IMB Outfitters offers trophy whitetail deer hunting in Western Kentucky. Western Kentucky is similar to North Missouri in that Western Kentucky is a “sleeper” state. Over the past 5 years Western Kentucky has produced some of the biggest whitetail bucks in America. Like Missouri, Western Kentucky offers peak of the rut rifle hunting, along with incredible archery and muzzleloader hunting. Kentucky also offers 2 different youth firearms season. While IMB Outfitters has been in business full time for 17 years, 2017 will be the first year of whitetail hunting on virgin hunt ground that presents a vast amount of high quality timbered areas mixed in with agricultural fields. Kentucky ranks in the top 10 States in the Nation according to the Pope and Young, and Boone and Crockett Record Books. IMB Owner, Darrin Bradley, states, “We are excited about hunting in Western Kentucky. We expect to put some real monsters “on the ground” due to the fact we are hunting on virgin territory.

Baiting: In Kentucky one may bait with supplemental food sources. IMB Outfitters will run high protein feeders and mineral sites to lure in monster whitetails, as well as using these supplemental feeds to enhance antler production.

Firearms Hunts: The State of Kentucky allows rifle hunting during the peak of the rut in the middle of November. The firearms tags are obtained over the counter at local sporting goods stores or online. Tags are guaranteed.

Archery Hunts: Western Kentucky presents marvelous trophy whitetail archery hunts. The archery season runs from September 3rd to January 15th. 

Muzzleloader Hunts: Kentucky offers a muzzleloader only hunting season. Hunters may choose one of two muzzleloader only season which include October 15 and 16 or Dec. 10 to Dec. 18. Hunters may choose any 4 days to pursue trophy whitetails with muzzleloader only during these times mentioned below. The tag is obtained over the counter at local sporting good stores or online. Tags are guaranteed. Kentucky has proved to be the place to hunt for muzzleloader enthusiasts. Above all we had to do was setup over food plots, and feeders to wait for trophy whitetails to come into the food source provided.

Success Rates: We calculate success rates by dividing the number of trophy buck or 130 inch buck shot opportunities reported by our hunters, by the number of hunters we take each year in that particular state. Please refer to the success rates page for the latest information. NOTE: No promise or guaranteed shots at trophy bucks are made by IMB Outfitters.

Western Kentucky Location: Our Kentucky deer hunting is located near Hopkinsville, Kentucky which is renown area for harvesting monster whitetail deer. The closest airport would be Nashville, however other airports are available as seen on the “trip info” page of our website. A friendly airport located within an hour of our lodgesite. Those traveling by motor vehicle may travel to our “trip information” page for a detailed map.

Western Kentucky Lodge: In Hopkinsville, Kentucky we have a lodge. We offer both semi and fully-guided hunts of your choice at the following cost per hunter. Note: See our “Deer” page for descriptions of semi guided and fully guided hunting.

Our fully guided hunting trips are hunts wherein stands are hung by IMB Staff prior to your arrival, guides walk you to the stands to assure you will find the tree stand setups and ambush sites, IMB staff will transport you to the farm, field dressing of your deer is done by an IMB Guide, your guide will drag out the animal you harvest, and prepare your animal for taxidermy and meat processing, hero photos, etc. 

On fully guided deer hunts, the guide doesn’t sit with you while you hunt but, he walks you to and from the stand and takes care of you during your stay to strategize on a trophy whitetail harvest. Thorough examinations of strategies and tree stand assignments are performed on your behalf to assure you receive the highest quality service. Guides also scout trophy whitetail deer both prior, and during your hunt in an effort to keep you on the hottest ambush sites available. Great lodges, great food included!

Quality Deer Management Program: In order to produce large whitetail bucks we have to protect our smaller up and coming bucks from being shot. Thus you must harvest a buck that scores over 130 inches. If you shoot a buck that is missing a tine or is broke off we will score him as if he had it, but your buck must score a minimum of 130 inches gross score. If you shoot a buck under 130 inches a $750 fine is imposed with no hard feelings.

Trophy Hunting Areas: For the past few years we have been saving farms that we have insisted hunters take a buck scoring over 145 inches. We call these areas trophy farms. We do not expect you to hunt these areas unless you are truly after a monster whitetail. The trophy farms will enhance your chances of taking the buck of a lifetime. You must specifically request to be placed on a trophy area. In order to hunt one of these trophy areas the hunter must agree to refrain from shooting a whitetail buck under 145 inches. If the hunter is on a trophy area with the 145 inch minimum at his own request and shoots a buck scoring under 145 inches there is a $1500 fine. Only a limited number of hunters will be allowed to hunt what we are referring to as “trophy areas”.

Hunting Rates


NOTE: Various hunts are for different lengths of time. For example archery hunts are 5 days, firearm hunts are 4 days, and late muzzleloader hunts are 4 days. As a result, hunters will be awarded the same number of nights for lodging as the number of days their hunts are. Hunters wishing to purchase additional nights of lodging will be charged extra, per the lodge facility. (Normally $130 per hunter.)

Semi-guided hunts do not require a $500 deposit, but rather the entire amount is due in advance on a semi-guided hunt.

When you book 4 hunters with IMB, the 5th hunter hunts for free. (The 5th person will be responsible to pay lodging cost.) A saving of up to $4000 on the 5th hunter.

The State of Kentucky mandates that a 6% sales tax be charged on each hunt.

Taxes may be applicable on the lodging portion of the hunt price also.

SINGLE STATE PASS: IMB has devised a Single State Pass. This has been done upon popular request by hunters. A Single State Pass provides the hunter with unlimited hunt access year round for both turkey and whitetail deer hunting. In essence a hunter who purchases a Single State Pass can hunt that State as much as he or she desires. Full year round unlimited access. For example if a hunter would purchase a Western Kentucky State Pass then the hunter can hunt Western Kentucky for turkey and deer year round with unlimited access. Hunt all year long on an unlimited basis in any of our 4 States. Of course in Kentucky the hunter could harvest an 1 bucks, 2 does. The State Pass provides a bonanza of unlimited hunting for one low price. The Single State Pass is much cheaper than a land lease and provides as much hunting as any hunter could imagine. In Missouri a hunter can harvest 1 buck and 2 does. In Illinois , a hunter can harvest 2 bucks and 2 turkeys. In Iowa, a hunter can harvest 1 buck and 1 turkey. In Kansas , a hunter can harvest 1 bucks and 2 turkeys. The State Pass is the ultimate budget cut for the serious whitetail enthusiast as the cost is less than 2 hunts. COST: $7000

LIFETIME HUNTING IN THE MIDWEST: IMB Outfitters currently runs trophy deer hunts from state of the art hunting lodges in Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, and Missouri. IMB Outfitters is currently offering hunter or hunters the ability to be provided with unlimited hunting in all the States we conduct business for one lump price. Hunters that simply involve themselves in so many hunts that it would be more beneficial to buy in to unlimited hunting for whitetail, turkey, and predator as a “member” of IMB Outfitters may currently do so. Many hunters across America find themselves buying so many hunts that they would benefit from simply buying unlimited lifetime hunting for one set price. IMB Outfitters calls this becoming a “Platinum Rewards Member.” Any person that purchases unlimited lifetime hunting will simply be able to access any of our hunt camps in Kentucky, Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri with rifle, bow, crossbow, shotgun, or muzzleloader any time that they wish for the rest of their life for a one time payment of $45,000.00. Although a healthy sum to spend on hunting many hunters across America would save money with the purchase of unlimited lifetime hunting.
