    In the event that I actually move to the corn state, anybody know the laws there about using my AR15 to snipe coyotes?
    I know I can't use a rifle for hunting deer, but I'm not sure about varmints.

    I searched all over the Iowa DNR website and couldn't find anything about what firearms are allowed for coyotes;Q .

    As far as I'm aware, it's open game.

    The last time I got stopped by the IA DNR they didn't seem to have a problem with me hunting coyotes and crows with a .22-250 so I would guess that your V-Match won't be a problem.

    However, I would suggest that you leave the rifle at home during deer season in order to prevent any misunderstandings.
