Michel,
sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I have been out of town. Iowa nonresident is a lottery drawing for archery tags. From what I understand not usual to draw the first year, but very successful the second year. Go to iowadnr.gov for application info.

Re: Need a BIG black bear?

Michel,
What part of Alaska are you in? I live in Northern Utah. I can offer you a mule deer hunt on horse back. We camp in wall tents and ride out from camp in the morning for about a hour or so depending on how far in the deer are. The succes rate is low. There are deer there but we are after the big ones. This hunting is on public ground in a wilderness area. It can get croweded at times. I haven't shot a deer in 4 years. We have scouted and seen some real whoppers but luck hasn't been on our side so far. I don't know if this interests you or not . You would be more than welcome to join us.

Re: Need a BIG black bear?

hello hunters, well I to have a great place to hunt black bear! Back in early June I went to Newfoundland and highly reccomend this area.Many bear and monster size too boot. You may take 2 bear on your license as I did.These are the true "Pumpkin Head"bears you here of. Also I hunted basically all day as this time was the Bear Rut.They were very active as I got shots or saw bear from dawn till dark. Trout fishin for wild trout was good also.Mosquitos were tough but Thermo Cell worked great. I'd love to go back for a combo oof moose(very plentiful)&bear maybe in 2012.This is a true hunting land and great people,muchgame and great food! dzs

BUMP THIS THREAD. Excellent trade opportunities. May be able to work something out for Ohio and Kentucky whitetails.

Michael:

The forest fire between Trinidad CO.and Raton, NM was devestating to the wild game. While teaching a gunsmithing course at Trinidad State last summer I saw dozens of bears out my hotel window going in and out of the dumpsters. There was one male that was color phase (Chocolate) that must have weighed 400 pounds.

I would be interested in talking to you about a eastern whitetail hunt or inshore saltwater fishing trip (sea trout, channel bass, flounder, blues and spanish mackeral light tackle fly of spinning rod. Your deer tag allows for the harvesting of 6 whitetails 2 a day. Hunting is moderately easy from tree stands shots of 20 yards or less.
