It is no secret that Iowa is the place to come for monster bucks. We are fortunate to have a lot of quality bucks and a large deer herd in our area. The chance to shoot a world class buck on your stay at Southwest Iowa Outfitters will be very high. We scout year round and have many tree stands set up in strategic locations throughout our properties. We do all the scouting from scouting deer activity, setting trail cameras, and looking for shed antlers.
Iowa is not only known for having big bucks, it is also known for having big turkeys. The heaviest eastern wild turkey weighed just under 36 lbs and was killed in Southwest Iowa only about 40 minutes away from our lodge! The biggest turkey that we have taken weighed just over 27 lbs. Beards over 12 inches and spurs up to 2 inches are also not uncommon in southwest Iowa.
