Iowa hosts more than 250,000 hunters annually. These hunters make 3.5 million visits to Iowa's 340 public hunting areas. Iowa is known as a premier upland bird hunting destination in the midwest. Pheasants, quail, cottontail rabbits, and squirrels are Iowa's most popular upland game species. In addition to the public hunting areas, Iowa also offers a wide variety of hunting preserves.

Depending upon the hunter's needs, Iowa hunting preserves can provide a variety of services, including (but not limited to) prehunt clay shoots, experienced hunting guides, quality trained bird dogs (Retrievers and pointers), game processing/packaging, meals and lodging. Hunters desiring privacy, high quality hunting habitat, a variety of hunting conditions and an outstanding demonstration of dog work (many preserves do allow hunters to bring their own dogs) will enjoy Iowa's hunting preserves.

The state of Iowa offers excellent pheasant hunting opportunities and licensed hunting preserves provide hunters with an option of fast action in a relatively short time frame.

In 1996 we became a state licensed hunting preserve and added a neighboring farm (Total of approx. 600 acres). We seeded our pastures to prairie grass and started planting corn & sorghum plots for more cover and feed. Since the state requires that we replace the birds harvested, plus 20%, we add to the native population by releasing birds that have been raised on a farm that has 80 acres under high netting.
