Default Hunting in Illinois or Ohio

I am looking for a place to hunt for big bucks in either Ohio or Illinois during the gun seasonfor my dad and myself. I am willing to pay a reasonable fee. If you have any information or know of someone that has some land to lease, please let me know.

I am not looking for an outfitter. I am looking for say a farmer that will let me access their land for a fee. I do not want to pay the outfitters prices.

Ill. is your best bet. I wouldn't even waste my time in Ohio. To many over priced leases and way too many hunters.

There are no deer in IL. Sorry. I guess when Blagojevich got voted out he took the deer with him to New York. Good luck looking in Ohio though!

Your gonna have to spend some time just beatin on doors, and talkin to people. Don't think it is impossible, still guys around that will let you hunt. You just need to weed past all the anti's, and the people that got burned by the guys that gave us a bad name.

There are no deer in Ohio and there are fewer people offering reasonable offers on leases. Anywhere in southeast Ohio is the place to look though if you want to. Illinois has alot of deer but I don't know how you would go about finding places to lease in either state.
