    I don’t know if they were catching much but there were a ton of boats out below lock and damn #12 in Bellevue last week.  I wasn’t fishing, just driving past.

    Unless there’s a navigable waterway or easement, I’d say yes.  Does this type of land exist in Iowa?

    I highly recommend the Vortex Ranger 1000 or 1500. Unconditional Lifetime Warranty, along with the red LED/LCD display made it a no-brainer for me.

    https://islandviewresort.com Island View Resort on Pelican Lake in Orr, MN was a lot of fun. Northerns and smallies were biting during the week of Memorial Day. Saw a guy catch a 28 or 30 inch walleye, but we never hooked up on one. The kids caught a bunch of crappie and bluegill. It was a lot of fun for everyone.

    It starts with a group discussion at your location. Topics include listing pros and cons of the previous hunting seasons, observations, recommendations, etc. From there it typically goes to group format where each location shares their list of pros and cons with the other locations via ICN video/audio feed. And yeah, it goes about 3 hours

    In the past it has been held using the Iowa Classroom Network (ICN). I’ve never heard of it being streamed live or even recorded and posted to YouTube.

    Most homeowners policies will only cover up to $2500 worth of firearms in a loss and there will often be a limit per item. Liability is another issue. Some Liability policies will exclude firearms entirely. West Bend and Travelers offer additional coverage for both and they’re both “A” rated companies with A.M. Best. Talk to Tim Hartsock at Core Vens Insurance in Clinton. He does insurance for the firearms industry all over the country.

    What types of things are discussed? All hunting/trapping regs? including waterfowl?

    The only thing that would come to mind for me to bring up would be about the possibility of considering high powered rifles for deer hunting in the future. I would ask about that and voice my opinion AGAINST that.

    Other than that, I believe our DNR does a pretty good job with seasons, etc, etc.

    I believe all types of hunting including waterfowl are discussed. However I’m not sure if they included trapping in past years. If you’re happy with the way the DNR is doing things you may want to stop by and voice that opinion in person. Same goes with your opinion on high powered rifles. The more people we get to these meetings the better for us as a whole.

    I wish they had these meetings about fishing…so many fishing regulations have remained unchanged for a long time.

    I’ll ask if they have one. If they don’t, we can recommend that they hold one.

    Not a first choice, because it’s full-sized, but the M&P Sport 2 AR’s look interesting, but they need a new barrel to be silenced, right?

    Still would like a pistol-style with a brace, so it’s small.

    Check out Deadfoot Arms. They’ve got a modified cycling system that drops into and AR and allows the stock to fold and still allow the weapon to be functional. It does this by eliminating the buffer spring and tube. Pair this with a pistol style AR and your overall length is going to be shortened significantly.

    Back to the OP: Where are you located? In the CR area, I’d go talk to Ernie at Cedar Valley Outfitters. Clinton/Quad Cities – Elliott Farro at Farro’s Lead Farm in Low Moor.

    I cannot understand why more people don’t show up to them. It is very easy to sit at the computer and complain about the lousy job the DNR is doing. Or how unfair the laws are to one group over another. Change only comes when people get involved.

    Sorry for the rant but it’s my 2 cents worth.

    I know about a dozen dudes who couldn’t make changes to their schedules because they weren’t aware of it until a week or less out.

    I just hope the official notice comes out a few weeks prior to the event.

    Those are some nice finds. Seeing that many I have to wonder if EHD played a role in any of their deaths. I’d be a little leary of posting pics of dead heads that had been moved without noting you had acquired the proper salvage tags for them. No reason to give the internet co’s stuff to harass you about. Cool post though. Makes me want to get out and do some exploring.

    Cool finds and x2 on the exploring. I would probably wait until after the end of the season on January 10th, though!

    x2… Heading out for my last chance at a deer in the morning.

    Nice deer man. I love the look of his G2s and G3s. Wavy, almost twisted look to them…

    Vortex Ranger 1000 or 1500. Works great, lifetime warranty, and the reticle/display inside is red…much easier to read than the black ones in low light.

    I think most, if not all DNR biologists will accept samples. I know Kurt Kemmerer in eastern Iowa has been collecting from Dubuque to Scott counties for sure.

    x2 for the Turtle Wax kit. I just pulled mine off the shelf in the closet to see if there was a specific model number for you. It’s the Turtle Wax Headlight Lens Restorer. “Heal & Seal Technology Increases Clarity, Brightness & Visibility!” I don’t know about inanimate objects being able to be healed, but I used it on my 2006 Honda Ridgeline back in March. The headlights still looked great right up until I smoked a deer with it on August 2nd. My new Ram doesn’t need it yet, but I’ve got enough left in the kit to do a couple applications. Follow the instructions and you’ll be good to go.

    I was wondering if there are any special areas in iowa that will allow rifle hunting for special seasons or areas of the state and how to go about getting tags etc for it. I am very interested in filling up the freezer with some doe meat this year.

    Read the regs. Always start there, not an internet forum….

    Huh? Dude, this is the exact reason for the site, to share and inform, responses like this is why a lot of folks don’t post, never dis someone asking questions, if you can’t contribute in a positive manner just don’t post.

    Sorry you feel that way. But when it comes to laws and regulations you need to read the regs. Getting the info from an internet forum will result in incorrect and incomplete info. Too many people feel they don’t need to read them or that they never change, which is no good for anyone.

    I get where you’re coming from, and agree Dano, but I for example ask questions here the same as I would if I was hanging out with some buddies in the shop or driveway. I verify in the regs. I think most people agree just looking to be pointed in the right direction.
