As Iowa hunters hit the fields and forests, they’re liable to run across a dangerous type of prey that could do them some damage. With the start of the various deer, pheasant, turkey and other hunting seasons, thousands more people will be beating the bushes of rural Iowa, bounding into places that otherwise might only be frequented by criminals. State officials are warning hunters to tread with caution if they stumble across what’re likely the remains of a methamphetamine lab. Telltale signs include things like coolers, plastic bags, glass jars and rubber hoses. The containers may hold traces of various chemicals which can burn the skin or seriously damage your lungs and eyes. Make note of the items, where they are and mark the site, if possible, so the authorities can find and dispose of it after you call it in.
