The problem with most hunts in these premier areas of Illinois, is no one has enough ground to truly manage their deer. This outfitter has more than enough, and with a good management program and good food plots he has tremendous bucks on his property every year. Get more information »

Success Rates and Trophy Quality
Year in and year out they have consistently provided our clients with an average of 85% opportunity on 130” P&Y & larger bucks.

Good nutrition and genetics combined with age is the key to Illinois trophy whitetails. Illinois is one of the few states that can produce record book bucks statewide with more Pope & Young bucks per square mile than any other state.

This Outfitter practices a sound & effective herd management program with a 130 P&Y restriction to insure that bucks mature to an age conducive to the production of high end trophy racks. All of their hunts are guided on a series of private leases that consist of hardwood timber interspersed with corn, soybeans, alfalfa, & pasture on which they enjoy exclusive hunting rights.
