Iowa Officials Expand Land Available for Hunting

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Officials have added eight new sites to Iowa's walk-in public hunting access program.

The state Department of Natural Resources says the additions increase available hunting land by 600 acres for a total of nearly 7,600 acres on 48 sites.

The hunting access program allows hunters to use a portion of private land. Landowners enroll their property in exchange for habitat improvement on that land.

The new sites are located in north central Iowa, in a part of the state with the least amount of public hunting access.

The DNR has site maps available online. Walk-in public hunting through the program begins Sunday and runs through May 31.
