A recent 2017 study by Expedia and the Airlines Reporting Corporation says there's a new optimal time to buy airline tickets. Travelers often swap theories on the right and wrong times to book a flight.

We've heard it all: The lowest fares are on Tuesdays at 3 p.m. ET. No, Wednesday at 1 a.m. is the best time to buy! You need to book at least two months before you fly. No, you should look for a deal and fly at the last minute! Websites like Kayak suggest when you should buy, or if you should wait, it's like we're all trading stocks
but in the end there's no guarantee. And according to George Hobica of AirfareWatchdog, "There is no secret time. You need to look four times a day minimum every day of the week, as far in advance as you can."

But the latest study by Expedia and the Airlines Reporting Corporation says that 2017 "could be a banner year for travelers taking to the skies," with a new ideal time to book. Based on billions (yes, billions) of passenger flights from January 1, 2016, through October 24, 2016, the study concluded that the best day to buy airline tickets is Sunday, especially if you're booking more than 21 days in advance. Weekends are generally a good time to buy, but not Fridays, since there's an uptick then in business travel bookings. Do this and you "can save more than 30 percent to Europe and 17 percent on travel domestically," says the study.
So, if you are planning a flight...remember 21 days in advance and Sunday. It may save you some extra cash!

Iowa Draw Opens May 2016


Nonresidents may apply for a 2016 Iowa deer hunting license beginning 6 a.m. CST on Saturday, May 7th. The application period runs through midnight on Sunday, June 5th, 2016. Applicants are encouraged to visit Iowa’s nonresident hunting page to view the application guide, season dates, zone map, drawing statistics and pricing information before submitting their application.
Hunters may apply online or by calling toll free at 1-800-367-1188. Application results will be available online at the first or second week in July.


Hunters who choose not to apply for a 2016 nonresident deer license are eligible to purchase a preference point to increase their odds in future drawings. Preference points are $50 each, plus application fees. Points are only sold during the May 7th-June 2nd application period and the limit is one point per hunter per year. If you have purchased preference points in the past, you can log into your online account to see the number of points on your record.
Remember, all of the Hunt Club properties are located in the famous VanBuren County Zone 6.


It takes an average of 3 points to draw an archery tag. So, you should draw a zone 6 archery tag every third year.
Your chances of drawing a shot gun or muzzle loader tag are better than 80% every year. Most members book a gun hunt first to get a feel of the properties and quality of game before banking points for an archery hunt. If you are hunting with a buddy or group, you can apply as such so that if one draws, you all draw and visa versa.
Good Luck!
