Since Iowa is a draw state, Timberghost can’t guarantee when you will draw a tag, but we use historical data to give you as accurate a timeline as possible to plan your trip to Iowa. Gun hunters typically take two years to draw while archery hunters normally require 3-4 years to draw a tag. Upon booking, we will send you an application that we submit to the Iowa DNR for a preference point or license/tag depending on the year of your scheduled hunt. Each year you apply we will bill out a $500 deposit to keep your dates secure and submit your application. The deposit does not cover license fees that will be charged by the state of Iowa. All deposits received will be applied to your hunt cost the year you successfully draw a tag and successful applicants will be required to pay half of the remaining balance of their hunt cost upon successfully drawing a tag with the balance due 60 days prior to your hunt dates. All deposits are non-refundable.
To hunt the Preserve at Timberghost there are no tags to draw or lotteries to win. Rather than wait years to secure a highly competitive free range tag to hunt Iowa and put a whitetail adventure together, you can have that adventure with us this season. It is as simple as filling out the form below to request your dates. Preserve hunters can use rifle, bow, crossbow, muzzleloader or pistol on most hunts. The only restriction on weapons is that the Adventure hunts in November are archery only.
