Nonresident Holiday Hunt Tags Available Dec 15
Iowa offers a special nonresident holiday deer hunt, Dec. 24 - Jan, 2, 2017. Nonresident hunters who have not purchased a deer tag for the 2016 deer season can buy one antlerless-only tag for the discounted price of $78.00. Legal methods of take for the season include muzzleloader, bow and handgun. Licenses go on sale December 15 and must be purchased at a license retailer rather than the online site.

Nonresident Antlerless Tags
Even if you were not able to get tags through Iowa's annual lottery, or if you would like to add an additional tag, some antlerless tags are still available for nonresidents. These are sold on a first-come first-served basis, so we recommend you purchase quickly. Check out available tags by Iowa county. If you purchase an antlerless tag online and it still hasn't arrived before your trip to Iowa, you can purchase a duplicate of that tag at an Iowa license vendor once you arrive for $4.50.
