I know it's the wrong state and I'm hoping for a longshot as I tried this in the Iowa forum with 295 views and 0 replies
If anyone any info on Iowa waterfowling I would greatly appreciate it.
I am looking at the possibility of taking a road trip to Iowa for a hunt this season. I have family with a farm in the Nevada area, which would most likely serve as my starting point. That being said I am open to ideas or input from anyone. In MA where I hunt it's mostly salt marsh and open water hunts for black ducks, divers, and seaducks (eiders, scoters, etc). We do have some small farms (2-3 acres) which we hunt for geese and the occasional mallard. I would be interested in field hunts for geese and ducks or smaller pond/river hunts. We would be bringing layouts,decoys and a canoe with 2 father/son teams and a dog.
Any input on better time of the season for north vs south zone or directions of travel to try from Nevada would be greatly appreciated.
Also if anyone had any information as to property owners giving permission to out of state hunters and how hard it is to get permission, if most guys get it locked up before the season.
Thank you very much, hope everyone is enjoying the off seasons and counting down the days til is opens!
