January Antlerless Deer Season Begins In Select Iowa Counties

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is reminding landowners and tenants of land registered with the Iowa DNR of their eligibility to participate in the January antlerless deer season.

21 counties are open to the January antlerless season on the farm unit in the open country. The antlerless season is open in Decatur, Wayne, Davis, Taylor, Clarke, and Appanoose counties within the region. Landowner/tenant licenses are not subject to county quotas.

The January antlerless season is Jan. 11- 22. Licenses will be available beginning Wednesday, from license vendors in the open counties.

Due to the compressed timeline, these licenses will not be available online. Only antlerless deer may be taken during this season. Only centerfire rifles .223 caliber to .500 caliber with a published or calculated muzzle energy of 500-foot pounds or higher are allowed in the excess tag January antlerless season. The excess tag January antlerless season was approved by the Iowa Legislature during the 2022 session.
