Iowa Early Muzzleloader Oct. 13 - 21 Purchase until quota (7,500) is reached.
County quotas for antlerless tags apply. Must have purchased any deer for this season to obtain antlerless tags for this season. Residents only.
Iowa late Muzzleloader Dec. 17 - Jan. 10, 2013 County quotas applies for antlerless tags. Must purchase 1 any deer tag for the early or late season to obtain antlerless tags for this season. No party hunting.
If you choose to go in shotgun season 1 or 2 you can't go in muzzleloader season for that year.
However if you own a bow you can hunt the rut all of it with no pressure from gunners at all during it.
I get a any deer tag for bow early split. Antlerless for late bow then a any deer tag for late muzzleloader & a few antlerless for late muzzy also. If I have room in the freezer that is!
