This was my 9th year coming to Illinois for Trophy Whitetail. I've been to several outfitters in the past 5 years due to my outfitter moving and it was a rocky adventure to say the least. Ive brought as many as 9 guys with me to Illinois in the past and recently started using Matt (last 2 years). This year was by far the best year we have had out in Illinois to date. The weather was in the 30's everyday and the bucks were in full rut !! We had a total of 18 guys in camp for the week of Nov 9th thru Nov 20th and out of those 18 guys ... 13 killed bucks over 130's .. 5 being over 150's and mine being 178 inches. SO what does that tell you !! If your looking for an outfitting service thats going to pamper your every move ... Then this camp is not for you (maybe they do provide this type of service) but if your looking for an outfitter that knows his property's and what type of deer they hold .. This is the place .. I seen more bucks in this trip then in the past 5 years combined .. Yes the weather was good and the bucks were in full rut but you still have to have the property to hold them .. and Matt does !! Matt and his guides go out and beyond to help put these trophy bucks in front of you but you still have to be a hunter. As for the accomodations ,, You stay in a comfortable farm house but you have to provide your own food. In closing, If your looking for a hunt with a great chance to kill a trophy buck here it is !!
