I have rifle hunted 2 years in a row at Northwest Missouri Outfitters. These are professional people who work year round to make our hunting experience as great as they can. From creating food plots to scouting deer movement to providing great lodging and meals the staff works around the clock for us and that is why my group has booked again for the 3rd year in a row.

2019/2020 Rut Hunt - Michigan
Have hunted with NWMO for the past 2 seasons and have absolutely fallen in love with the camp, guides, land and the food. I had a successful hunt in 2019 and harvested a nice mature 8 and seen 4 shooters on my 2020 hunt but no dice. This is by far the top premier outfitter in Missouri hands down. The Owners are super genuine and you will for sure feel like money well spent regardless if a tag is filled. This is free range fair chase so nothing is guaranteed but if you hit the weather right you should have a great hunt. The stands are Lone wolf millennium or rivers edge so that enables you to hunt all day and maximize your time in the stand being comfortable. Could go on and on about how much i love this place already looking forward to 2021 season.

Turkey hunting has long been a hunt I ve wanted to try. Missouri is known for having MONSTER gobblers. I booked the trip with two close friends. The experience we had was absolutely top notch! I give this outfitter the highest marks, so look no further and book with Northwest Missouri Outfitters. They professionally manage an enormous amount of land, and you absolutely will see ALOT of turkey and deer. It s up to your shooting skills to get one, but you ll have the opportunity with these guys. (I probably saw close to 25 turkey in 2 days). All the guides are personable and down to earth, giving you the attention you deserve to get a trophy! The accommodations were clean and very comfortable, with each room having a bathroom. A huge man-cave is also there. The cooking was absolutely delicious!! They cook breakfast and dinner (with lunch being on you, but we usually had leftovers that the cooks would lay out for us from the previous night). I m sold on this outfitter, and we ll be repeat customers! Thank you, Cody (my guide) for calling in turkey for me! It was an unforgettable experience!!!
2019 - McDonough, GA
This will be my 9th season hunting at NWMO and I really can't find the words to explain how much I look forward to this trip every year. There's no better outfitter in the midwest in my opinion. When you hunt with Dave and his incredible staff you feel like family. If you're looking for an incredible hunting experience this is your place. See ya every November my friend.

Fall early season hunt 2019 - Westland, MI
Hey Dave, Justin and I just wanted to express what and absolutely wonderful time we had with you and your crew! You run an absolutely outstanding operation and we both feel very fortunate to have stayed with you. There were absolutely no disappointments! From the food, the land setup, to the actual hunt itself we could not have asked for a better outfitter experience. We walked away with yourself and your guides feeling like family to us. For some going on a "paid hunt" is just about a gaurentee to kill a monster buck, but to us (especially me) it was more about the experiences and knowledge you gain while hunting. A kill is never a guarantee but when and if it does happen is an added bonus. Justin came away with a buck and doe all in the same day fulfilling his dream of an out of state buck (the story is worth more than a thousand words). We both feel so grateful to have booked this hunt with you and will definatly be returning next year without question. ~ Brianna
Spring 19 - Nashville
Northwest Missouri Outfitters is a top notch outfitter. We had a great time. The food was amazing, hospitality was even better. Dave worked very hard to put us on birds each day. I would highly recommend this outfitter.
Hey Dave this is Heather Koch. I just wanted to let you know how much fun I had this past week. I was a bit intimidated at first being one of the only women, but I can’t even tell you how welcomed I felt. Even though I didn’t get a deer this time, we will for sure be coming back. You run a great business and I am very thankful that my first out of state hunt was with you guys. The food was excellent, the north lodge was great, and all of the people were so nice. Thanks so much for everything!

This is a awesome Place Bill he asked me what type of wood do I like and I told him and he hook me up I shot a awesome 11-point Bill call him the hook thank you and I'm planning on coming back soon
Fall 2017 - Lufkin tx
We went on a late October bowhunt, I cannot say enough about how this operation is staffed. Very accommodating, just all out good people. James was our guide and he was a blast to be around. Dave worked nonstop to try and get everyone in camp the best chance possible at a mature buck. In all honesty the weather was terrible on our hunt. Over 25mph sustained winds definitely slowed down the deer movement and we did not harvest anything. Although our hunt was “unsuccessful” by some people’s standards since we didn’t kill anything, I am going to consider it a success because we found an outfitter that we like and trust to do the best job possible. We plan to go back fall of 2018 and hopefully the weather will work with us this time. Also the food is great!!!!
Fall 2017 - Ringgold Georgia
Hey just wanted to take a minute and say what a class act outfitter stayed at one of the out camps and had a excellent time ,the food was wonderful, the house we stayed at was also first class, already booked for same week next year, told the guides what I was looking to harvest and they told everyone in camp that this was a fair chase hunt and that they would work hard to put everyone in camp on a buck of a life time ,on day two of my hunt i was successful in taken a 140s 11 point with double split eye guards ,and that’s what i had said that i wanted to harvest , Thanks Dave, Ryan, Bill, Nathan, for working so hard for the opportunities for every hunter that comes you’ll way to take a buck of a lifetime, my brother in law also went with me on this hunt and was able to see a lot of deer but wasn’t able to take anything back to Georgia because he was trying to kill one just like the natives used to with a traditional bow and missed but that’s why they call it hunting and not killing, the most important thing about a trip like this is the experience of meeting good people along life’s way and that’s what we found at northwest Missouri outfitters that’s why we already have made our deposits for next year and it’s also a plus if you get to take home a trophy buck ,but if not you can enjoy the hunt of a lifetime on these beautiful farms and spend time meeting new people and developing friendships that can last a lifetime look forward to see you guys again in a little bit stay safe and God bless y'all.
Fall 2017 - Saint Joseph Mo.
Had a great time. Outfit is top notch. Tyler Bates was my guide and did a remarkable job, worked his butt off for us.Food was second to none! I would recommend this Hunt to anyone.
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!
