This is a terrible name for a hunt package, and doesn’t represent the value our hunters get when they come on a Management Hunt. With the continued improvement of the genetic potential of the herd, what we call a management deer today used to be a trophy just a few years ago and is the deer of a lifetime for many hunters. Just because you are looking at a management hunt doesn’t mean you should expect less focus, less effort, or less enjoyment. Our number one priority is to offer all our guests the experience of a lifetime and we have many groups that return each year to enjoy what has affectionately become their Iowa deer camp.
All Management Hunts take place early September, toward the end of November and throughout December. These are 3 day/ 4 night adventures for bucks scoring up to 150 SCI. Since our trophy hunts are considered anything over 200, these hunt packages can be upgraded up to 200 if you see an old bruiser you simply can’t let walk…. with the guides thumbs up of course. The guides price upgrades in the field based on age, look, and score, but they will generally be an additional $500-$4,000. These hunts are a great way to see and experience everything Timberghost offers while enjoying a hunting experience you will never forget.
These trips can be booked as either a 2x1 or 1x1 and we require a $1,000 deposit to hold dates.
Management Hunts: $4,200 1 hunter per guide. $3,500 if booked 2 hunters per guide.
