Illinois Whitetail Deer Hunting

We offer the ideal environment for harvesting Trophy Whitetails. 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 hunting opportunity. We have 4,000 + 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 some of the biggest bucks in the country. Only Pope and Young bucks scoring 130 inches and larger may be taken which allows for optimal maturation of bucks.

Our Land is scouted for Successful Hunts

In addition to this big buck refuge, our land is scouted thoroughly throughout the year to maximize your chances for a successful hunt. We have up to 300 or more lock on and ladder stands ready and in position. Currently we use the top Ladder and Loc-on Stands on the market. Over the years our guides have found that close tree steps and ladder sticks are appreciated by our hunters. Most stands are positioned between 17′ and 20′ in height. Our guides are family and friends that have spent hours scouting our properties and are ready and willing to work for you!

The Buck population and our hard work keeps our hunters returning annually

Illinois Ohio Valley Trophy Hunts guarantees the work ethic and dedication required to provide you with the hunt of a lifetime. Our hunters are not only impressed with the bucks on our land but also the extraordinary quality and management of our food plots. Our vast acreage of high protein food plots continue to amaze our hunters each year. We believe it’s, not only our buck population, but also our hard work that keeps our hunters returning annually.

“Jarod, I just dropped my 140 inches class trophy 10 pt Whitetail Buck off at my taxidermist on my way home from Illinois Ohio Valley Trophy Hunts once again, this is getting to be a habit. This was my 4th trip out of the last 5 years, and if not for the economy it would have been 5 out of five years. Thanks to the help of your talented guide, Brandon Whitmire working hard for each hunter to have an opportunity to be successful, I connected on another Illinois Trophy. I have hunted Whitetails throughout the USA,  Canada, and South America for Red Stag with many outfitters. Illinois Ohio Valley Trophy Hunts are second to none. Your Main lodge as well as your outpost lodge’s are all 1st class. We are always well fed and cared for with great home cooking and warm comfortable beds. Whatever the need of any hunter at any time of the hunt, you and your staff were always there for us.
Looking forward to next year & another great hunting experience. “
