Iowa BHA Auctions off Statewide Nonresident Deer Tag!

Backcountry Hunters & Anglers and the Iowa BHA Chapter are proud to offer a highly-coveted statewide Iowa Special Non-Resident Deer Tag for one deer of any sex plus one antlerless tag to the winner. Iowa is the premier whitetail deer hunting destination and consistently ranks in the Top 5 states for trophy whitetails, but being drawn for a tag can often take several years. 

Guarantee yourself a tag and an opportunity to bag the whitetail of a lifetime. 

50% of the proceeds from this auction will go back to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to help conservation efforts in that state. The other 50% will go to BHA and its Iowa Chapter to help further our mission and directly increase public land and public access in Iowa. With less than 2% of its land open to public access, we must protect and maintain the opportunities we have through grassroots advocacy and stewardship, while finding new ways to increase access and opportunities for hunting and fishing.

The special license allows you to hunt statewide (landowner permission would be required on private land) for one any-sex deer during your choice of season - Archery, Shotgun (which includes straight-walled rifle cartridges), or late Muzzleloader. In addition to the winning bid, the high bidder will have to pay directly to the Iowa DNR the normal cost of the hunt & habitat fee of $144. The license is valid for the hunter’s choice of 2024 or 2025 hunting seasons. The winning bidder will be contacted and connected with Denise Roberg, Specialty License Manager at Iowa DNR, to specify the choice of year and season.

The auction will begin on Friday, March 1, 2024, at 8:00 AM CST and ends on Sunday, July 28th at 8:00 PM CST.
