Coal Camp Outfitters is a full service whitetail hunting operation, family-owned and operated by Paul and Diane Havick. We are located in Lucas County in south central Iowa; Zone 5 for our non-resident hunters. Lucas County was home to a strong coal mining industry back in the early 1900s, with one of the larger mines located on our farm. Our land consists of approximately 3000 contiguous acres of very rugged terrain and provides prime deer hunting habitat.
In 2000 our family relocated to Lucas County where we own and operate a cow-calf operation. Over the years we have developed several designated hunting areas within the 3000 acres. Each hunting area contains designated deer bedding areas and food plots. It is our opinion that sanctuaries and food plots are essential to successful deer hunting. We have more than 50 tree stands and blinds strategically located throughout the hunting areas to take advantage of deer movement between bedding and food. This has made deer hunting at Coal Camp very predictable.
