Hunting lease land under contract with Mid-America Hunting Association for membership exclusive use.
For those that enjoy good hunting without the hassle of knocking on doors or the competition of public land. We offer such hunting land in Kansas, Iowa and Missouri. And, only those states. We are not expanding. We are in quality enhancement not quantity of trying to be in too many states or have too much land than we can monitor. It does take contract duration and seasonal eyes on the land to insure we get what we pay for.
Hunting lease land diving distances shows these states are closer than many think and most agree it is better to drive a bit farther for better hunting land than a shorter distance and go nature walking.
Where The Hunting Land Is
Shown below are the hunting lease land locations within Iowa, Kansas and Missouri. Posted are the county name, relative location within that state and the hunting lease acreage amount within that county.
Iowa hunting lease land is located in non-resident deer zone 4 and zone 5.
It is all contained within spring turkey zone 4.
All of the Association hunting land is within the upper fringe of the Grand River Watershed rising north from Missouri. It is composed of grass, brush and wooded drainage's both wet and dry cutting through the crop fields connecting wood patches. The combination of cover and food is repeated many times. Predominate crops in this rich soil and good rainfall locality are soybeans and corn.
Iowa hunting covers deer, turkey, quail and pheasant.
Waterfowl is limited to dry sets and mostly for return migration goose.
Kansas hunting lease land covers deer management units 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 16.
All of the Association land is within watershed regions. Or, where grain crops are grown. The Association does not lease any land in the hill country (pasture).
Kansas crops have the most diversity of the three state region. Corn, soybean, wheat, milo and alfalfa will be found in many regions both irrigated and dry land.
Kansas offers the most diversity of wildlife compared to Iowa or Missouri. Kansas has Mule and Whitetail Deer, Eastern and Rio Grande Turkey, quail and pheasant and the Prairie Chicken as a bonus. Waterfowl is limited to farm ponds, watershed lakes and crop sets. Ducks are found in sufficient numbers along the eastern region getting better the further traveled into Missouri. Goose hunting can be very good on the crop fields near state refuge wetlands.
Missouri hunting lease land is all within the grain farming regions of west central and north Missouri. No land is leased in the Ozark Mountain Region. The idea as is in Iowa and Kansas is hunt where there is food for the better hunting.
Missouri has the most turkeys of the three states. Missouri has the highest deer density. Missouri historically has the most quail coveys. Missouri certainly excels at waterfowl. All of the Associations wetlands work is in Missouri where the central and Mississippi Flyways converge.
What Missouri lacks are pheasants. Iowa does half as good as Kansas when it comes to pheasant hunting with Missouri not in consideration. Any pheasant harvested in Missouri should be considered a bonus.
Bryan. Hunt the buck of choice. Many personal bests have been tagged on Association land.
Hunting lease land acreage comparison to hunter pressure by state and hunting discipline. The idea is to get across to the hunter that yes, he will share the land with others - maybe. It is also true he will be on unpressured land having a choice of where to hunt each day. It is by covering ground to find what he is after is where the basis for success comes from. The contrast would be to have all the hunter's eggs in one basket. Or, just one hunting spot of say a thousand acres and hope luck falls to his favor.

Lonnie. All may hunt their own style. All have the choice of the entire season of when to choose to hunt. All hunt at their own pace. All of that combined leads to a tranquility of enjoying the hunt without any hassle.
Putting It All Together
Hunting lease land is what we provide. That along with recommendations where to hunt and a lodging listing. After that what the hunter must provide for himself is that which he can do easily. That is travel, meals, licensing and, of course, his own hunting skill. We will assist the self guided hunter. We will insure he is going to the right region in each state for what he is hunting. Then recommend down to the farms with the habitat that supports his hunts. However, once on the property it is the hunter that decides how the hunt will proceed.
Lease quality is a frequent inquiry of those anticipating applying for a membership.
The answer is that not all of our acreage has game productive habitat for any one applicants hunting interest. A duck hunter is largely limited to our managed wetlands, farm ponds and watershed lakes. Deer hunters are always in search of the wooded patches along crop fields. There are too many to quickly narrow down. Pheasant hunters want large stands of tall grass prairie. Quail hunters seek wide soft edge habitat on milo fields.
The point is with our approached to hunting lease land we seek to accommodate all game interests. That does require regional dispersion meaning the hunter will have to travel to where the game of choice is.
The advantage to this approach includes that while a deer hunter enjoys the wooded creek bottom and over grown fallow pasture the quail hunter hunts the edges. Together these two hunters pay for the land both at a much lower cost than either could pay for it as a single use ground. Multiply this many times over and that is how all hunters may hunt multiple properties without competition from others.
Add to these two facets the more than 1/2 of the Association hunters come from 37 other states besides Kansas, Missouri or Iowa. Most hunt that one to two weeks a year further prevents overcrowding or too much pressure on the game.
All of the above is management of the hunter/member. When it comes to the habitat we will not say that 100% of it is huntable habitat. We have contracts on active large and small farms, fallow farms, trust land, CRP, investment and corporate farms. They all have a great variety of uses with varying habitat. Trust your Association partners to ensure the hunter is on the right habitat for what he is after. That land will also be in the right region of the state with huntable population of his game.
Why trust the Association partners? It is they seek return hunters for years, not just one hunt. They know full well the hunt quality anticipated by the hunter. Meeting those expectations is where they fill in the gap. Doing so keeps food on their table and that is the assurance the hunter has the Association will provide the best self guided hunts possible on private land hunting leases.
