Iowa hunters have the opportunity next month to hunt antlerless deer in two north Iowa counties.
For the January antlerless season to be held, eligible counties had to have at least 100 unsold resident antlerless deer tags on the third Monday of December. The DNR says Allamakee and Winneshiek are among five counties in the state that met the threshold to begin antlerless deer hunting on January 11th, 2022..
Hunters may purchase licenses for the January antlerless season wherever licenses are sold starting today (Dec. 20) and use shotguns, handguns, muzzleloaders, bows or rifles to harvest deer. All other deer hunting rules remain in effect. The season ends on Jan. 23, 2022.
The DNR says almost 1,300 resident antlerless licenses are available in Allamakee County as of December 20th, with almost 800 available in Winneshiek County.
Also approved for the antlerless deer hunting season in January are Appanoose, Decatur and Wayne counties.
