With the City of Iowa City's 2022-2023 deer bow hunt program underway, the City is still seeking private property owners interested in allowing approved hunters on their land. Hunter applications are also still being accepted.

Participation in the bow hunt is only allowed on private property when conducted by the property owner or approved hunters with permission from the owner. Private property owners who wish to provide land for approved hunters to bow hunt upon may contact the City’s Hunt Coordinator Lt. Zach Diersen at 319-356-5276 or diersen@iowa-city.org to inquire.

No bows can be fired within 150 feet of any trail, road, park, school, sidewalk, or right-of-way. Additionally, no bows can be fired within 150 of a home or property line without an owner’s permission.

For a complete list of rules and forms, as well as information for those interested in taking part in the urban bow hunting program, please visit icgov.org/Urban-Bow-Hunt
