Deer Hunting

Private Land Deer Hunting in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri

How it Works

We have tens of thousands of acres of private deer hunting land. All is posted to an online roadmap library showing how to get to every spot. Each spot is uniquely numbered, linked aerials, topos, GPS coordinates. Hunters make online or telephone reservations to the numbered spots for the days they want to hunt. Reservations keep hunters separate.

Hunters select their choice of season.

No one is limited to just one spot. Many hunt 3-5 spots during a weeks hunt.

May change locations during the day to a different spot.

We provide the land. Hunters provide all else.

Who We Are

We are Mid-America Hunting Association.

Since 1965 we have secured private land deer hunting leases exclusively for Association hunters.

Our advantage is no lodge, or no need to have leases within easy driving distance of a lodge. This means we make anywhere within each state available to us where to acquire acreage. When we spend money that we must earn it is spent where we will get a good return for our hunters.

Our approach is simple. One annual cost to hunt any Association lease. In all three states. Any time during any season. Pre-season scouting encouraged. Self guided hunts only.

Most hunters travel out for a week of their choice. Typically nine days. Two are travel, seven are hunting.

What We Provide

We provide private land deer hunting access. Exclusive Association hunter use. No sharing of our acreage. No franchising our organization. We simply concentrate on good hunts.

Recommendations are right to a point of where to park a truck, step out, get in stand. They should be considered starting points. Most will scout these spots along with our other surrounding Association land. Usually such scouting finds several desirable spots. This repeats its self to by most in their third season have found spots they like better to a point of no longer hunting their first year choices.

Hunter provides all else he requires. All scout, place out their own stands or blinds. Most will have a handful of spots they would consider first choice. Each may choose from day to day for where spend that day. Hunters may also change location during the day.

Advantage Through This Association

Most will cover somewhere between 2,000 to 4,000 acres fairly quickly settling on 3 to 5 spots they would consider first choice. That hunter would then make a reservation for where he wants to spend his time. Each may select from day to day any spot, changing locations or staying put to any one lease.

All can cover ground to find a buck of choice. Opposed ideas would be to find one single spot hoping something comes by.

Each may return season after season to a same collection of farms. On each trip he may add to his places he may want to hunt.

Spring turkey season is included for the same cost. Using spring season as a chance to further a scouting effort is common.

Field Quality Not Trophy

Self guided hunts inclusive of state regulation. No Association required trophy fees or penalty fees.

What we offer is private land deer hunting free from competition. On more than one lease. Over any one’s choice of the entire season.

Not perfect or having a higher success rate than any other option. We do our best. Most who try us one season agree they have not found anything better. We have a high return rate. Few quit for what they describe as bad hunts. We survive based on returning hunters with many having decades of years within their Association.

Enjoy The Hunt

Our approach allows every do it yourself hunter to enjoy a hunt to his own definition. Youth hunters may harvest any racked buck or doe included on any tag. Trophy hunters may seek their best yet trophy rack. No one will be led by their hand being told how or when. Most will have more than one stand. This all adds up to a feeling of satisfaction is achieved that all have hunted enough at the end of any trip.

About Doe Harvest

We do not have any doe harvest requirement. We encourage as many hunters as possible to harvest a doe or two each season.
