THE OPERATION

MDL Outfitters, LLC is a unique, small, and highly successful outfitting business that has now transitioned into an 'archery-only' operation that is scattered across multiple areas of southern Iowa that fall into either Zone 4, Zone 5, or Zone 6. We strive to produce the high-quality Iowa whitetail deer hunts to avid bowhunters from across the country who seek to harvest a highly coveted mature midwest trophy whitetail.

From the cedar thickets to the standing corn fields, from the timbered ridges to the CRP bottom lands, you will be in the hot seat with us on your trophy whitetail deer archery hunt in southern Iowa.

Averaging 90% shot opportunity during the archery season on mature whitetails during any given year, 100% prior to 2019, we feel that our offered archery hunts are the best investment that bowhunters can make when purchasing an outfitted semi-guided hunt in the midwest for these corn-fed Iowa bruisers!

THE STATS

Iowa Archery Whitetail Deer Hunts 

Average Bow Kill: 155"
-
Shot Opportunity = 90%
(100% excluding 2019)
-
Highest: 202" Gross B&C Non-Typ (Bow)
Lowest: 125" Gross B&C Typical (Bow)
-
Min. Maturity: 4-1/2 Years
Target Maturity: 5-1/2 Years +
Target Score: 160" Gross B&C +
-
80% of the bucks that we kill have never been seen by us before, in-person or by trail camera monitoring
-
NOTE: We do not use "Kill Percentage" as a referenced statistic due to a surprisingly high rate of wounding shots, missed shots, and relative selectiveness by hunters looking for deer higher than 170" at 5-1/2 years of age or older. The only statistic that we calculate is shot opportunity, which is highlighted above.
