J&S was created in the late 1980s when Steve Shoop had an idea that had never been tried in the Midwest. He was the first outfitter in the entire Midwest, and the first to sell whitetail deer hunts at any sports show across the United States.
We maintain roughly 5,000 acres in Iowa and 5,000 acres in Missouri. We both lease and own some of the very best deer hunting ground you'll find anywhere. To make it even better, we manage our land for trophy animals with strict management policies that protect the natural genetics they are blessed with. Combine that with great food sources (acres of soybeans, corn, oats, wheat, turnips and more) and you've got trophy animals. It works!
Add in the best guides anywhere, tasty food, great accommodations, plus our honest desire for the hunter to succeed and you've got a great hunt in store.
We will do our best to get you the buck of your dreams. That's our promise!
