McPillips Family Deer Hunting Tradition Continues

11/19/2011
no comments

The McPhillip family started a tradition four years ago, whitetail hunting at Heartland Lodge the opening weekend of Illinois gun season as a family. Dad (Vincent) hunts with Matthew while Mom (Joanne) enjoys the lodge and surrounding area.  Matthew McPhillip has a passion for deer hunting and was fortunate to take his first buck, the very first year he hunted at Heartland. This year Matthew did not waste any time. This 135” 9pt came out on opening morning and Matthew made a great shot. The McPhillip family is now part of our extend Heartland family and we are so proud of him!! Congratulations Matthew!!! See pictures of Vincent's 150" 10pt he took a day later here>>>

"My family and I have been coming to Heartland Lodge for 4 years now and are planning to return for a fifth. When we first started coming I was only 12 years old and wasn’t even old enough to hunt. However I came with my parents hoping to see some of the monster deer we knew we were hunting in this area, which is one of the greatest if not the greatest at producing trophy whitetails. That first year and every year since we were treated like part of the family. We became acquainted with all of the guides, the staff, as well as Gary and Miss Wanda who always had funny stories to tell about past hunts, traditions, as well as insight towards the hunt we were currently on. Every year we have come to Heartland lodge we have come away with a trophy whitetail." Read about Matthew's entire hunt here >>>
