Welcome to Legacy Acres
Legacy Acres, formerly known as Safari Iowa, is a family business operation between Curt Ritchie and Austin Blythe. Curt has been an employee of Safari Iowa for over 20 years and has an intimate knowledge of the operation, along with a lifelong passion for hunting. Austin has spent most of his life hunting. What he remembers most are the early mornings with his grandfather hunting either pheasant or deer. His excitement and passion for hunting make for a great business partner for Curt. The duo purchased the established business in 2018 with the goal to continue to honor the traditions our clients know and love. If it wasn’t for Larry and Jan’s hard work over the last 30 years at Safari Iowa, Curt and Austin wouldn’t have this opportunity to pursue what they love. The thanks and gratitude they have for the Statler’s shouldn’t go unsaid.
Our objective at Legacy Acres is to provide customers with a unique and enjoyable upland hunting experience that stands out among other hunting preserves. Services we currently offer include pheasant, quail and chukar hunting. Along with bird hunting we offer guide services to ensure that your hunt is fulfilled as possible and you leave feeling 100% satisfied. In the future we hope to implement turkey and deer hunting along with ponds to fish that our clients can enjoy. We look forward to providing an exceptional hunt for all of our clients. With access to over 1,000 acres of ground, you can expect private hunting fields that are filled with hard flying birds. We also employ staff that will make you feel at home and like family for the entirety of your stay. Along with our exceptional bird hunting experience, we can offer you and your friends or family a beautiful place to stay while you hunt. Our lodging, which includes 4 cabins and 1 home, offers our guests a serene and peaceful retreat from the hustle of the work week. It is our promise that if you choose to stay with us, you will experience first class bird hunting and cabin-like lodging!
