Anyone having 3 Plus Iowa preference points or possibly Iowa resident(s) who may be interested in no more than 2 possible openings on our
490+- ac lease in Zone 6 (deer) Iowa PM me for details.
NO OUTFITTERS PLEASE. This is an in place signed private long term lease.
Openings would include April Turkeys if you already have a 2008 turkey tag for Zone 4 Iowa turkey. ( No 08 NR tags LEFT/available).
3+ preference points is mentioned and asked because this would virtually get you a 08 archery tag in this Zone. Non Resident deer tag application begins on/about May 1st 2008.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AT LEAST 3 IDNR PREFERENCE POINTS PLEASE DO NOT PM ME OR RESPOND TO THIS THREAD.
You are responsible for the $426.00+- N/R tag which includes 1 either sex and 1 antlerless tag, license habitat fee of the on line process with the IDNR. (WWW.IDNR.COM). IDNR mandates you show proof of prior Iowa archery hunting license or a NR bowhunting course certificate prior to application.
IDNR now makes it mandatory for NR to purchase an antlerless tag, and we make it mandatory to kill a doe during your stay, filling that NR antlerless tag. This allows us to inact QDM as well as assist in FARM crop depredation assistance for landowner.
Farm consists of 490+- ac, with well over 200 ac in Mature (Primary White Oak) Timber. Remaining acreage is Beans & Corn under a strict well managed Crop lease program.
The Farm is owned by 3rd generation family farm owner residing out of Iowa & who has never allowed hunting other than an occassional family member or friend. FARM OWNER OR FARM MANAGER DOES NOT HUNT! We have an exclusive signed year round lease agreement. Currently under (our) long term contract lease.
Farm sits close to the mighty Mississippi river & close to the Iowa river before it drains into the Mississippi, in classic fertile Iowa ground/ Timber is high bluff ridges and deep ravines.
Strictly under trophy managment, 140" or better, or fine imposed. If we agree to accept you as a bowhunter on property you will have a chance at a long term arrangement with us. Even in years you can not draw a deer tag you could be able to turkey hunt or shed hunt or simply visit and stay at farm house.
2008 archery deer season openings for any interested party(s) under this offer is Oct 1st thru Oct 21st in first year (2008). You pick the ten day period in that time frame, and on a first come first serve basis we decide who gets the week chosen as to not over lap the two potential parties. So, in essence either you will be there alone for 10 days or possibly with a buddy if both of you have 3+ Preference points.
10 Day hunt includes staying at our leased ranch farm house on the property itself. Specifics of the farm & lodging will be laid out during telephone interview. You are responsible in year 1 for your own hang on or climbing treestands. Preferably climbing sticks and no screw in steps.
Currently my lease consists of myself and three other extremely serious professional highly dedicated bowhunters who will not tolerate any BS under any form or circumstances. But will endorse and assist in the theory of having fun first. In short if you screw up you will leave on days 1 thru 10, no refund of monies, and never asked back (personna non grata). Any lie or violation of trust, honesty or crime will terminate all/any remaining stay and no refund whatsoever.
To make the farm and house lease work for all concerned we are seeking one or two serious, mature bowhunters looking for a premier location and situation to satisfy your passion and thoughts of big bucks and having fun while making a friendship.
10 days self guided archery only includes lodging only. $1600 per man for a 10day period from a time frame of Oct 1st thru Oct 21st. This includes a 4 day hunt for 2008 turkeys this April if you already possess a tag, or April 2009 Turkey if you draw a NR turkey tag. FULL Monies due by June 15th 2008 at the latest.
PLEASE DO NOT PM OR RESPOND TO THREAD IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AT LEAST 3 IDNR PREFERENCE POINTS OR DO NOT LIKE OR AGREE TO ANY ONE THING WRITTEN IN THIS THREAD. I will not post or email aerials unless serious talks are initiated as only not to waste our time.
I will and can not respond to responses or PM's that are complaining, negative or not serious in nature. But will respond in great detail to those who seem to be genuine in nature.
Please keep in mind that if you can not or do not have the mind set or capability to pass on or know what a 135"+ 3-1/2 Y/O+ mature deer looks like, or unable to hunt safely and on your own you should pass up on responding to this thread.
Sorry if I sound blunt, but I am trying to keep it real and simple AND ALLEVIATE a lot of routine inquiries.
But please respond if you are seriously interested and capable of meeting these serious bowhunting management demands and developing a long term friendship all while meeting serious archery trophy deer fanatics and fun guys.
Thread will be closed once we decide on the one or two persons agreed upon.
