Operation Update 3/18/2020

As noted all over the Home page of our website, this is the first year that we are only offering archery hunts to the public as an "archery-only outfitter" in southern Iowa and eastern Kansas. Our Iowa deer hunts and Kansas deer hunts are strictly archery only. This is a huge change for us, and so far, it has gone very well. We are staying busy here in southern Iowa & eastern Kansas moving forward toward the hunting season. As noted in our prior email newsletters (you should subscribe at the bottom of our website pages if you haven't already), our Kansas hunts have remained rather personal instead of professional as we host a few hunters whom we know well. Potentially starting in 2021, and depending on how we do there this year, we will open up Kansas to all inquiring hunters. The Iowa operation will always be our baby, but we hope that our adopted Kansas operation merges well within the family.
