With highs forecast in the 90s across much of Iowa this weekend, it won’t feel at all like fall, but an autumnal activity will kick off that’s a sure sign the cooler weather is coming soon. Nate Carr, an Iowa D-N-R conservation officer, says two popular Iowa hunting season are opening on Friday.
Iowa’s teal season is short and runs just through September 16th, while the dove season lasts through November 29th.
Carr says hunters will need to be prepared before they head for the field this weekend.
There’s also registration needed for HIP, or the Harvest Information Program. There’s no fee associated with HIP but hunters of migratory game birds are required to fill out the brief survey. Learn more at: www.iowadnr.gov.
