    Thanks Ken –

    Yes, I am a landowner.

    The math was something like this:

    Hunting/Habitat Combo $30
    Landowner Any deer $2
    Landowner Antlerless $2
    Turn-In-Poacher Donate $2
    Convenience Fee $3

    Total $39

    Flyfisher – I do quite a bit of bird hunting off of my land so I need the license for those outings.

    That’s what I was also thinking too, but wasn’t sure. Welcome back to the Tall Corn state!

    After 17 years of buying Non-Resident hunting license and deer tags and spending about $600 a year or so to do it, I just clicked on my first ever purchase of resident hunting license, habitat fee, 1 General deer and 1 Antlerless tag for a grand total of $39. Man that feels good.

    Damn non-residents….if you dont like it just move here :mrgreen:

    If I’m thinking right you are a land owner. And unless you are planning to hunt anywhere other than your own place you don’t need the hunting license or the habitat stamp.

    Ok I went and looked. Since I don’t bow hunt I can’t really say on the bow hunting. But I think bow is separate from the gun seasons just like it is for the resident paid tags. But you can get 4 landowner tags. 1 – $2 general deer, 1 – $2 antlerless, and 2 – $13 antlerless you also have to register your land with the IDNR to qualify to be able to get these deer licenses. If it was the 15th of aug I could tell you the other tags you could get with a general deer tag for the shotgun 1/2 season as I could do a online tag buy and I could see if bow is separate or in addition to gun seasons. You can also buy all the resident paid tags you are entitled to also. But if you don’t get yourself registered with the IDNR for landowner/tenant licenses all you will be able to get are the regular resident paid tags.

    Ok, I haven’t looked at the new hunting guide book for this yr yet, but I’m sure things haven’t changed from last yr for Land Owner/Tenant tags. Land Owners/Tenants are eligible I believe for a anysex bow, an antlerless bow, and then a anysex tag in either the early or late muzzle loader or shotgun one/shotgun two seasons. You have to decide which of the three seasons you want it in as you can only get one. If you choose a anysex in these seasons I don’t believe you can get a antlerless tag for shotgun one or two it would have to be in the late muzzle loader season. I believe you can get a LOT anterless tag for bow, not sure if it would be in the 1st bow or the second bow season or both as I don’t bow hunt. Also you can buy all the paid tags that you are eligible for also.

    1/4 to 1/2 stick of dynamite would probably do the trick…………………

    My answer is yes to all of the op’s questions. Except partridge, we haven’t had those here in swi for eons. And I see all of the same critters regularly that the op sees. But I have no affiliation to any other than I have been enrolled in the dep program for many yrs, well up until last deer season.

    So what does that make me? I am a farmer, outstanding in my fields at times………………… Oh and the op didn’t mention anything about rabbits, I’ve saw a bazzillion of them.

    Seems to me that a 232 acre lake is about 400 or more acres shy of being able to have enough surface area to support a river boat.

    Volunteer Trees are classified the same a noxious weeds. They can create power line hazards, motor vehicle hazards ect and the county can have a legal case brought against it if the trees happen to be to close to the road bed if some type of accident was encountered with the tree. Many yrs ago Highway 2 between Clarinda and Shenandoah had many big trees along the road sides. There was a serious accident one winter and one of the trees ended it with a car wrapped around it killing several people. There was litigation and the following spring the State of Iowa crews came in and removed all of the trees that were 3 foot outside the property/fence lines to the shoulders of the road beds. The accident cost the State of Iowa a fair chunk of change as they lost the case.

    Yes nice fish btw Gene!

    Now traditional fly fishing literature….. I have my own “dictionary” so to speak of fly fishing terminalogy! And yes I do own a gay vest (fly fishing vest) but will NOT place one of those “hats” on my head…. 😀 😀 😀

    Please tell me you don’t own a tweed hunting jacket with elbow patches. 😯

    No Ken no tweed or patches!!

    One of my buddies and I swore we would never own a vest for fishing, we called them gay vests for years….. Kind of one of those jokes between to pals ya know. Well after I started fly fishing, I realized how nice it would be to have one of those vests as they are better for standing in the streams running the flyrod. Well two years later we both have “gay” vests….. I still wont get a hat though. 😉

    I got me one of them vests about 20 yrs ago and it is a co2 vest. I wear a hat it is my cowboy hat it helps keep the sun off of me.

    @flyfishr have you ever tried a pistolpete in still water? How slow a retrieve can you get away with and still spin the blades.

    Awesome to see the fish pics and so much fly fishing activity on here lately. B)

    Yes, I have as I fish the farm ponds and the lakes around home. It doesn’t take much to make the prop spin. A lot of times you will get a strike as the lure is sinking as the prop will spin. The retrieve as with any other type of fishing can be or is dependent on time of yr and mood of the fish. I have been fishing with a fly rod since the early 70’s and have been using these since the mid 80’s.

    I use these all yr long in size 10 and various color patterns and when I know there are bigger fish I use size 6. I also use these when I trout fish on the white river near Cotter, Ar.

    in reply to: Depredation Tags #1616931

    Quote by: bigA

    I couldn’t find any info on line, so I thought I would check here. I was out shed hunting and came upon a guy on a neighboring property (he was just across the fence in a redneck blind). He owns an apple orchard and said he has depredation tags to use. So, I have no reason to not believe him, was just curious as to how long they can continue to hunt? Also, is it antlerless only?

    These dep tags are the ones issued to persons who have deer that are being hard on trees or any other type of deer damage that arises. I can’t remember the usual time frame these dep tags are good for, but they can be issued any time of the yr. If the person with these tags shoots a buck with antlers and I think a doe also these deer are to be turned over to the DNR. Now I also think that any doe that is shot, can be kept for the shooters use if the DNR lets them.

    I don’t really have an opinion on this other than I hate it when you get one tractor trailer rig trying to pass another or several tractor trailer rigs and they have the lanes closed down for anyone to get around them and there is a back log of traffic behind these trucks. My opinion is if there are 3 lanes trucks stay in the right 2 lanes. If there are 2 lanes trucks stay in the right lane. Now as far as the speed limit goes I think there are a lot of young drivers out there that are not experienced enough to know the physics or the consequences of driving at a higher rate of speed and they get themselves into trouble. Me I like to sit in the rocking chair and let all the lead foots pass me by and I pass the slower ones as I come to them. I like a lot of room between me and the vehicle in front of me. So it really tics me off when I have someone behind me for a long time, so close that I can read Rayban on their shades. When they could go around.

    Anyway it don’t matter to me whether it is 70 or 75 out in the wide open spaces.
