Come hunt in Iowa, where we’re #1 in pheasant hunting, with over 1 million roosters shot annually. We have access to some of the best pheasant hunting in South Central and Eastern Iowa, with over 1000 acres of private land available for hunting. You may elect to hunt on your own, or hire our guide for the day. The guide will supply hunting dogs and transportation to the field areas. You are welcome to bring your own dog if you wish but a dog is highly recommended either way. Pheasant season runs from late October to early January. There is a 3 rooster limit per day, with a 12 rooster possession limit per person.
