I recently moved to Iowa. I don't really know anybody here who hunts. I am looking for a hunting partner. I hunt deer and turkeys but I'd like to try a few new options too like pheasant, duck, and coyote amongst other things. I am pretty laid back and low key. I am also looking to put together a group or get in group that goes on a trip or two every year. I went to Wyoming last fall and killed a good mulie buck on public land. PM me or post below. Thanks.

Just go stand near a piece of public land during the gun season. You will meet tons of hunters

I would get a good lab, a boat, and get yourself on any water = hunt ducks, geese too ofcourse!! Do a little scouting and find a good place and go man. Quail.

I am 31 years old. I live in the Des Moines area. Not sure what other info to post that wasn't in my original post. I'm really just trying to find somebody or a group to hunt with. I'm not looking to hunt on anybody's private land or public hot spot or anything. I have my own access secured. You all know what its like. You work all week, you want to spend your free time talking hunting. Thanks for your time.

Well OK, IOWA stands for Idiots Out Wandering Aimlessly. Sorry just something I picked up drivin' Big trucks thru there. But really, I know how it is being someplace new and trying to find huntin' partners that you and they can accept. It's tough. Hell Even the ones I have now are good partners, and it took 20 years to find them. They still aint perfect but...........I still love 'em. Beginnin' to think I am married to my best partner. She complains alot when shit is not right but she is alway there with me and willing to do whats needed. Naw, anyway. Find a trap or skeet club or something to that effect and join a shoot..Shooting range whatever you'll connect and find some buds! Just takes time, It'll all work out and you can PM me or whatever. The guys here will give ya some crap but they seem to all be pretty good folk as you are. Joe. Sent ya a PM

Don't be sorry for me. I love it here. I know its not for everybody, but I am really enjoying it. Sort of like Montana isn't for everybody, like its not for me. You enjoy where you're at, and I'll enjoy where I'm at. And we can leave it there.

I have not heard of a good one north of Des Moines. There is one south of here on the way to Indianola run by the DNR. I have been there 4 or 5 times. They have a really nice setup.

You could get exterminated for talking down about the Great Motherland like that! ;)

I wasn't offended at all. You said you didn't care for Iowa. I said I preferred Iowa to Montana. That's all.
