  • Don't change a thing! I have been a lot of places and this tops them all! Everything from Matt making us laugh on the sporting clay range to Brad and his team of dogs that blew my mind in the field. These guides are so fun and friendly. Then top it off with the amazing lodge, service, and food. I haven't stopped smiling since I arrived at Heartland and I'm sure I will drive everyone back home crazy talking about this trip for months. Thank you so much for an unbelievable trip!

  • This is the second trip to Harpole's Heartland Lodge for a great experience once again.  We did the upland hunt last year and a combo hunt during this stay.  Great lodge, staff, and guests.  Guides are second to none and show my son the love of hunting which he can't get enough of. We will be back.

  • Overall, our experience was wonderful.  We enjoyed being members of the Heartland Lodge family.  Terry Abney was a wonderful guide and we enjoyed hunting with him and his dogs.  The overall upland hunting experience is top notch and I can't think of anything else to make it better.  Hope we can come back again in the future!

This Illinois sporting clays course is located on 25 acres that surround the beautiful Heartland Lodge. This clays course will be one that you will want to shoot again and again.
