Iowa Furbearer Season Begins Nov. 6

   

IA DNR News Release

Posted: November 2, 2010

Iowa's furbearer harvest season opens statewide on Nov. 6, and for the more than 14,000 dedicated furharvesters, the outlook for the 2010 season is tremendous.

Iowa DNR surveys confirm larger populations for most furbearing animals, with the exception of a few isolated areas where disease, such as distemper and mange, has suppressed numbers. Raccoons are the bread and butter species for many furharvesters and their numbers are good statewide. Furharvesters should expect a good start to the season because crop harvest and tillage is well ahead of schedule concentrating furbearers in remaining areas of good habitat and the weather forecast looks very favorable for trappers and hunters.

The DNR opened 10 additional counties for hunting and trapping bobcats. Counties added to the open zone include: Guthrie, Cass, Adair, Madison, Warren, Marion, Mahaska, Keokuk, Washington and Louisa. The bobcat quota has increased from 200 to 250.
