| We specialize in heart pounding guided whitetail hunts in Jefferson and Franklin counties. These are two of the most successful whitetail counties in Illinois and receive half the pressure of more popular Illinois counties. Multiple trophy bucks are killed in Jefferson and Franklin counties each year.
Southern Illinois is famous for corn and soybeans which along with our areas great genetics produce some of the biggest bucks in the country!!!
We limit our hunters and do not over hunt our lands! We are in business to put our hunters on big Southern Illinois bucks and make sure they have a good time. Our hunts are 100% fair chase. We can't control mother nature, therefore we can't guarantee you a trophy buck. What we do guarantee you is that our properties have multiple trophy bucks on them and we will work very hard to make your hunt a successful one.
When hunting with us you will be hunting hardwoods, thick bottom lands, agricultural fields, CRP, fence rows, and food plots.
We have properties that we designate as bow hunting only. This assures us good archery hunting late into the season. Illinois now offers a December crossbow season!!
We own and lease thousands of quality whitetail acres. Rest assured that if you book a hunt with us you will be hunting QUALITY whitetail acres!!
We maintain a 125 inch minimum on our bucks. This ensures us years of quality hunting. We have a penalty of $500 for shooting a buck below our standards.
We are REAL people who were blessed to be born and raised in the BIG BUCK capital of the country.
