Iowa: Monster Whitetails

The farm country, rolling hills, creek bottoms and superior genetics of southern Iowa consistently produce some of the best trophy whitetails in North America. Our outfitter holds exclusive leases to thousands of acres of prime habitat in famed Zone 4 and closely manages this land for trophy whitetails. Archery, muzzleloader and shotgun (with slugs) hunts are offered and all hunts include full guide service, comfortable lodging and home-cooked meals. These hunts regularly produce bucks averaging over 150", with several 160"-180" bucks taken every season. Best of all, the hunts are priced very reasonably, making this one of the best values today for serious trophy whitetail hunters. Iowa is a "license draw state" and non-residents should have at least 1 point for gun hunts (either muzzleloader or shotgun) and 3 points for archery hunts. The license application period runs from early May through early June of each year and this is also the time to purchase preference points. You can purchase a preference point for just $50 by going online to the hunting section of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources website. If you're looking for a serious trophy whitetail hunt at a great price, this hunt is an excellent choice. Interested clients should begin purchasing preference points now, especially if they are interested in an archery hunt. Please call our office if you need any assistance with applying for a license or puchasing a point and we'll be glad to assist you.
