Iowa Deer Classic

The premier hunting event in the country

The Iowa Deer Classic continues to grow and our 2019 expansion was a big hit…moving the seminars and big buck and shed contests and displays to the upper level and adding more great hunting booths. Look for even more great exhibits in 2021! Try out the latest in archery equipment. Shop hunting gear, accessories, clothing, blinds, tree stands and lots more. Talk to land management folks and hunting and fishing outfitters from throughout the U.S., Canada and Africa. Bring your antlers for official measuring, bring your bow for our 300 and 3D shoots, attend world-class seminars plus activities for kids. Thanks for your support and we’ll see you in Des Moines!

Iowa Deer Classic COVID Safety Precautions

The safety of all attendees, exhibitors, volunteers and event staff remains our top priority.  We have been working closely with the Iowa Events Center (IEC) and will follow state and county guidelines to determine all the necessary precautions we must take to have a safe and successful event.

These precautions are designed to not only keep everyone as safe as possible during the event, but to allow exhibitor participation and public attendance as well.  We thank you for working together with us!

Here are the safety protocols currently in place:

  • IEC will keep facilities clean and sanitized during the event.
  • Face coverings required.
  • Please social distance where possible.
  • Entrances will be split between the lower and upper levels.
  • Face coverings and hand sanitizers will be available at all entrances.
  • Hand sanitizers will be spread throughout the facility.
  • Buy your tickets online in advance!

We feel very fortunate to be able to host this event and wish a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.  We also ask that everyone leave their political opinions at home so we can escape the outside noise and celebrate the great outdoors.
