This trophy whitetail hunt takes place in the heart of Illinois’ big buck country. Our outfitter owns exclusive hunting rights to 13,000 managed acres in Pike, Brown, Adams and Schuyler counties. There are over 250 acres of food plots spread across over 100 different locations. In the past 11 years, hunters have taken hundreds of bucks scoring over 150” with 20 B&C bucks harvested. The outfitter has a 125” minimum. The average whitetail harvested scores between 140-160” with many taken in the 150-170” class. Year after year, shot opportunity for gun and archery hunters has been 60+%. The outfitter owns over 500 time-tested tree stands so each guide can ensure quality stand placement for every phase of the rut and various wind conditions. Each guide takes 2-3 hunters on a 600-800 acre tract of ground that he has scouted and guided year after year. The outfitter’s main lodge is 4,800 square feet with a dining facility with full commercial kitchen, a large recreation room with HDTV, pool table and lounge area. Hunters stay in the surrounding modular homes; each having 2-3 full sized bathrooms, washers and dryers, kitchen, and changing rooms to store your hunting cloths and gear. If you book your hunt by June 1, 2017, you are nearly guaranteed a tag. If you are looking for a trophy buck, quality hunt, and the very best accommodations, call us.
