Illinois Archery Hunts

Archery Hunting in Pike County IllinoisAugust 13, 2019 – Pike County, IL Archery Report – “Our Illinois archery season is just around the corner! We’ve been busy maintencing our clover plots and getting in our fall food plots before the rain moves in later this week. We’ve had some giant velvet bucks show up on trail camera, be sure to check them out in our trail camera gallery! Counting down the days for the archery opener on October 1st here in Illinois!” 

Illinois bow hunting for whitetail deer is as good as you will find anywhere in the country. Archery hunters enjoy bow hunting in Illinois because of its generous season dates and quality of whitetail deer. If you enjoy whitetail archery hunting, then Illinois is the state for you! Heartland Lodge is located in prime bluff country deer habitat. The hilly terrain creates great funnels and pinch points that make for perfect ambush style hunts for bowhunters.

Bow Hunting Whitetails with Pike County Illinois’ #1 Outfitter

We take archery hunting very seriously at Heartland. All the guides working at Heartland are avid and accomplished archers. Even our housekeeper is a diehard bow hunter. (She currently holds the world record for largest turkey ever taken with a bow by a female!) Bow hunting for whitetails is a year-around job: trail cams, scouting videos and shed hunting in the spring are all part of our annual whitetail scouting program. You won’t find anyone more passionate about whitetail archery hunting than the staff at Heartland Lodge!
