  1. I have 2 questions that I have in mind, 1st, are these free ranging deer and 2nd are the dates set up during the rut and what are the rut dates there, generally? I go west river in South Dakota every year to hunt mule deer and the dates are the 2nd saturday in november through the following week. Please get back to me when you can or give me a call at 605-520-4046. Thank you. Scott

  2. I am looking for a place to hunt for my fiance and his dad. His dad has just been diagnosed with bladder cancer and he loves to hunt. Please give me a price for 2.

  3. Thinking and talking with a hunting friend of mine to make the trip out for archery season. Is crossbow allowed in Illinois ? Is there a discount for two? And if my wife does not hunt what would be the cost for her ? Thanks Bob Vidulich

  4. The price that is giving, is that the final cost? Or is there additional costs ? Like hunting license, guide fee, trophy fee?

  5. I am looking for a late season Whitetail hunt. I saw the dates were Dec into January. I was wondering if you could give me exact dates, price for 2 and any additional information that you might have on kt

  7. I am disabled and hunting with yall is basically a fantasy for me because raising a family of 4 on a ssi buget is hard enough i seldom have the gas money to go to our wma 22 miles away so with that said thankya for the information and yall have fun sincerely William Hutcheson

  8. Interested in the muzzleloader only spot, if you could mail me final exact cost for lodging ect that be great, thank you. Look forward to barking off my TC on a 200 inch giant!

  9. Hi , I’m a disabled combat veteran who is looking for a place to hunt but guns are not my thing anymore. Is the archery season during any gun seasons. I would be interested to book a hunt if every thing is what I need to enjoy my time at your location. Ty USMC

    1. Thank you for your service Lincoln. Yes, you can archery hunt during some of the gun seasons. We would enjoy having you hunt with us. Thanks!

  10. Would like to know more buy the late-season hunt full cost license what I would need thank you please get back to me

  11. Interested in a October 3 day rifle hunt for 170+ whitetail. What is cost for the deer? What are added costs for guide, food and lodging?

  12. To all who are looking for a whitetail hunt in Illinios , look no further than heartland. Having hunted with them twice in the past with my hunting buddy Ron Isaac , I can tell you it’s a first class operation. From the time you arrive until your departure you’re treated like family by the entire staff. and as far as the bucks, Ron & I harvested around 470″ of antlers from 3 bucks.

  13. Can you send me the information and prices on your complete hunts. Lodging, meals and any other extras. Thank you.

  14. Is the December muzzleloader deer hunt in ground blinds near food plots? I am thinking about a December 2018 hunt with my inline muzzleloader I purchased last year (2016). I had a great time during my spring 2013 turkey hunt at Heartland Lodge. Thank you! Rod

  15. Heartland,
    My wife and I have hunting whitetail together for over 48 years. We are both getting where it is hard for us to walk great distances, especially if it is up hill. What is the average distance we would have to walk to get to our stands and are they tree are free standing stands.

  16. Wife and I are in our 70s and enjoy hunting whitetails. First time seeing your page, so we’ll be considering Heartland as we make our plans. Looks great. Thanks

  17. By chance do you have any other special offers for a little cheaper This is my first time dont know much about the in s and outs of the hunting process. I’m a advocate shooter and collecter of gun relics please advise would apperciate ur help.
