2021-2022 Cedar Rapids Urban Deer Management Program Report

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA – The Cedar Rapids Urban Deer Management Program concluded the 2021-2022 bow hunt season January 10.  63 hunters qualified for the urban bow hunt; 31 of the 63 hunters were successful in harvesting at least one deer. There were a total of 84 deer taken during this season's bow hunt. This is a decrease of 3 deer from the 2020-2021 season.   

Harvest statistics:  

69 does

8 button bucks

7 antlered bucks  

Five deer were donated to help feed those experience hunger in Iowa through the HUSH Program. 79 deer were kept for personal consumption.  The two main goals of donation include reducing the deer population and providing high-quality red meat to the needy in Iowa.  

Seven hunters harvested five or more does during this season's hunt and will be eligible for a 2022-2023 incentive buck tag. 

There were no injuries or hunting violations recorded this year.
