TROPHY WHITETAILS & SPRING TURKEY Sand Rock Outfitters offers you the hunt of a lifetime. Whether you want to bag a big rack buck or a long beard turkey we have the trophy managed land, experience and knowledge to make your hunting trip unforgettable. HUNT INFO Weather Conditions The weather in the Northern Missouri and Southern Iowa during the deer hunting season is like most places, somewhat unpredictable. Depending on the date of your hunt, daytime temps can range from 20-70 degrees and nighttime temps can range from zero to 40 degrees. Snow is a definite possibility during our November, December and January hunts. Please plan your clothing accordingly. Airlines Flights are scheduled daily into the airport in Des Moines, IA. Car rentals are available at the airport and preferred. Those of you who plan to arrive by air should plan on arriving the afternoon of the day before you scheduled hunt. Hunter's Education Card Every hunter born on or after Jan. 1, 1967, unless hunting on a Youth Deer & Turkey Hunting Permit, must have completed an approved hunter education program and display a hunter education certification card to buy any firearms hunting permit. A hunter education card need not be displayed if certification can be verified at the vendor's computer terminal. Blaze Orange With the exception of archery hunters, all hunters MUST wear hunter orange that is visible from all directions. A hat and vest are sufficient. Camo orange does not meet this requirement. Deer Hunting in Missouri and Iowa Deer hunting in Missouri and Iowa can be challenging and exciting. But there are times when things just don't go as planned. Weather conditions can change flight days and times, force last minute changes in hunt locations, and hunting schedules can change rapidly. These things have and will continue to happen from time to time. Outfitters and guides have learned to accept them and we would like to think that our hunters will too! We are all well aware of the challenges encountered during hunting. No matter what the outcome, you are sure to have many lasting memories to look back upon. Hunt Cost Explanation Clients sometimes ask why outfitted hunts cost so much money. One answer might be that you get the service you pay for. A more detailed explanation encompasses a whole list of "behind the scene" moneys that an outfitter must pay. Most outfitters own or lease their own exclusive hunting grounds. These areas can cost up to several thousand dollars. A top notch guide can cost upwards of $100 dollars per day. Fine food and good cooks are also expensive. When you factor in insurance (worker's comp and liability), permits, taxes, equipment replacement and repairs, trucks and insurance, etc., one can clearly understand the outfitter's profit is not what you might presume. Basically, big game hunting is not cheap but we try to keep it as affordable as possible. With this in mind, when shopping around for big game hunts, beware of the price that sounds too good to be true; it probably is. Health Hunts can be physically challenging. This may include moderate walking on other than level ground. Please let us know of any health or physical conditions that you might have. Accommodations can be made. Special Dietary Requirement: For those hunters who have special requirements for their diet, we are more than happy to accommodate you with advance notice of your specific needs. Animal Identification & Wounding Policy Please be sure what you are shooting at. We have a 130" minimum on all of our properties in Missouri and a 140" minimum on all our properties in Iowa. Sand Rock Outfitters puts a lot of time and effort into managing our properties. Therefore we do have a Habitat Fee of $500.00 for any buck shot under the minimum in Missouri and $1000 for any buck shot under the minimum in Iowa. Target identification is of utmost importance. If you wound an animal because of a shot that should have not been taken (like a shot at their rump going through the woods), we do not consider this sportsman's like. There will be no exceptions. We expect all hunters to be sportsmen and have the utmost respect for the animals for which you are hunting. Keeping this in mind, only a high quality shot is to be made on the animal. Arrival and Departure We ask that you plan your arrival for anytime after 1pm the day before your scheduled hunt. We will be serving dinner the night of your arrival. We ask that you depart the morning after your hunt ends before 10am. This ensures the staff enough time to prepare for the next hunters arriving. Thank you for your cooperation. RATES AND DATES Price of Hunts The listed price of your hunt does not include your license cost, game processing, shipping of meat, taxidermy service, any tips for your guides or cooks. Your guided hunt does include lodging, all meals, tree stands, and professional guide service. Price is per hunter. Deposit & Refund Policy Upon confirming a trip, a 50% deposit is required to secure the date of your hunt (once tag is drawn remaining half will be due). All deposits are nonrefundable. However they may be transferred to another hunter to fill you spot if necessary. Hunter should contact Sand Rock Outfitters as soon as possible if a cancellation should be necessary. We accept personal checks, cash, credit cards, money orders, and bank checks. Final Payment Your final payment will be due by September 1st. This payment must be cash, credit card, personal check, money order or certified check.

MO Turkey Hunt

Took a very nice bird; just under 25#, 1-5/8" spurs and 11.5" beard. Lodging was fine and they worked to be sure you had good opportunities. Would recommend.
