Over 2,500 acres of private ground 100% free range low fence hunting in southwest Iowa. Largest area will be 1,200 continuous acres.
Last season (Jan. 2016) two hunters from Texas came, one missed a 145" 8pt the other missed a 185" 14pt while hunting a total of three days. They had to leave early because of a child was being born. That's why I require trip insurance from Travel Guard - http://www.travelguard.com/sportsmans/
which will cover in case of cancellations or having to depart the hunt early.
Most hunting will take place over clover, brassica, soybean, and corn food plots.
These are 7 day hunts and more than likely you will be the only ones in camp, although there might be overlap possible. Only 6 hunters total for the entire year (can make some exceptions, call me)
This is a draw only late season muzzleloader hunt. Season dates are Dec. 18th - Jan. 10 draw odds are almost 100%.

Five bucks over 147" and 4 years of age have been harvested off of these properties in the last two seasons.
In 2014 alone I harvested three bucks, 147", 151", and 172" and hunted a total of 5 days.
I can almost guarantee in the 7 days of your hunt you WILL have a shot at an animal over 140"
Drinking or drugs while hunting isn't tolerated. Drinking after the hunt is fine. No deer drives allowed. Temperatures will be cold, windchill below -20 possible during the hunt. There will be spot and stalk involved during the hunt after the second day of hunting.
