Southern Iowa farms

Thread starter #1
my husband is looking for 1 possibly 2 hunters if you are a group, to join him on a southern iowa deer hunt/lease next season.

-he will have 2 farms leased for muzzleloader season, a 400 acre and a 310 acre farm, both within 20 minutes of each other in the farm country of zone 4
you will be able to chose what farm you want to hunt exclusively after you have a chance to review aerial of each farm. he is fine hunting either one.
the farms are beautiful with ideal mixture of crops and timber. generally see 20-40 deer a sit
-he hunted these farms two years ago so he can give your tour and where best to setup. mainly all hunting out of box stands and ground blinds
-very nice lodging will be included in a private residence on the 310 acre farm. yall would be only ones staying in house during the hunt.
-cost is $2500, $2250 each if two hunters.
-you will need to already have 1 preference point to draw for this hunt.
-no bowhunting will have taken place on these farms, however it will be shotgun hunted some during that season
-hunt would take place January 3rd through the 10th, leaving on the 11th, this is great time of year due to deer having to feed due to cold

please call 404-219-1199 thanks
Please add a location as required by the rules.

Received a couple of messages inquiring about bowhunting the property. Landowner is doing away with bowhunting due to some really big deer being wounded an not found or found well after the fact. Below is one shot by bow hunter that wasn’t found till much later in the 400 acre farm from a few years back.

The muzzleloader hunt can be drawn every other year. So this is something that could be done long term. Blinds an gear can be stored in the basement for future hunts. Great opportunity to hunt southern Iowa every other year for a little more than what lodging would cost an less than half of what outfitters in this area charge. Especially considering you can hunt a full 8 days if you choose to

Yes, good looking farm.

Great opportunity for someone.

I am hoping to be in zone 5 the first week of November.
