Illinois whitetail deer hunting with Illinois Ohio Valley Trophy Hunts is whitetail deer hunting at its finest. Illinois Ohio Valley Trophy Hunts guarantees the work ethic and dedication required to provide you with the whitetail deer hunt of a life time. We have a very high percentage return rate on Bow hunters. Our deer hunters are not only impressed with the bucks on our land but also the extraordinary quality and management of our food plots. Our acres and acres of high protein food plots continue to amaze our deer hunters each year.    


We have almost 8,000 acres of private land consisting of crop lands, white-oak acorn forests, swamps and sloughs around the old Ohio River bottoms. In addition, a fertile soil has allowed us to produce rich food plots creating a sanctuary for reclusive monster bucks. A multitude of secret food plot mixes are interspersed throughout our properties which serve to maintain and enhance out big buck population. Our area has produced bucks scoring 209″+. Typical 250+” Nontypical B & C. Only Pope & Young bucks scoring 130″ and bigger may be taken which allows for optimal maturing of Bucks.  


Trophy Whitetail Deer Hunts, Turkey, and Predator hunting in Illinois. We operate a family based operation that you have seen on the Outdoor Channel many times hunting with Mossy Oak, Browning, Hunters Specialties, Jay Gregory, BLOODLINE, and Craig Morgan All Access Outdoors. We offer deer hunts that are affordable but still yet give you that chance to take a 200″+ trophy whitetail. We have outstanding opportunities for bow hunters at Pope and Young Bucks and opportunities at Boone and Crocketts every year. We are looking for deer hunters wanting to find a home to hunt with us year after year. We are blessed to have some of our same hunters for 7 and 8 years straight. Give us a call we want to help you pull out that giant Pope and Young whitetail.  

In addition to this big buck refuge, our land is scouted thoroughly throughout the year to maximize your chance for a successful hunt. We have 300 or more ladder & lock on stands strategically placed. A successful hunt hinges on experienced guides who can pinpoint a buck’s travel pattern. Our guides go the extra mile using LARGE equipment to build food plots and pinch points for you to get a close shot at one of these Illinois Bruisers.


Fully Guided hunts include Lodging, Breakfast, Supper, and care of your animal. You will have a guide during your entire hunt but the guide does not sit with you in the tree. We will go over with you where you are hunting based on the weather and thermals and show you pictures and sheds of animals on that farm. You will know where you are going to hunt, what kind of stand it is, and why you are going there. We will be hunting on 8,000+ acres. 35% required upon booking remainder due 1 month before arrival. Arrive after 2:00p.m. the day before your hunt and depart by 8:00a.m. the morning after your hunt. No trophy fees – $750.00 management fee if you take an animal below 130″s Pope & Young.

“Hunting late season with Illinois Ohio Valley Trophy Hunts was awesome! After watching bucks the first couple nights I got on and killed a 141″ Pope and Young on January 6th. Thanks, Jarod for everything, this is a hunt I will never forget.” 

– Michael Brown , Front Royal, Virginia 







Southern Illinois has a booming turkey population and our privately managed acreage has an abundance of mature long beards.  Our hunters are amazed and excited to hear multiple turkeys every morning.  We scout our properties extensively to ensure the best opportunity for killing a mature long beard.  Over the years, we have developed turkey hunting strategies that have proven highly effective making our success rate nearly 100%.  Our guides will teach you some of these techniques; offering  you the same chance at success.  

Turkey hunts include lodging and fully guided 3-day hunt.  After a day of turkey hunting, you can return to the lodge for a quick nap, catch a movie on the big screen, sit by the campfire, go fishing or just relax.  These hunts book quickly and applications for permits are available in January.

*  To book a hunt you need to put down 35% deposit and send in a signed contract.

Our hunts include home cooked supper, guide during your entire hunt that will place you in stands and pick the best possible spots based on the wind and thermals.  We have basic breakfast items at camp but you will need to bring in your own lunch supplies and drinks.  We are very strict on our 130″ minimal score – we want the little bucks left out there for the future and there is a $750.00 fine for shooting a buck too small.  On arrival into camp we will set down and sign in your Permit and Hunting License numbers.
Please Please remember this is not a GUARANTEED HUNT we hunt in the wild and do the best we can – We can not guarantee you a buck kill.  You will need to wear a safety belt at all times when hunting elevated and at times we will need you to drive to a farm location.
The above hunts do not include your permit, hunting license, and habitat stamp.
You will need to get those on your own by calling the Illinois Depatrment of Natural Resources and or get on there website at
