With almost 4,000 acres of prime Southeast Iowa land, Midwest Whitetail Outfitters sits firmly in the land of the giants. Located just outside of Burlington you’re worlds away from the average whitetail hunt. We manage the property, and we only guide a select few hunters each season. We work hard to maintain the quality of whitetail deer to assure that each hunter has the potential to harvest the buck of a lifetime. When you finally get the chance to hunt Iowa and our abundance of trophy whitetail bucks, you may never be the same.
