Iowa DNR August 2017 Roadside Survey To Assess Upland Game Populations

Iowa’s Upland Game Hunting 2017

Pheasants, quail, cottontail rabbits, and squirrels are Iowa’s most popular upland game species. The Upland Wildlife Research Unit monitors yearly harvest and populations, as well as providing information to landowners and hunters.
Each year the Iowa Department of Natural Resources uses a roadside survey to assess its upland game populations. The August Roadside Survey, as it is called, is conducted on sunny calm, mornings, with a heavy dew on the grass, between August 1st-15th of each year with results posted in September.
