    Been downhill since your own resident video superstars, you know who they are, show cased the state in the name of money/endorsements.

    The media tag “asks” them to do it!!! Put in place to “promote Iowa”. U get a tag.... u need to show proof that you are promoting iowa & reaching large audiences. So- as a tax payer, citizen & voter- our state government is funding/encouraging the promotion of the state’s deer hunting. The big unknown great bucks that exist in Iowa- no one knows so gotta keep marketing! It makes zero sense but that’s a huge part of what happened. & look at how drawing tags has got longer at same time media tag program keeps going.

    The good news- we’ve fended off most of the destructive stuff that other states have adopted. I remember when IL used to be good. It sucks (yes, new world record just announced from IL) & that’s a state where highlighting it THEN exploiting for $ Have run it down the tubes in 10-15 years. Iowa isn’t there but we are a few regulation changes away from being there...... obvious “big deal” reg changes would be the end of a great thing if/when it happens.
    Ya- ‘90’s was NR draw. Every other year was a guarantee Crazy what it’s like now.
