Private landowners in Iowa will soon be able to trap nuisance raccoons on their land on a year-round basis, following the signing of House File 317 on April 28 by Gov. Kim Reynolds. The bill was approved by an 87-11 vote on March 7 of the House, unanimously by the state's Natural Resources Commission on April 13 and by a 47-2 vote of the Senate on April 17. The law will take effect June 7. In addition to the private-land rule, the commission extended the regular season one month for hunting and trapping fur-bearing animals.
