With almost 1,000 acres of varying terrain, from dense forest and creek bottoms, foot plots, and agricultural fields, hunts within the preserve can be extremely challenging – but always tailored to what you want to accomplish and how. It can take days, changing locations, strategies and tactics, to find that buck of your dreams, and sometimes it can happen in the blink of an eye when you least expect.
It has always been our priority to make sure your Timberghost experience is something you are proud to share with all of your hunting friends without any hesitation by putting the “hunt” back into preserve hunting.
With elevation changes of several hundred feet and old agricultural fields that have been reclaimed by vast sanctuaries of 6-foot-tall native prairie grasses broken up by an endless maze of wooded hollows that disappear into one of the many wandering creek bottoms throughout the ranch, it is perfectly nurtured habitat and truly an amazing place for the seasoned whitetail hunter to spend his time chasing monster Iowa whitetail deer. While our focus is on managing the habitat and an incredible whitetail herd most of the year, during season we are focused on making sure our guests have an unforgettable hunting experience.
We have large comfortable enclosed blinds on many of our primary food plots along with ground blinds and ladder stands scattered throughout the timber. You may find yourself playing cat and mouse among the ridges and creek bottoms or even banging some horns together during the rut trying to rattle a giant Iowa buck out of the thickets. This incredible habitat helps ensure a challenging and authentic hunting experience chasing world class Midwestern whitetails for the most seasoned whitetail hunter throughout the season.
To hunt Timberghost there are no tags to draw or lotteries to win. Rather than wait years to secure a highly competitive tag to hunt Iowa and put a whitetail adventure together, you can have that adventure with us this season. It is as simple as making a phone call. Preserve hunters can use rifle, bow, crossbow, muzzleloader or pistol on most hunts. The only restriction on weapons is that during the Adventure hunts in November we only allow archery equipment.
All Preserve hunts include lodging, meals, guide, and license/tag. A 7% Iowa sales tax and shipping of the cape, antlers, or meat are not included in the cost of the hunt and while staff gratuities are always welcome they are at your sole discretion.
