Iowa Whitetail Hunts
Whitetail Ridge Outfitters offers hunts on over 6000 acres of prime hunting ground in Eastern and Southeast Iowa. Everyone knows that Iowa is the place to go for that chance at a buck of a lifetime. Our hunts are offered in Iowa Non-Resident zones 5, 6, 7, and 8. Iowa is a lottery state and the application period runs from the first Saturday in May until the first Sunday in June each year. We book hunts early in the year and have options in other states if you do not draw an Iowa tag so dont wait until you have the tag to book the hunt as you might find that we are full.
We are currently running two camps in Iowa to keep our pressure to a minimum and make sure all our hunters have a Trophy Whitetail Experience. The hunting is Iowa is World Class and this is no secret with the quality of bucks we have been harvesting. We started in Iowa and have been intensely managing our properties since the beginning. We do not think you will find a better place with overall quality of animals as you will find on our Iowa farms.
When on a fully guided hunt with us you will be provided with linens for your stay, continental breakfast, sack lunch, and a hot dinner. We will also assist in the tracking of your trophy, gutting, caping to the base of the skull, and harvest pictures after the hunt. We also walk our hunters to and from the stand. We usually encourage our hunters to sit in the stand all day as the weather and deer movement permits. To keep the hunting good for many years to come we have set antler minimums on our bucks. Bucks taken with a bow must be at least 140 and bucks taken with a gun must be at least 150. There is a $1000 penalty for any buck taken under the minimum requirements, this penalty is not enforced on any deer that is 4 + years old.
Semi-Guided hunts ARE available on our Iowa properties.
