Iowa has a point system in order for a non resident to draw a tag. You can purchase a point every year. If you apply for a tag and don't get drawn you also receive a point. Basically a person with 2 points gets drawn over a person with 1 point(3 gets drawn over 2 and so forth). In a few of the zones it usually takes at least 3 points to draw a tag. This is kind of a pain, but at the same time they only allow a limited number of non residents to hunt every year. If you need more info just look it up on Iowa's DNR page.Twin Springs said:I would love to go out to hunt. What are you guys talking about "buying points"? Dont know anything about it.
