How Our Hunts Work


 

IMB Outfitters is the most renowned whitetail deer outfitter in the Midwest.  IMB conducts both whitetail deer and turkey hunts in Iowa, Missouri, Pike County Illinois, Ohio, and Kansas.  In an effort to educate hunters that are planning a whitetail deer or wild turkey hunt with IMB Outfitters, it is important to lay forth details surrounding arrival, departure, and how are hunts are conducted.  The following narrative will supply hunters with information regarding travel, arrival, departure, contact phone numbers of each location, as well as a description of how our hunts are conducted.  After covering the difference between a semi and fully guided hunt we will provide travel info and contact info on each of the 5 States we run hunts.  (Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, and Ohio)

When whitetail deer hunters or wild turkey hunters plan a hunt with IMB Outfitters, they may select a variety of hunts.  They include the following:

Whitetail deer hunters may elect to choose a fully guided, or semi guided whitetail deer hunt when hunting with IMB Outfitters.

DESCRIPTION OF SEMI GUIDED WHITETAIL HUNT WITH IMB OUTFITTERS

 Any semi guided whitetail deer hunt will involve more effort from the hunter than a fully guided whitetail deer hunt.  A fully guided hunt is not a hunt where the guide sits with you while hunting.  Let’s make that clear from the start.  Thus let us define a semi guided Midwestern Whitetail Hunt.  On a semi guided whitetail deer hunt, the hunter or group of hunters will participate in a five day whitetail deer hunt.  You will arrive at the lodge the day before your hunt actually starts, and leave the morning after your 5 day hunt ends.  IMB outfitters staff will help you remove your hunting equipment from your vehicle, and get you a room at the lodge in the State your hunting.  All lodges are exclusively owned and exclusively housing only IMB Outfitters hunters.  You will find the lodges to be quite nice.  Complete with archery and gun ranges, the lodges provide three meals a day, and all the snacks and drinks you can consume.  Lodging is included in the overall price of the hunt.  On a semi guided whitetail deer hunt, only after getting you settled in the lodge you will be taken through a brief orientation.  After which, on a semi guided whitetail deer hunt, you will be given aerial photographs and assigned a farm or group of farms that only you and your group will hunt.  Unlike other semi guided hunts ran by whitetail deer outfitters, our semi guided land tracts are equipped with tree stands already erected, and orange tape and glow end the dark tacks every 30 yards to each stand site.  (Normally a semi guided hunt per Midwestern Standards do NOT include treestands already in place, thus IMB offers a much better semi guided whitetail deer hunt than most whitetail outfitters and guides.  The day before your hunt starts a guide will take you to the farm for your semi guided deer hunt.  He will explain how to travel to and from the location, as well as show you where the tree stands are located.  The next five days of whitetail deer hunting, you are on your own.  You are welcome to hang your own treestands, however we have found that hunters that do so normally have lower success rates.  (Its best just to hunt our treestands on the farm.)  You will field dress and butcher your own whitetail deer, transport yourself to the farm, do your own scouting, and will be unable to switch to another farm if desired.  (The fully guided whitetail deer hunt is not performed in this manner.  On the fully guided hunt you will have much more assistance.)  The semi guided deer hunt was constructed by IMB Outfitters three years ago in order to meet the budget needs of the financially challenged whitetail deer hunter, as these hunts are much cheaper, however as I said, success rates are decreased on a semi guided hunt.  On a semi guided deer hunt you will find your success rates will not be as high as on a fully guided whitetail deer hunt.  Often times I hear whitetail deer hunters state at the end of their five day semi guided whitetail deer hunt that by the time they figured were to kill a trophy buck it was time to go home.  While semi guided hunts can be productive, A FULLY GUIDED HUNT IS THE BEST. 

DESCRIPTION OF A FULLY GUIDED WHITETAIL DEER HUNT WITH IMB OUTFITTERS

Fully Guided Whitetail Deer Hunts are often defined incorrectly in the Midwest.  Any fully guided whitetail deer hunt is not a situation where a guide sits with you while you are hunting.  I repeat, on a fully guided whitetail deer hunt you will hunt alone from the ambush site.  Of course in locations like Africa, Alaska, and Texas high fences, it is traditional that a guide sit with you while hunting.  This is the very reason the term “fully guided” is often defined incorrectly for Midwestern whitetail deer hunts.

On a fully guided whitetail deer hunt with IMB Outfitters, we welcome you to the hunt lodge in the same manner as the aforementioned scenario.  You will arrive the day prior to your hunt of whitetail deer, and be greeted by our staff.  We will assist you in carrying your gear to a room at the lodge and introduce you to the lodge staff, followed by a brief orientation.  On a fully guided whitetail deer hunt the orientation will cover more material than the semi guided whitetail deer hunt orientation.  During this orientation we will discuss with you aspects of the hunt which include field scoring, whitetail deer strategies, whitetail deer sightings, review a host of aerial photographs, as well as a vast array of other things.  After the orientation is complete you will be assigned a hunt guide.  The hunt guide will transport you to and from the farms we know we have big whitetail bucks patterned on.  The hunt guide will walk you to and from the hottest deer stands IMB Outfitters leases.  While you are hunting for whitetail deer you're guide will be scouting other farms and patterning monster whitetail bucks on your behalf.  It is the job of the guide to stay a couple steps of head of you with scouting techniques, to assure you are afforded a shot opportunity at a record book whitetail buck.  Let us pause for an example in an effort to compare the quality of a fully guided whitetail deer hunt verses the semi guided whitetail deer hunt.  Let us imagine you invited me to your home for a week’s worth of whitetail deer hunting.  Let us further imagine that when I arrived at your home you simply pointed to a couple hundred acres and said “There's some ground to go hunt, have fun.” While I might enjoy myself, my odds at killing a trophy buck would be drastically increased if while I was hunting you were scouting for me, and placing me on the hottest tree stands available, near the biggest bucks you had seen.  This is the difference between a semi guided whitetail deer hunt and the fully guided whitetail deer hunt.  Upon you harvesting a whitetail deer your guide will take hero photographs,  field dress the deer for you, transport the deer back to the hunt lodge, hang the deer, cape of the deer, skin the deer, butcher the deer, and place the deer in the cooler.  Therefore on a fully guided whitetail deer hunt the advantages are great.  Treestands vary in type with box blinds, ladder stands, hang on treestands, and tripods.  You can view the treestand setups on our stands and blinds page of the website located at www.imbmonsterbucks.com
