Rodhouse Rut-n-Strutt.

I made my first out-of-state deer hunting trip there last year in November.
Great lodge, great food, great guys and I saw LOTS of deer despite the horrid weather.

They're minimum shooter is 130". I had one shot at a "maybe" 130 but it was low light and I couldn't be sure. I'm not too good at judging antler size on the hoof yet (or anywhere for that matter[&:]) Lot's of other prolly 120 class bucks. This again was despite some horridly warm weather and a some stormy weather on the first night. Many shooters sighted by just about everyone, not too many taken though.

My guide was great, and most of them are pretty good to great with a few young guys that need a little schooling I think.

Illinois Trophy Bowhunters Inc. You may have a tough time getting a spot though they fill up pretty fast.

Im not here to compete, but you have to admit, this is a damn good idea my brother has done. This is a successful and tactical outfitter with the best ideas. He only takes around 14 or so hunters aa YEAR. the possibilities are outstanding. I have respect for my brother, not trying to grab as much money and hunters as he can. This is a very admirable and respectable outfitter.

There are alot of good outfitters all through the state. If you had some free time I would check out the deer and turkey classic towards the end of the month. Alot of outfitters will be there and show what they have to offer.

Good call. You can see Rodhouse Rut 'N Strut on Wadell's Raltree Roadtrips. It was a decent episode.
