Default Semi-Guided Pike County Illinois Trophy Whitetail Hunts - From $1400

Illinois Trophy Whitetail Hunt
in World Famous Pike County

Semi-Guided Hunts (Archery, Muzzleloader, Shotgun)

As you may know, Illinois is home to some of the largest whitetail bucks ever taken. We offer semi-guided whitetail deer hunting on our exclusive hunting properties in the famous Pike County, Illinois. Our properties are located in the "golden triangle" of Illinois. Our food plots consists of corn and soybeans growing in the agriculture-rich soils between the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers.

Our outfit is growing a little every year--a little more land, and a few more hunters. We are small when is comes to the amount of hunters we have each year, but we are big when it comes to our success! In 2003, Twenty-nine hunters harvested nineteen bucks. That percentage of success is above most outfitters opportunity rates. We usually run around 50% success and 80% opportunity. We pride ourselves maintaining quality deer herds.

The bucks we took in 2004 were a 202", 2-180"s, 2-170"s, 3-160"s, 2-150"s, 7-140"s,and several 120"s and 130"s

Just have a look in our photos below to see some of the monster Pike County bucks our hunters have taken!

A Message From the Outfitter:

Hello hunters, Todd Chapman here. I started deer hunting in 1979 just outside my native Columbus, Georgia. I have spent countless hours studying deer behavior. In 1991, I made the decision to be a trophy hunter. At that point, I did not even have a buck on the wall. In 1992, I took an 8 pointer and a 10 pointer with my bow. All the sudden letting the little bucks walk was starting to pay off. I was hooked on big bucks! I took my first trip away from home to hunt south Texas in 1995. I had a certain image in my mind of the buck I wanted to take. I passed up several real trophies. Even a 150 inch 11 pointer. Boy was that a mistake! I didn't see anything bigger. However, I did manage to spend around $5000 dollars to only come home with a javelina and a hat. I call that trip my "expensive depression". I did go back the next year and harvest a nice 9 pointer and 11 pointer.

In 1997, I set my sites on Alberta, Canada. I took a 181 inch monster whitetail that field dressed 281 lbs on the fourth day of my hunt. I kept going back to Canada and kept bringing home good bucks. But nothing like the first year.

In 1998, I had a friend tell me about Pike County, Illinois. So in 1999, I added Illinois to my hunting adventures. I took 5 of my hunting buddies with me. We all paid someone for a semi-guided hunt. I did all the work for my hunters to have good trip while someone else made the money. In 2000, the same thing happened. Only this time, I had 13 hunters with me to take care of. After that year was over, I had a high demand for more hunters to come with me the next year. I decided that I needed to go out on my own, so I started contacting landowners to book exclusive hunting trips in Pike County, Illinois. This leads us to now. I have the desire to see smiles on my hunter's faces. I have the desire to see monsters on the ground. It's what I love and what I am good at. If I can't provide quality tracts of land to hunt, I cant stay in business. I will do everything I can to ensure that your hunting trip is a successful one.
