Poll Shows Iowans Oppose Dove Hunting
By Dave Hurteau
From the Des Moines Register:
A poll published today shows Iowa voters oppose dove hunting nearly 2-to-1 1,
although the bill in the Legislature to allow it again shows little sign of passing.
A survey conducted last week by Mason-Dixon Polling and Research found 53 percent of Iowa voters oppose dove hunting, compared to 27 percent who support it.
The poll question noted that the practice had been outlawed since 1918 and that the Iowa Legislature was considering a bill to allow it again.
