    Well, if you know 6 people who didn’t apply, I assume with points, exponentially I would think that opportunity would have increased for those who did apply with fewer or no points. Doesn’t appear to be the case. I recall looking at left over licenses last year for the gun seasons and there were more than this year. Idk.

    Congrats Ryan. I’d wait til about Nov 5 thru 15 if you can. My humble 2 cents for a fellow Pennsylvanian after going to Iowa many years.

    Yes ,but more like someone might draw eith 3 points instead or 4 or 2 points instead of 3, zone depending. Reverse point creep if you will. That is just my hypothesis. Could be wrong.

    Good luck to all who drew. I think last year there were almost 30 leftover gun tags in zone 9.

    I did not draw in zone 9 with 2 points. Less then 10 years ago I drew with 1 point. Does anyone have a link with the draw stats?

    Iowa Bowhunters Association is going to be doing a silent auction via Email on our Iowa DNR Conservation Tag - allows you to get any tag in any zone - if interested in bidding on this please message me with your email address.

    You NR’s go back to ur own states!!! Stay outta here!!! :mad::eek::D
    Congrats to those that drew. SO FAR - this season is looking better than last several. If u get caught in EHD madness or are hunting in EHD wipe out zone of last year - some exception. But looking to be a great year. Hope y’all shoot some old bruisers.

    My area in Iowa was hit pretty good with EHD in 2012 but was spared for the most part last year from what I heard. I pray that the entire state is spared this year . I feel for you guys who have to worry about it every summer. Thanks for the well wishes all. Sligh, when you say this season is looking better than the last several, is that is terms of growth, numbers, weather, crops, dead deer (EHD)?

    Warren, eastern & northern Clarke, Madison river corridors. Def lots past that, but that was the epicenter.

    Points are unaffected - you maintain all your points if you buy this tag - my contact at the DNR confirmed that
