The January 5 - 6 depredation deer hunt at Springbrook State Park, north of Guthrie Center, will allow hunters to use a variety of firearms, not just muzzleloaders, as stated in the 2007/08 Iowa Hunting and Trapping Regulations.
Hunters may use a shotgun, muzzleloader or handgun as part of the depredation hunt. A list of firearms and calibers is on p. 23 of the regulations. Center-fire rifles are not allowed.
Hunters wanting to participate in the antlerless only deer hunt should contact the state park office at 641-747-3591. There are 75 antlerless only licenses available for the two-day hunt. Contact the park for more details.
