    I'd rather just fold it up and not have to worry about a laminated 3X6 card that's bigger than my wallet.

    As for the open carry thing, I would still advise one to have their permit handy regardless of location
    Sorry JD, the seasons don't coincide that way until late January. At that point you're technically hunting archery AND muzzle loader, and you must carry a muzzle loader tag with you if you have a handgun.

    Tell that to the DNR, it's in their own FAQ

    We're saying the same thing, ya knucklehead. "A tag that allows the use of a handgun" would be a muzzle loader tag. Archery specifically disallows firearms, BUT muzzleloader specifically allows them so long as they meet certain guidelines. 4"+ barrel, .357 or larger, and a straight wall case with an expanding type bullet.

    Further, you can't carry a handgun while hunting in Youth Muzzleloader season (since you have to be a youth to hunt then). While the DNR book doesn't address defensive carry while hunting in an 'illegal' season, the DNR agents I've spoken with have said, pointedly, "Don't do it".

    Misinformation

    Hey all,

    I live in Benton county and we have the paper permits. I just got mine renewed two weeks ago. The lady at the Sheriff's office was very nice when she talked to me about this, but I'm passing along the info she gave me. She told me the following because I had laminated my original permit. I had also re-sized it. It was still perfectly readable ... but about 50 % smaller so that I could fold it up and put it in a picture holder of a billfold.

    It is ILLEGAL in Iowa to COPY, LAMINATE, or RE-SIZE the permit. She knows it's common. And she says it likely won't cause you a problem with an officer unless you give him crap in some way, or if he's had a bad day.

    Benton county had begun to apply for plastic permits last year, but ended up not following through when the state was to go to plastic as a whole. Then for some reason, Iowa changed it's mind on that. So the Benton Sheriff has to start the paperwork all over again.

    Anyway, I don't know if anyone even reads this old thread or not, but thought I'd pass along what the Sheriff's office told me about the paper permits.

    As always, your mileage may vary.

    She's is correct about the lamination. It's "altering office doucuments"

    Plastic cards are issued agency by agency. Some agencies have partnered with others so that you can get a laminated card.

    IE I reside in Grundy County but they have an agreement with Marshall County so that Marshall will look at my paper permit and issue me a plastic one.
