ZONE 5 SOUTHERN IOWA
STANDS & BLINDS
Zone 5 of southern Iowa, more specifically south-central Iowa, boasts some of the best whitetail deer hunting in the entire state. Due to national publicity from all ends of the hunting industry, Zone 5 has become the most sought after Zone in Iowa to bow hunt by non-residents.
As much of that we agree with, there are
still factors to weigh when deciding on your location for your hunt:
1) Application / Draw Odds
2) Last Year's Season
3) Weather Outlook
4) Ag Harvest Outlook
5) MDL's Outlook
The largest bucks we've pursued were in Zone 5, and we killed our biggest buck in Zone 5. In our opinion, Zone 5 is equal to Zone 6 in trophy production & rate.
Of Zone 5 Counties, we hunt in the following:
Western Zone 5
Eastern Zone 5
