Iowa Warns Of Long Lines For Deer Licenses

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is warning deer hunters they may see long lines to get licenses but fewer deer.

The DNR said it expects to sell more than 50,000 licenses between Wednesday and Saturday morning, the opening day of Iowa's shotgun deer season.

The agency says licenses will be sold at more than 900 locations statewide. Hunters are encouraged not to wait until the final minute to purchase them to avoid a last-minute rush.

The first season lasts from Dec. 1-5 and a second spans from Dec. 8-16. DNR experts say that deer numbers could drop by at least 10 percent from last year as a result of longstanding strategy to cut the population.
