A relatively new avenue for Hawkeye Fly Fishing Association to raise funds in support of our habitat work and educational programs, is the opportunity we have as an Iowa 501(c)(3) conservation organization to auction a special Non-Resident Iowa Deer hunting tag. Purchase price in excess of the base tag price ($426) is tax deductible. Proceeds are split with the Iowa DNR, with the base cost of the tag being deducted from HFFA’s share. Last year’s auction netted HFFA over $4,000. The value in this tag is two-fold: the buyer assures themselves of an opportunity to hunt an Iowa buck, in either 2014 or 2015 (buyer’s choice), which is particularly important to buyers who missed out in the regular tag drawing, and the tax deductible proceeds go to benefit Iowa’s natural resources.
Bidders interested in purchasing the tag in this year’s auction, or to get more information, can find it on eBay, item 121404700686, or by clicking here. If you don’t hunt yourself, or don’t need a non-resident tag, but know an avid non-resident deer hunter who wants to be assured of having a tag to hunt on for 2014 or 2015, please share this info. Auction ends Aug. 17, 2014 at 10:22:46am Pacific Daylight Time.
