IMB Outfitters
The Best in the Midwest

Hunt IowaHunt IllinoisHunt Missouri

IMB Outfitters is the most qualitative "Trophy Whitetail Deer Hunting Service” in the nation, located with premium lodges and trophy whitetail deer hunts in Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri. IMB Outfitters is a trusted name in the Whitetail Deer Industry as we have been offering trophy whitetail hunts in the Midwest, full time, since 1999.  No other “Free Roaming Whitetail Outfitting Hunt Service in America has accomplished higher quality standards than IMB Outfitters.  The hunting industry seldom mandates any hunt outfitting service to follow a set of business guidelines, thereby leaving ample opportunity for hunt outfitters and hunt guides to deviate from a high quality standard of business.  It is vital to hunt with a high quality whitetail deer hunt service if you wish to be successful.

Today’s hunt industry generally presents 3 types of hunting outfitters: 

  • The first type defined is the "Factory Outfitter":  This is a hunt service that simply runs too many hunters over too little ground as if producing product in a factory on an assembly line.  The factory outfitter is solely focused on money and has no regard for hunter success, or providing high quality hunting standards. 
  • The 2nd type of hunt outfitting service is “The Redneck”:  There are thousands of hunting outfitters that have very cheap prices and provide a sub standard hunting experience due to a lack of business knowledge and resources.  It seems like “the redneck” is the country boy that purchases a lease, proclaims themselves to be a hunt outfitter, and then doesn’t have the business savvy nor knowledge to offer any kind of quality hunt experience.  Remember when you purchase a hunt if your not successful then you have essentially failed.  Don’t let your sole focus be the lowest price or you’ll find yourself hunting with “the redneck”. 
  • The 3rd type of hunt outfitting service is a "Minority Group":  This 3rd type of hunt service is the hunt outfitting service that is a genuine success that has great lodges, great hunt land, great employees, great hunt strategies, and knows how to make certain that there hunters are happy and successful.  After nearly 20 years as the President of a successful whitetail hunting outfitting service I am convinced great hunt outfitting services comprise less than 5% of all hunt outfitting services.  They are simply hard to locate, but once you find a great hunt outfitting service the experience is worth it’s weight in gold.
