If you live outside of Iowa, this is your chance to hunt Iowa Whitetail deer!
Indian Creek Nature Center and the Iowa DNR are again teaming up to offer a 2015-2016 Iowa Non-Resident Deer Tag to the highest bidder. The winner, who must live outside of Iowa, receives a tag that allows them to harvest one any-sex deer and one antlerless deer. The auction will take place on E-Bay from Monday, August 10 through Friday, August 14, 2015. The listing will be under sporting goods/hunting/hunting trips & leases on ebay.com (<–This link will take you directly to the hunting trips and leases category.)
This auction is a fundraiser with proceeds divided between Indian Creek Nature Center and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to help fund conservation and sustainability projects. This a fantastic opportunity because the Iowa DNR limits the number of non-resident hunting permits offered annually, and those permits are awarded by lottery drawing. Competition is stiff. Iowa is home to several record-setting racks and the state presents abundant opportunity for hunters to score a “big one.”
This non-resident deer tag is valid statewide; however, landowner permission is required before hunting on private land. Hunting is not allowed on Indian Creek Nature Center property. The tag may be used either in the 2015 Season or 2016 Season. To participate in the auction, you must live outside of Iowa and bid through ebay.com. Indian Creek Nature Center prefers that the winner pay with check, to avoid Paypal fees. The Nature Center will contact the winner for payment at the conclusion of the auction.
