. New for the 2018 deer season our minimum will now be 130 score with a fine of $1000 for anything smaller. This will be strictly enforced.
The Iowa draw has been completed and it wasn't very kind to us or our clients this year. We do have openings because of this for archery, shotgun, and muzzleloader hunts. Give us a call.
Things have been busy here at Iowa Droptine Outfitters with the wet and crazy weather we have had so far this year. We will add it to the list of years to remember. With spring and summer comes new antler growth and lots of baby fawns. Seeing a lot of both. The TROPHY ROCKS and cameras are out in hopes of growing the Giant and getting him on camera. Even better yet harvesting him this fall.
The spring turkey hunts were great this year again. Some days we really had to work as the toms didn't want to respond and other days they were really vocal. It was a great group of hunters as usual. Lots of good stories and laughs. Had lots of good birds. Had one exceptionally good bird. The guy that got the one with two beards didn't have the bragging rights after the hunts were all over.The one bird weighed 24 pounds, spurs 1 and 3/8 inches, and beards measuring 9 3/4, 8 1/2, 7 1/2, and 7 1/4 inches for a total of 32 3/4 inches. Possibly a once in a lifetime bird. It went to a young 13 year old hunter. He was excited to say the least.
Looking forward to fall now and having our deer hunters. It's always an interesting time with lots of stories. Hope you all have a great rest of your summer. We will keep you posted on any changes from the DNR or things happening here at Iowa Droptine Outfitters. Get hose bows and guns fine tuned.
Now for a couple updates on our operation here at Iowa Droptine Outfitters. We have added taking a few firearm hunters. We are opening limited first and second shotgun and muzzleloader hunts. Also we are offering late season muzzleloader hunts from January 1-10. Once again they are very limited so call for information.
Another change we have made is we are now offer the opportunity to use tower blinds for both archery and gun hunts. We have added many more food plots in strategic locations. We have leased more land to accommodate these gun hunts.
Nothing has changed as far as the Iowa DNR. It looks like it will take four points in hand to draw an archery tag and one for firearms.
Call for any information on our hunts, DNR information, we look forward to helping you get your trophy of a lifetime. Remember all our hunts are booked by the date we receive your deposit, so get those deposits sent to secure your spot.
Call now for 2019 and 2020 and beyond archery hunts. Thanks for all the great clients in the past and looking forward to many more in the future. Our pheasant count is much better and we are now booking hunts again.
Give us a call or email about any questions on coyote, spring turkey, or deer hunts. Our families at Iowa Droptine Outfitters are looking forward to showing you an Iowa hunt to remember. When you hunt with Iowa Droptine Outfitters our goal is to help you harvest a trophy animal and make you feel like apart of our family when you leave.
May all your shots hit the target! God Bless.
