IOWA Special Non-resident Deer Tag Auction


Turkeys For Tomorrow is proud to offer a highly desired Iowa Special Non-Resident Deer Tag. Iowa is considered by many to be one of the premier white-tailed deer hunting destinations in the United States. The Hawkeye State is where whitetail dreams become reality and every year there are several bucks harvested over 200". Getting a tag often takes many years. This is your opportunity to guarantee a tag and promote state and local conservation efforts through Turkeys For Tomorrow, in partnership with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR).

TFT’s focus on the conservation of the wild turkey is not limited to one region. We are working to save the wild turkey in all regions of North America. Our friends at the Iowa DNR have been implementing practices and conducting research for the past two years that is providing vital information to their biologists and enabling them to make sound decisions related to the wild turkey. This research can be utilized throughout the country.

Dan Kaminski, a wildlife biologist with the Iowa DNR, has been marking hens and poults with GPS or VHF/Radio transmitters since 2021. This has enabled Dan to evaluate population demographic parameters related to hen and poult survival, cause specific mortality, and nesting rates. Some of Dan’s findings have been in line with the trends that TFT has seen in other states. Help us help wild turkeys in the state of Iowa!
