Ep. 15: Iowa’s Turkey Season is in Full Swing!!

April 18, 2022

On this week’s show, my guest is Mick Klemesrud from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. Turkey season is in full swing throughout Iowa as things got started back on April 11th. The final turkey season in the state runs through May 15th, so there’s still plenty of opportunities to get out in the woods and harvest a big gobbler. In this episode, Mick discusses current turkey hunting success rates, what to know before heading out to hunt on public lands, safety tips for hunters, things to bring along in your pack when it comes to battling ticks in the woods – plus much more! We thank you for supporting the Joy of Hunting Podcast.

Ep. 9: Iowa State Auditor Rob Sand

March 7, 2022

On this week's show, I'm joined by Iowa State Auditor Rob Sand. No, we aren't discussing state financial reports. Rob is an veteran bowhunter and loves the outdoors. He has a very busy schedule being an elected official, but when he has some free time, he takes advantage of it and heads to the woods. Rob does a lot of public land hunting from a tree saddle (and from the ground), and also hunts bucks in the city in some of Iowa’s urban zones.
