Hunting Seasons Kick-Off in Marion County

Squirrel and rabbit season kicked-off in Marion County this past weekend, and is a great time for residents to teach their kids basics of the sport. That’s according to Iowa State Conservation Officer John Mertz. He also tells KNIA/KRLS News September 19th-23rd is the beginning of the waterfowl season, and hunters need to make sure their boats and equipment is functional, their decoys float and their ammo is ready before heading out on the waters. Mertz adds youth deer season begins September 19th and runs through October 4th.
