Many hunters will hesitate or are almost embarrassed about hunting in preserves, and from stories we have heard from other hunters. It has always been our priority to make sure your Timberghost experience is something you are proud to share with all of your hunting friends without any hesitation by putting the “hunt” back into preserve hunting.
The preserve encompasses just under 1000 acres of the finest whitetail habitat any hunter could hope to explore. Every decision at Timberghost has been strategically made with one goal in mind: producing the finest whitetail hunting habitat for our deer herd and our hunters.
With elevation changes of several hundred feet and old agricultural fields that have been reclaimed by vast sanctuaries of 6-foot-tall native prairie grasses broken up by an endless maze of wooded hollows that disappear into one of the many wandering creek bottoms throughout the ranch, it is perfectly nurtured whitetail habitat and truly an amazing place for the seasoned whitetail hunter to spend his time chasing monster whitetail deer. While our focus is on managing the habitat and an incredible whitetail herd most of the year, during season we are focused on making sure our guests have the hunting experience of a lifetime.
We have large comfortable enclosed blinds on many of our primary food plots along with ground blinds and ladder stands scattered throughout the timber. If you are on a fully guided hunt you may find yourself playing cat and mouse among the ridges and creek bottoms or even banging some horns together during the rut trying to rattle a monster Iowa buck out of the thickets. This incredible habitat helps ensure a challenging and authentic hunting experience for the most seasoned whitetail hunter throughout the hunting season.
To hunt Timberghost there are no tags to draw. There are no lotteries to win. It is as simple as making a phone call. Preserve hunters can use rifle, bow, crossbow, muzzleloader or pistol on most hunts. The only restriction on weapons is that during the Adventure hunts in November we only allow archery equipment.
All Preserve hunts include lodging, meals, guide, and license/tag. A 7% Iowa sales tax and shipping of the cape, antlers, or meat are not included in the cost of the hunt and while staff gratuities are always welcome they are at your sole discretion.
