How We Prep for YOUR Hunt:

Another Trophy Deer taken with Illinois Ohio Valley Trophy HuntsWe work hard year round to give you the best possible opportunity that we can in the wild to get that Pope and Young or Boone and Crockett Buck. We have implemented a year round food plot system with the new addition of our bull dozer to give you outstanding opportunities at trophy animals. We plant Clover, Alfalfa, Chicory, and other high protein legumes to provide for those super racks. We also plant Corn, Milo, and Sudan as well as wheat and beats to get the herd through the rough winters and give you late season hunters the opportunities at the giants coming in to feed. With the addition of the Bull Dozer we now have quite foot paths back in the secret areas of thickets where we have small food plots and stands set up for bow hunters to have the 20 yard shots.


We have several packages to choose from. Hunt 3 or 5 days with discounts available for groups. Bow, Muzzle Loader and Gun hunts – Guided or Semi-Guided options. Contact us for more information an pricing: Call Jarod – 618-559-2967
