Iowa’s Second Shotgun Deer Hunting Season Ends Sunday

Iowa’s second shotgun deer hunting season comes to a close this Sunday, with the late muzzleloader hunting period following from December 20th to January 10th.

Iowa DNR Conservation Officer for Howard and Chickasaw counties, Marc Waterlander, says if you haven’t yet ventured out for shotgun deer hunting, don’t be surprised if ammo is a little tricky to find.

Waterlander adds that while safety is certainly stressed before and during your hunting, don’t let your guard down after your hunt is finished.

Waterlander also advises hunters to pay attention to weather forecasts before heading out for your hunt and dress accordingly, and be sure to include apparel in blaze-orange color such as a jacket, vest, coat, sweatshirt, sweater, shirt or coveralls.
