As the temperatures start to warm up and the snow starts to melt, we are ready for another year here at Iowa Droptine Outfitters. The turkey draw is complete and it was a good one. We are anxious to get to have turkey hunters this year after being canceled last year on account of the covid. We have lost about enough snow that it is time to get out and get some shed hunting done.
We have had request for earlier bow hunting dates. With that being said, we are opening up the last couple weeks of October for this year. With doing this we have openings for bow season this year. We still have a few openings for our shot gun and muzzleloader seasons too. Give us a call. Wishing everyone a good and safe hunting season this year.
. Our minimum will now be 130 score with a fine of $1000 for anything smaller. This will be strictly enforced.
Happy Holidays from Iowa Droptine Outfitters
We are well into our archery deer hunts. Lots of good opportunities with several really nice bucks taken. Averaging 155 so far for the year. Still getting lots of pictures of wall hangers sneaking around. We have had a great group of hunters in this fall, with many rebooking before they leave. Look forward to seeing them again in four to five years. Have a few shotgun and late muzzleloader hunters coming in for the late season hunts. Overall it's been one of our best years for taking high quality deer. If you are looking for a family operated atmosphere and great deer opportunities, give us a call. Just a reminder it will most likely take four points in hand to draw a bow tag on the fifth year. Darn it anyway. We have no control over that. Also it will soon be time to apply for spring gobbler hunts. Give us a call for more information. Looking forward for an even better 2021.
Our spring turkey hunts were canceled this year due to the Covid. Means there will be more bigger birds than ever. Going to leave the next information here so that everyone can see the quality of birds there are here.
The guy that got the one with two beards didn't have the bragging rights after the hunts were all over last year. 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 2021 and 2022 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.
