We typically start our archery hunts around the last 10 days of October and run through the week before Thanksgiving.  This allows all of our hunters the opportunity to hunt during the most exciting and productive times of season.  While it is an option, we typically do not book early October or late November as they are typically slower times of year for deer movement, but will try to accommodate you if requested.

These hunts include 5 full days of hunting.  We normally have 2-3 hunters per guide with only 4-6 free range hunters in camp each week.  Over the last 7 years we have averaged 72% shot opportunity for our hunters and the bucks brought into camp have averaged 142 with the past two years averaging closer to 145.  We have taken deer up to 189 typical gross P&Y and have missed opportunities at larger.  Weather is a key factor during the archery season and nothing beats a late October or November cold front for getting the bucks moving.  By concentrating our efforts in and around the rut we normally have the odds tipped in our favor regardless of other factors.  There is no draw length or draw weight limit on archery equipment as long as you are shooting an arrow at least 18 inches in length with a broadhead.  Crossbows are allowed with a note from your doctor and approval of the Iowa DNR.
