Why Is Iowa The Best Whitetail State?

Show Notes

On this episode of the Nine Finger Chronicles, Dan talks with Skip Sligh, owner of the Iowa Whitetail forum. The guys discuss what makes Iowa a great deer hunting state. Skip gives his raw and unfiltered opinion about some of the deer hunting rules and regulations that allow the Iowa deer herd thrive and for bucks to get to a higher age class. On the opposite side, Skip talks about some of the proposed regulations that would more than likely be a detriment to the heard like the introduction of crossbow hunting, non-resident land owner tag allocation, and always present fight with law makers, lobbyists, and special interest groups. 

Iowa is the mecca for big bucks and outstanding deer hunting, if we start to mess with that equation, things will change, and unless you are a land owner hunting access will become harder and harder. Not to mention the slide in deer herd. This is an excellent episode, that may be hard to swallow for some of you. Are you happy with the rules and regulations in your state?
