Success Rates


 


175" Kansas Monster taken by 14 yr old

Prior to reporting the success rates lets define them.  We define success by comparing the number of trophy shot opportunities to the number of hunters in a given time period.  For example if we had 10 hunters in camp from November 1 to November 5 and those 10 hunters had 8 shot opportunities at trophy bucks we would report an 80% success rate.  This report doesn’t mean that 8 of the hunters received shot opportunities.  It may be that 5 of the hunters in the group had 8 shots.  Any success rate that exceeds 100% simply means that during that time period we yielded more shots at trophy whitetail bucks than we had hunters in camp.

Success rates exceeding 100% doesn't mean everyone in that time period received a shot.  As a final note success rates are in a no way a promise of harvest.  Remember we are hunting wild trophy animals, and any outfitter that promises you a shot is in fact being dishonest.   

Deer Hunting Success Rates  

NOTE: Some time periods state "yet to hunt". "Yet to hunt" means we haven't completed that hunt yet for this season. However, those success rates will appear upon completion. For example the Iowa late muzzleloader success rates do not appear as they don't start until late December. IMB Staff will promptly report success rates for the season as they occur. So users need to continue to check the success rates as the season transpires.

IMB provides quality portable elevated treestand, elevated ladder treestand, and enclosed box blind ground hunting located in topographical advantages such as funnels, spiderwebs, low spots, inside corners, etc., rub lines, scrapes, funnels, food plots, and bed areas. IMB land tracts are privately owned and managed for trophy buck production, composed of oak timber, bed areas, and agricultural field and food plots.

Many of today's premier trophy whitetail states are accessible only through lottery fashion or random drawing of deer tags. The challenge with booking a hunt with any other outfitter in one of these states is that if you don't draw a tag you don't go hunting. It's no fun to be at home on the couch during whitetail season, because you didn't draw a tag. With IMB Outfitters if you don't draw a tag in any state which is lottery driven you are able to simply transfer your deposit to one of our other states, which sells deer tags in a non lottery fashion. In short, it takes the risk out of trying to draw, in a lottery state, while all the while building you preference points for next years hunt season.
