I'm looking for a place to deer hunt during the first shotgun season of this year. I have 2 rejection points so getting a tag shouldn't be a problem this year. I would like a spot in the southern half of the state preferably with low hunting pressure. I would like to shoot a 135 class or better. I wouldn't have anyone hunting with me but have no problem sharing a property with someone. I'm honest, respectful and will follow all rules and regulations. Not looking for an outfitter hunt, would rather have a do it yourself hunt. I would need to come out and see the property and meet face to face before I sign any paperwork or give deposit. Call , text or email Tim at 706-260-7905

Probably need more info as far as what part of the state you would like to hunt, etc. Good time to start net working though, never to early to get some contacts working.

Lots of good public ground all over the state.

Apparently you didn't read his post. He wants a low pressured area and is willing to pay.

He also said, he wanted a do it yourself hunt. What better way to do it yourself then, doing the work, scouting, and hopefully harvesting a nice buck. I truly wasn't trolling, just throwing out an option.

Public land can be a great resource if you're willing to put it the work. My brother, my son, and myself each harvested a turkey on public land in central iowa this spring. This required lots of walking, crossing creeks, etc. It wasn't easy, but super rewarding!

It seems to me that a lot of people just want to take the easiest option, to each their own I guess. Good luck on your hunt this fall.

Probably not a bad idea, but I gleaned from the OPs post he is wanting to pay money to ensure he is the only one there.

While this is doable on public land in some areas (i.e., at least an hour's drive from any major metro area), if your time is limited and you want to increase your odds of harvesting a mature deer then your best bet is certainly to try to get permission on private ground. Good luck!

I didn't see in his post that he is willing to pay? Funny how different people perceive things differently.

I'll second the public land option. Plenty of land in the state if you are willing to do the work.

Honestly I wouldn't point my worse enemy onto public ground in Iowa during shotgun 1 for sure, maybe shotgun 2.

Bow hunting no problem.

That should be the fate of any ISIS members captured alive. Turned loose deep in Iowa WMA on day of shotgun 1.
