Located in the southern most part of Illinois in the fertile Ohio River Bottoms, our area is known as the Deer Capital of Illinois. We offer the ideal environment for our valued customers to harvest that Trophy Whitetail Deer.
The natural make-up of our land coupled with the extensive time and effort put into enhancing our property provides you with the best Trophy Deer Hunting opportunity.
We have almost 11,000 acres of private land consisting of crop lands, white-oak acorn forests, swamps and sloughs around the old Ohio River bottoms. In addition, a fertile soil has allowed us to produce rich food plots creating a sanctuary for reclusive Monster Bucks. A multitude of secret food plot mixes are interspersed throughout our properties which serve to maintain and enhance our Big Buck population. Our area has produced bucks scoring 209"+ Typical and 250+" Nontypical B & C. Only Pope & Young bucks scoring 130" and bigger may be taken which allows for optimal maturing of Bucks.
In addition to this big buck refuge, our land is scouted thoroughly thruout the year to maximize your chance for a successful hunt. We have 300 or more ladder & lock-on stands strategically placed. A successful hunt hinges on experienced guides who can pinpoint a buck's travel pattern. Our guides have grown up in the area & watched these Big Buck hot spots all their lives!
