Before your hunt begins we always kick things off with an informative pre-hunt meeting. This allows my staff and I to set clear expectations and answer all of your questions or concerns about the hunt before you set foot in the woods. We do ask all of our clients not to harvest any 2 year old bucks to ensure our young up-and-comers can mature and reach their full potential.
I do have a guide there with you on your Iowa hunts but on some days, you will be expected to get yourself out to the properties and the stands, so you will need your own transportation and you will need to download ON X HUNT app on your phone before your hunt. Each night, my guides or myself will discuss with you where you will be hunting the next day and will show you on the maps where you will be. We'll give you a background of the property and the current deer movement there along with pictures. We will then share the stand location with you via ON X HUNT app and this will take you right to the property and to the actual stand location. All stands are flagged with orange tape and with reflective tape for entrance and exit routes to and from the stands for both daylight and darkness. Time of year, food sources, weather patterns, wind direction and recent sightings are the major factors we use to make our decisions on where you'll hunt each day. We'll even provide you with in-depth information (past encounters, deer movement, etc.) about your stand location to ensure you are well prepared when the time comes to harvest that trophy animal.
If you're fortunate enough to harvest a trophy, you and our guide staff will track, retrieve, field dress, photograph and deliver your animal to a local processor for caping and freezer preparation if you choose. We can also recommend local taxidermists that do amazing work if you decide to have your trophy mounted locally.
From the moment you arrive, you'll see tremendous effort from myself and my entire staff to make your hunt memorable and successful. Join us and experience a first class operation in one of the best areas of the country to kill a giant whitetail. We look forward to providing you with an exceptional hunt and hopefully a big smile over that buck that just stepped from the brushy draw and onto your living room wall!
