IMB Outfitters offers Eastern Turkey hunting in Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois from 5 Star Lodges on the best hunting land in the Midwest.
Although the National Wild Turkey Federation reports that the wild turkey resides in 49 states across America, 46% of the record tom entries come directly from Iowa, Illinois, and Missouri. While all three States hold much promise of success, Missouri has measured up as the #1, State in the Nation for populations of turkey, and recorded trophy toms for more than 10 consecutive years with the National Wild Turkey Federation Record Book Entries. In short, the greatest turkey hunting in the world is located in the State of Missouri. Wanna get a little more technical. Wild turkey populations in the State of Missouri are not equal throughout the state. Southern portions of the state do not hold the highest populations of birds. The highest population of wild turkey in Missouri are in the Northern Counties of Macon, Shelby, Adair, and Knox. These are the very counties you’ll be hunting in during your pursuit of a trophy tom or toms with IMB Outfitters.
Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri present the modern day turkey hunter with a pure species of Eastern Turkeys. The average bird our clients harvest is around 25 lbs, 10 inch beard, and over 1 ¼ inch spurs. Both fully and semi guided hunts are available with fully guided hunts averaging a higher success rate. Bottomline is if you can call in your own birds a semi guided hunt is really all you need.
In fact, during multiple years of business, IMB hosted the Hunter Specialties Outdoor Writers Convention, sponsored by Thompson Center, Hunter Specialties, and Husqvarna. Famed Outdoor Television Celebrity and HS Pro Staffer, Alex Rutledge spearheaded the campaign and was accompanied by the industries top outdoor writers as seen to the right.
Many of our hunters choose to hunt multiple states during their visit with us in the Spring. While you’re here you could hunt up to 3 states in one trip and harvest multiple birds as the seasons run simultaneously.
