The Iowa Habitat and Access Program has grown to 25,000 acres, significantly increasing the amount of land available to hunters in Iowa. These opportunities are thanks to landowners who participate in the Iowa Hunting and Access (IHAP) program. Landowners receive funding and expertise for habitat improvements when they enroll in the program, and in turn allow public access to their land for hunting.
To help maintain the success of IHAP, hunters are asked to respect private property when hunting and follow these IHAP tips and guidelines. Walk-in public hunting through IHAP is available between September 1 and May 31st. Areas are posted with signs (to the right), and are regularly patrolled by Iowa DNR conservation officers. Safety zones also are clearly marked. Learn more about the IHAP program and benefits to landowners and hunters.
