2013 Whitetail Hunts Available

Last Updated: 06/08/2013

John Brewer's Illinois Whitetail BuckNow is the time to reserve your 2013 deer hunting dates, especially if you want to come during a prime time.  We have some great whitetail hunting dates available, but they won't last long.  Most of our prime dates fill up early.  We had a good 2012 whitetail season with many of our hunters rebooking for 2013.  Unusual weather made some weeks great and other weeks slower.  One thing we do know is that a lot of nice bucks made it through the season and will add growth for next year!  This should make 2013 an incredible year for trophy whitetails.  Not all of our hunters have the ability to rebook as financial and family commitments prohibit them from coming each year.  This leaves a few hunts available for each week.  Also Thanksgiving will be a week later in 2013 giving us an extra archery rut week!  Please call us today to book your hunt for this fall. 800-717-4868.

Re: 2013 Whitetail Hunts Available
I might be interested in the week of thanksgiving hunt or maybe the week after hunt, but I have to wait and see cause I will be having rotator-cuff surgery and have to see how the recovery goes. So if you could please keep me posted on those times that would be great. Thanks Robert Hall

Re: 2013 Whitetail Hunts Available
Will do Robert! I hope it goes well. I had a similar surgery so I understand what you are going through. Good luck! Gary

Re: 2013 Whitetail Hunts Available
Looking into a possible hunt for my husband in 2013 and am curious as to what is or is not included in the hunt pricing.

Re: 2013 Whitetail Hunts Available
How good is January hunting?What are the chances of shot opportunities on shooters?

Re: 2013 Whitetail Hunts Available
Alfe, January can be tough. It depends on the weather. If we get really cold or snowy weather it can be very good catching them coming into the feed source.

Re: 2013 Whitetail Hunts Available
I'm confused on the hunts. Is the fee just the fee to hunt? Does it include lodging/meals?
