483A.8 Deer license and tag.

1. A resident hunting deer who is required to have a hunting license must have a resident hunting license or resident combined hunting and fishing license or a fur, fish and game license and a wildlife habitat stamp in addition to the deer hunting license.

2. The deer hunting license shall be accompanied by a tag designed to be used only once and separable into two parts. When a deer is taken, the deer shall be tagged with one part of the tag and both parts of the tag shall be dated.

3. A nonresident deer hunter is required to have only a nonresident deer license and a wildlife habitat stamp. The commission shall annually limit to five thousand licenses the number of nonresidents allowed to have deer hunting licenses. The number of nonresident deer hunting licenses shall be determined as provided in section 481A.38. The commission shall allocate the nonresident deer hunting licenses issued among the zones based on the populations of deer. However, a nonresident applicant may request one or more hunting zones, in order of preference, in which the applicant wishes to hunt. If the request cannot be fulfilled, the applicable fees shall be returned to the applicant. A nonresident applying for a deer hunting license must exhibit proof of having successfully completed a hunter safety and ethics education program as provided in section 483A.27 or its equivalent as determined by the department before the license is issued.
