You should be excited man, the biggest whitetails in the country come out of Illinois. & Macoupin county is no different than Pike county. The same food & mineral sources are found throughout most the state. What makes western Illinois different from any other part of the state is herd management. Over in w. Illinois they take management very serious & they have the deer to show for it.

If you can show the deer on your lease the attention that is necessary to grow big bucks, 140 class deer will be the youngins on your land.

Good luck with the new property.
