Iowa is arguably the best state in North America for hunting huge, mature white-tailed deer. Due to overall lack of pressure and no firearms season during the rut, Iowa produces more Boone and Crockett animals than any other state. All of the record book bucks are produced with one of the lowest numbers of hunters by state, meaning your chances here are better than anywhere in the world. Iowa also leads the world in agricultural production, therefore providing some of the best food and minerals available for the deer to reach their full potential.
Our minimum on bucks harvested in Iowa is 140” or 4 1/2 years old.
