The Timberghost Adventure hunt is a new hunt package we are offering for the first time starting fall 2011. A cross between our free range archery hunts and our preserve trophy hunts, these hunts are designed for the serious archery hunter that wants a real opportunity at world class bucks with better odds than free range hunts can provide, but without a guide leading the way. We have 550 acres of some of the best whitetail habitat in Southeast Iowa that has been fenced and intensively managed for over a decade that is now dedicated to semi-guided archery only hunting. Yes, there will be no gun hunting on the property any longer. With deer taken over 225 typical and up to 250 non-typical from this property in the past, the genetics are second to none and the possibilities are limitless with the genetic pool on this property.
There are roughly 40 ladder stands on the property and 15 ground blinds hunting travel corridors, food plots, and automatic feeders. We will take up to 4 hunters per week and there will be 2 hunters per guide. We will have active trail cameras on the property so hunters can look at up to date scouting information and talk to the guides about which stands are good for what winds in areas of recent activity. Hunters will be picked up for lunch if they want to come in and guides will prepare lunch and get them back out for evening hunt. After the evening hunt, hunters will head back to the lodge for dinner.
These are 4 day/5 night hunts for mature bucks. The cost is determined by the week booked only and, unlike most preserves, there are no trophy fees to worry about. The last thing we want is to have someone worried about something other than making a great shot. If a hunter harvests a buck under 150 we will refund 25% of the hunt cost. A non-refundable $1,000 deposit is required to hold dates so please call for available dates.
