IMB Outfitters is the most qualitative “whitetail specialty” outfitting service in the nation. There is a trend in the hunt industry with the “springing up” of new outfitters across the country that is tricking hunters to focus solely on the hunts price. While the prices of IMB are competitive one must remember IMB has been perfecting a hunt service focused on the harvest of trophy whitetail bucks for 13 long years. Sure clients can always find a cheaper hunt, but waiting all year long and then ending up with a bad experience in an effort to save a few bucks just isn’t worth it.

Here at TTO we pride ourselves on being a small family ran outfitting business. With us, you will not see big numbers of hunters or guides. We want to provide you with a quality hunt on our well managed farms that these giant bucks call home. The only way to grow and hold mature deer on our farms is to let them live with out being pressured. This not only lets the deer live with out stress, it lets them get to the age needed to grow a world class set of antlers.I am not only a outfitter, I am a hunter. With being a hunter, I know what it takes to consistently harvest mature deer. First, you need ground in areas that have quality animals. That is why I decided to set up in south central Iowa and northern Missouri. There is no better place in the country to hunt whitetail's. Second, you need little to no pressure on your deer. To achieve this I run a very low number of hunters with 90% of them being bow hunters. I also take a very limited number of gun hunters each year and they hunt just like the bowhunters. All of TTO's hunting is done from treestands or blinds. I do not believe in pushing or driving deer. Third, you need to know the ins and outs of a mature bucks habits. I live with these deer all year long so I know where they like to sleep, travel and eat. I try to stay one step ahead of them at all times. This gives me the upper hand when it comes to setting up on a mature deer. With knowing all three key parts to a hunt, This allows me to set up stands that will put you within shooting distance of your dream buck.

Iowa Hunting Outfitters and Guides Deer Facts

Deer were very abundant in Iowa at the time of European settlement, but uncontrolled hunting and habitat destruction quickly reduced theirnumbers. Though it seems hard to believe today, by 1898 deer were virtually gone in all parts of the state, and the deer hunting season was legally closed. New populations of deer moved into Iowa from surrounding states. These immigrant deerrepopulated the state with the help of deer that escaped or were released from captive deer herds and deer purchased from other states. As herd densities increased, some deer were trapped and moved to different areas of the state to aid the deer restoration effort. The flash of the whitetail of a deer bounding across the road is a common sight in Iowa. Many people in the state value white-tailed deer simply because of there presence. Most lowans enjoy the aesthetic value of seeing these graceful animals along roadsides and in woodlands, parks, and farm fields. In additions deer offer numerous recreational opportunities including nature watching, photography, and hunting. Deer hunting recreation anually makes $30.6 million for lowa. Iowa white-tailed deer have higher reproductive rates than those found in some other areas because of the high quality habitat. Does in Iowa typically have their first fawns when they are about one year old (yearlings). Most yearling does have single fawns and most adult does have twins. Because of the highly produclive habitat, about 8 to 12 percent of adult Iowa does have triplets. In the wild, some adult does maintain this high reproductive rate for up to 10 years. Deer populations increased dramatically across eastern North America during the 1980s and 1990s. At the same time, their natural habitat was greatly reduced as a result of the continuing expansion of urban areas and conversion of native landscapes to agriculture. The remaining deer habitat became stressed by the high population densities. Protected areas, such as state preserves, forests, and county and state parks, began showing stress. More problems related to the high deer numbers became evident as agricultural crops suffered damage from deer traveling from the safety of the preserves to the fields to eat. The most recent development has been problems associated with deer in expanding urban environments. Ornamental trees and shrubs in residential and commercial areas suffer damage as deer seek alternative food sources. In addition to damaging landscape plantings, the increased deer activity can cause property damage in vehicle-deer collisions. The possibility of deer transmitting diseases to humans and other animals also is a concern. Compounding these problems is the controversy surrounding hunting as a means of managing.


Iowa Hunting Outfitters and Guides Turkey Facts

Iowa Department of Natural Resources initiated a program to return the wild turkey to Iowa. Wild turkey were released at several sites across the state, with the first release occurring in Lee County, Iowa. Over the past 30 years, the restoration of Iowa's wild turkey population has resulted from natural expansion from the early release sites.In Iowa, the abundance of food and nesting areas in non-forested habitats (corn fields, pastures, hayfields, restored native grasses) has allowed turkey to survive in areas where forests are limited. In traditional turkey range, minimum timber requirements of 10,000 continuous acres of mature forests are commonly thought to be necessary for wild turkey. Research indicates that areas with a 50:50 ratio of forest with properly managed non-forested habitats is ideal turkey range, and a minimum of 1,000 acres of timber is ideal to allow a turkey population to thrive. Since the restoration of wild turkeys to Iowa, turkeys have been found in small 2-3 acre woodlots, much to surprise of wildlife managers. Wild turkey are primarily birds of the forest. The eastern subspecies found in Iowa and most of the United States east of the Missouri River thrives in mature oak-hickory forests native to this region. Turkey primarily eat nuts, seeds and berries (collectively called mast) produced in greatest abundance in middle-aged to mature stands of oak trees. Turkey are large, strong-walking birds capable of covering a range of 1-2 square miles in a day, searching for suitable food items by scratching in leaf litter. These “scratchings” – piles of leaves adjacent to a small plot of bare earth – are characteristic in good turkey habitat and indicate that turkey have been feeding in the immediate area.In winter, turkey rely primarily on mast for food, although in Iowa and other agricultural states they are capable of substituting waste grain in harvested corn and soybean fields, where it is available adjacent to timber. When snow covers their native foods, or mast crops fail, corn fields supply an important supplemental food capable of carrying turkey through winter stress periods in excellent condition. Turkey are often seen in crop fields during the winter taking advantage of the waste grain in the fields in Iowa. Large flocks of turkey observed in crop fields have raised concerns of crop depredation by agricultural producers. Wild turkey are actually beneficial to crop fields, since they primarily consume insects out of fields during the spring and summer. To address these concerns, a crop depredation pamphlet was developed by the DNR.


Iowa Hunting Outfitters and Guides Pheasant Facts

Why does Iowa pheasant hunting promise a rich haul? Iowa is covered with croplands and grasslands--ideal pheasant habitat. The grasslands controlled by the Conservation Reserve Program are large tracts of land, where pheasant love to hide from predators. Other domains protecting pheasant are thorny brush, and cornfields with wide and grassy draws. Can anyone going in for Iowa pheasant hunting ask for more? The best hunting opportunities are to be found in north-central Iowa. Again, it is the IDNR which has made this possible. Efforts have been put in for both, public, as well as private lands. They have gone all out to create an improved habitat with grain crops, native grasses and wildflowers. Almost ideal conditions can be seen on the acreage owned by the Conservation Reserve Program. Pheasant are birds that can be found alone or in small flocks. Typically, a mother hen and her flock will stay together until early autumn. While pheasants are able to fly fast for short distances, they prefer to run. If startled however, they will burst to the sky in a "flush." Their flight speed is 27 to 38 mph when cruising but when chased they can fly up to 60 mph. Pheasant spend almost their entire life on the ground, rarely ever being seen in trees. They eat a wide variety of foods; including, insects, seeds and leaves. Roosters typically have a harem of several females during spring mating season. Hen pheasant nest on the ground, producing a clutch of around ten eggs over a two to three week period in April to June. The incubation period is about 23–26 days. Pheasant will range in weight from 3.5 to 4 lbs, Hens will range in weight from 2 to 2.5 lbs. The insulating effect of habitat moderates windchills, thus providing a warmer and less energy-demanding microclimate for pheasant. Birds, like dogs and cows, do not sweat to air-condition their body, they must pant (rapid inhaling and exhaling) to remove excess body heat Through most of the growing season, pheasant can survive on the moisture they consume in insects and the morning dew on vegetation. Male pheasants are called 'Roosters' or 'Cocks' and females are called 'Hens' A typical rooster accumulates a harem of three to seven hens. After hatching, pheasant chicks immediately begin growing flight feathers, and are capable of short flights at 2 weeks Pheasant do not migrate, they stay relatively local all year long. On flat ground, a ringneck pheasant can run at speeds of 8-10mph, Pheasant can fly up to 48mph.


Iowa Hunting Outfitters and Guides Duck Facts

Iowa really shines when it comes to duck hunting. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) provided us with some great, first-hand information on why Iowans are rightfully proud of their duck hunting opportunities. Iowa is part of the Mississippi Flyway - -the Missouri River on the West, and the Mississippi on the East are meccas for hunters. But those are not the only places in Iowa where you can limit out on duck– and quickly, too. All-in-all, Iowa is one heckuva great place to do some duck and geese hunting. True dabbling ducks have an iridescent patch, called a speculum, on the trailing edge of their secondary feathers. Most male dabbling ducks are brightly colored; the females are less distinctly marked. Diving ducks lack this iridescent speculum. Coots can feed like either a dabbling or a diving duck; dabbling for seeds, algae, aquatic insects, and small fish on the open water, or diving to feed on roots of aquatic vegetation, snails and worms.The estimated number of mallards, which is the gold standard for duck hunters, was 10.6 million birds. The estimated number of gadwall duck, which we see in relative abundance along the Tennessee River and Mobile-Tensaw Delta. Teal numbers look excellent as well. Green-winged teal duck estimates are 3.5 million, up 20 percent over last year's numbers.


Iowa Hunting Outfitters and Guides Goose Facts

Giant Canada goose nested throughout Iowa before the 1800's. Wetland drainage and unregulated subsistence hunting and egg collecting caused these geese to disappear from the state by 1900. A program to restore a self-sustaining population of giant Canada goose was initiated by the Iowa Conservation Commission (forerunner to the Iowa Dept. of Natural Resources) in 1964. Where did the Canada goose that nest in Iowa come from? The goose used for the restoration program initiated in 1964 were descendants of wild giant Canada geese that had been captured in Iowa and southern Minnesota during the latter half of the 1800s. Early settlers frequently captured geese during mid-summer when the adults were molting and the young could not yet fly. Flocks of these large goose were raised on many pioneer farms for food and feathers, particularly for their soft insulating down. How big are the Canada goose that nest in Iowa? Adult female giant Canada goose average about 11 pounds. Adult males average about 12 pounds. Giant Canada geese weighing up to 16 pounds have been shot by hunters in several Midwest states, but goose this large are uncommon. Light snow goose aren't only a nuisance to Iowa farmers. They have become so abundant, they are destroying their nesting grounds in the Arctic Tundra. Not only are the goose eating themselves out of house and home, they're destroying critical habitat for other species that share the Tundra. Biologists can conduct eradication efforts to balance the population, but do so only as a last resort. Increased hunting opportunity is the first wildlife management tool biologists turn to, because it costs very little to implement and is much more socially accepted than other population control measures.  Canada goose vary from a small, duck-sized subspecies to the giant Canada goose, which can weigh up to 25 pounds



Iowa Hunting Outfitters and Guides Quail Facts

Hunting Iowa Quail is over grain fields edge cover created by drainages, fence rows, waterways and fallow ground. A drainage cutting through a soybean field. Scenes from on day's hunt. Bobwhite Quail, is the most widespread of the 6 species in the United Stated. Bobwhite quail range in weight from 6-8 ounces and in height from 6-8 inches. Bobwhite quail are ground dwelling birds and quail feed mainly on insects. The male quail upper body is reddish-brown while the belly is pale and streaked.  There is a white stripe above the eye with a white patch inside the black area around the throat.  In females, this region is caramel-colored. During early fall, bobwhite quail form into social groups called coveys. Coveys spend the night on the ground in a circle with their heads pointed outward to conserve heat and to avoid nocturnal predators. Males begin their familiar "Bob-Bob-White" call to attract hens for mating in the spring. Nesting occurs from May through September. Clutch sizes vary from 10-20 eggs.  The average amount is 12 eggs laid one a day. Incubation lasts 23-24 days. The chicks follow their parents upon hatching and fledge in 6-7 days. Chicks have a 30% mortality rate. Life expectancy of a bobwhite quail is less than one year. The bobwhite quail feeds mainly on insects. Due to the small heart of the quail, the average annual home range size is 40 acres.  Some quail's home range is up to 200 acres depending on conditions. The flight speed of a bobwhite quail is 20-40mph.  They can only fly short distances because flying raises their body temperature.  If this temperature gets too high the bird will perish.
