Iowa Whitetail Deer Hunting

Akin Outfitters has over 1,000 acres of hunting land near Fremont and Chillicothe, Iowa. We will be running 2 archery deer hunts per year with 4 hunters in each hunt. A select few shotgun and muzzleloader hunts will be available as well. We are making this a premier hunting property for harvesting only mature animals and minimum hunting pressure. We do not want to over-harvest the property and therefore are making restrictions on both number of hunters and class of harvested animals.

Iowa is a draw state, therefore an application needs to be submitted for a deer license each year to earn a preference point for each year, and will most likely draw in the 3rd year the application is submitted. Akin Outfitters will complete this process for you for a small fee, until you draw. In the second year of application, there is a possibility of drawing a permit, therefore when the application is submitted for the draw, the actual license fee for that year will be payable. If you do not draw, you will be refunded your money and still receive a preference point.

Southeast Iowa has some of the biggest bucks in the country!

If you want some great whitetail trophy hunting, you won't do any better than with Akin Outfitters in southeast Iowa...
