DNR Reminds Deer Hunters of 2004 License Requirement
Hunters planning to participate in the special late January deer season will need to purchase a 2004 general hunting license in addition to their deer permit. The special season is Jan. 11 to 19. 2003 hunting and fishing licenses expire on Jan. 10.
"The close timing on this requirement could catch a lot of hunters off guard," said Bob Sheets, wildlife biologist with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
The bonus season is being offered for the first time to further control deer numbers throughout the state.
