Pages 244-245 are about the City’s dealings with the NRC.

    That city council needs some turnover.

    Utopia and reality tend to clash.

    As does the Johnson County Board of Supervisors, but with Iowa City being the voting base, anybody without a D next to their name on the ballot doesn’t stand a chance.

    I don't know the answer to that, but my sense is that it would be hard to get permission on enough adjoining ground to really get any momentum going.

    You might try Hickory Hill Park, though I have never set foot on it and would guess it gets pounded.

    If you want to spend $100, you can join Harvest Preserve to access their ground. Big herd with some decent bucks I’ve seen from the road. Not sure I’d tell them you wanna shed hunt, though.

    Sounds like the DNR really isnt wanting to give them any other option than the proven method. Urban bow hunting has worked well in all the Cities that have implemented them and the DNR makes money selling tags.

    I caught the news story on KCRG last night. One of the councilpeople (How do you like my gender neutral reference?) complained about a group that is lobbying for hunting. Well, there isn't a mechanism for the Natural Resources Commission to be lobbied. It isn't the legislature, it is 7 people appointed by the Governor and approved by the Senate. The Commission is gender balanced and party balanced by rule.

    If by "lobbied" he means concerned CITIZENS contacting the Commissioners then he should not use the term lobbied. That denotes that a group or groups are paying a professional lobbyist to promote their cause and agenda. It just doesn't work that way.

    I read the letter that was linked by JNRBRONC. If you care to read it the two pager is clear at the very end of the document so be ready to scroll through some stuff. In that letter Iowa City states they followed the NRC's recommendation to get input from the citizens (remember IC is a sanctuary city so you don't have to be a citizen of the city or the county or the state or even the nation to comment). Anybody in the area ever see this?

    Also in the letter it discusses sterilization of deer and how the NRC passed rules preventing the practice. I've always wondered about that and now I know. Look for legislation to be introduced, maybe yet this year with some political horseplay it can still be done, by Representative Mary Mascher and Senator Joe Bolkum in regards to making laws that would allow it. Once again an effort to chip away at the NRC and DNR's ability to manage hunting.

    I moved to Iowa City in 1978 to attend the University of Iowa as a nontraditional student. I went to an orientation session and the person (again gender neutral) said "Welcome to Iowa City, the mecca of liberalism in the Midwest". Truer words were never spoken.

    I believe all of the University land would be open to shed hunting. There are a lot of deer around Carver Hawkeye and back toward the golf course. They have a lot of ground on the west side between Melrose, Mormon Track, Camp Cardinal Road, the railroad tracks and 1st Ave. A map of the campus and some google earth might help.

    Most deer die from the stress if you try to relocate them or sterilize them, according to what I have read.
