Here's what a few of our customers have had to say about us.
Have a testimonial of your own to share?
I just wanted to say thanks for a great time this year. We came and hunted very hard for 5 days in early October and what an experience.
We had opportunity at some shooter bucks and I saw two of the biggest bucks I have ever seen. The accommodations were awesome, the food was incredible and the friendships we made were unforgettable. I highly recommend Northwest Missouri Outfitters to anyone looking for a great hunt and a great time. I will be back next year and for years to come.
Both Adam and I had a great time through the duration of our stay and were really impressed with the guides, lodging, food, and most of all the deer! You run an outstanding operation! We were very fortunate to see a lot of deer, which is something were not accustomed too. I saw plenty of deer chasing, fighting, and cruising! I saw somewhere over 65 to 70 deer in the stand and that was awesome! Some people say that going on a paid hunt is just about killing a deer, but its more about the experiences you have on the hunt, and the kill is just an added bonus! and thats what you did for us.
Even though only one of us came away from there with one buck, and the other with a monster Doe there were NO Disappointments. Both the Buck and Doe were the two biggest deer we've ever seen or killed. I am very proud of what I killed and this trip will always hold a special place in my heart. Feel free to use me as a reference anytime, and I do plan on coming back!
Through all the hype i forgot to take any pictures with my digital camera and was wondering if you can send me yours through email? if there is an easier way let me know!
Once again I would like to thank you so much for the hunt of a life time and cant wait to come back there in the future!
I have been bow hunting now for 26 years and I have had the opportunity to hunt some of the most recognized trophy areas in the country and Canada. When possible I prefer to hunt a private property where I can do my scouting and strategizing as it is part of the challenge of harvesting a trophy buck. Though I have been fortunate to hunt many private lands there have been areas that I have wanted to hunt and the only way to do so was to pay for a guided hunt.
This past late season after shooting two mature quality bucks in my home state of Illinois, I didn't want to be done bow hunting so I decided to research areas with over the counter permits that I felt would yield quality animals. I looked into Kentucky, Indiana, Nebraska, South Dakota, Ohio, and Missouri.
After much research and visiting with various outfitters on the phone I made the decision to book my late season hunt with Dave Frampton of Northwest Missouri Outfitters. I was specifically looking to hunt over food sources out of a ground blind and also from tree stands. I told Dave what it was that I would like to try and accomplish while there on my hunt. He shared with me that they have been putting in allot of effort into food plotting, scouting and strategically placing stands for his clients to have success and felt that he could accommodate my requests.
My wife Gail accompanied me and we arrived on Sunday evening January 9th because a huge front carrying allot of snow with it was to start early the next day (Monday) and go through Tuesday and with it brought sub zero temperatures. This was the weather I was hoping for to get the deer up and moving on the food.
The evening when my wife Gail and I arrived, Dave took the time to show me aerial photographs of the properties they owned and leased (over 7,000 acres) and where he felt I would have my best opportunities based on their scouting prior to my arrival. He also had ground blinds set up for me prior to my arrival even though it was not something they had done before to accommodate my request.
Although Dave himself guided me all week it was evident that his guides were interested in how I was doing as well. One of Dave's guides Dan showed up on Monday and spent most of the day to help. Dave has a great group of guides that are dedicated to doing whatever they can to help their clients achieve success. They understand that if their clients leave satisfied that they will not only be back but they will tell others about their experience.
Another one of Dave's guides Kevin came on Friday and went out of his way to hang a stand where I felt one should be. Neither Dan nor Kevin were being paid to come and help as it was the last week of season and they had already finished their guiding and back to work at their full time jobs. It was rare for someone like me to come this late in the season.
I ended up hunting a total of 6 days and actually roughed the cold temperatures for 9 actual hunts. During that time I saw 87 deer and had encounters with what I would consider two trophy bucks. The first one was a beautiful young 8 pointer that would score 135" and I passed on him as I was holding out for something bigger as I have been fortunate to shoot some beautiful bucks and I had seen Dave's trail cam pictures and knew what was in the areas I was hunting. The second buck I would have definitely shot if he presented a shot but he only got within 60 yards of me. It was a legitimate 150" 10 pointer that Dave had pictures of.
During my time there Dave allowed me to be involved in the decisions of my hunt and he did not deceive me at all with regard to their efforts of food plotting. I hunted over, soy bean, corn, alfalfa, clover, and turnip plots and they were all productive. The food and the accommodations at his lodge were excellent as well. The rolling terrain of Northwest Missouri (just 10 miles south of Iowa) is an awesome habitat for producing great whitetails.
This was truly a great experience and I have made great friends with Dave and all of his crew. I will definitely be returning as they are not only working very hard to improve their lands and the quality of animals, they are knowledgeable, know their properties, and they want you to have success.
Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that I truly enjoyed meeting you and the crew (especially the cooks). It would have been a great time even if I had not scored. The big buck was just icing on the cake!
I hope to be able to visit again next year and look forward to it.
Tell everyone how much I appreciate them and I hope you and your bunch have a great Thanksgiving.
I have been dreaming for years about going on a big hunt excursion in the Midwest and when I choose Northwest Missouri Outfitters, I had no idea what I was in for. From the first conversation we had on the phone you were straight forward and honest with me, and the day I arrived at your camp, you and your crew welcomed me and made me feel right at home. The accommodations were exactly what I had hoped for, and each meal was top notch. I can’t say enough wonderful things about the cooks.
The first day of the hunt I was all set up at the right stand, and with the help of the Man upstairs, and my Son K.J. watching over me from above, I made the perfect shot later that afternoon. I harvested my dream buck, a 189” 18 pointer with my bow. Just the night before, my guide, Nate, had told me to “trust him” when he knew what was out there for me to find. Needless to say, I TRUST HIM!
I can’t say enough wonderful things about you and your crew. I not only had the hunt of a lifetime, but I made life-long friends in you and your crew, and in the other hunters from all over the country that where hunting with me that week.
I highly recommend your outfit and will be a repeat customer in the near future.
You can use me as a reference anytime.
Thanks again, my friend!
