MUSCATINE, Iowa – The 2020-2021 deer bow hunting season within the limits of the City of Muscatine will be held Sept. 12, 2020 through Jan. 10, 2021. The hunting season was approved by the Muscatine City Council at its July 16, 2020, meeting.

The City of Muscatine has participated in a city wide deer hunt program with the guidance of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources since the 2006-2007 Deer Hunting Season. This year’s hunt within the city limits will again be for bow hunting on approved private property with two (2) acres or more. Property owners may combined parcels to reach the two (2) acre minimum.

In advance of the upcoming bow hunting season for deer within the city limits, the City of Muscatine will once again host a qualifying shoot for interested parties. In order for individuals to be eligible to participate in this year’s hunting season within the city limits, they must pass a shooting proficiency test.

The test will be given at the lower level lot of the Weed Park Maintenance Facility, 1211 Weed Park Drive, on the following dates:

Saturday, August 29, 2020 – 8 a.m.-10 a.m.

Wednesday, September 2, 2020 – 5 p.m.-7 p.m.

Wednesday, September 9, 2020 – 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

In addition to the proficiency testing, an informational meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, August 19, 2020, at the Weed Park Aquatic Center. Hunters interested in participating in this year’s hunt are required to attend this meeting.
