Turkey Hunting in Illinois

October 26, 2018- Illinois Turkey Hunting Report- We had a great spring turkey season this year in Illinois and the spring season of 2019 is looking to be an even better one. We saw several jakes this past spring season and have been spotting several healthy hatches of poults throughout the summer and fall. The 2019 turkey season here in Illinois is going to be one to remember! The first drawing is coming up to get tags soon, now is the time to book!3 tom turkeys strutting in illinois

Turkey Hunting at Heartland Lodge

Heartland Lodge was designed with you, the hunter, in mind. Enjoy turkey hunting in Pike County, Illinois. An abundance of CRP fields mixed with fields of milo and hardwoods present habitat ideal for turkey hunting.

Turkey hunting at Heartland is a favorite among hunters visiting the lodge. This area has a long tradition of turkey hunting. You will enjoy this turkey hunting lodge with three hearty home-cooked meals every day. After the hunt, relax next to the large stone fireplace in our Great Room or enjoy a game of pool in our recreation room. The relaxing atmosphere of the lodge is something you will look forward to after each full day of hunting.A thick bearded tom harvested in west central illinois at heartland lodge turkey hunting outfitters

A Turkey Hunting Tradition

Your stay with us is more than a turkey hunt. It’s part of a strong hunting tradition that started back when Heartland’s owner, Gary Harpole, was a child. Each year new traditions are being created by our guests. It’s our hope that you create your own memories at Heartland with your family or friends and carry on a tradition that started many years ago.
