If you are looking to have a whitetail deer hunting trip with a premier outfitter,Harpole’s Heartland Lodge is the place for you. Specializing in archery deer hunts, along with gun hunts, Heartland is the original deer hunting outfitter and lodge in Pike County – and they can absolutely boast the fact that trophy whitetail hunts have been their specialty for the last 21 years…and counting.

 

Harpole’s is rated the absolute best in all areas you can think of when it comes to having a hunting trip that is nothing short of spectacular. Even the outfitter staff deserves and receives an A+ across the board, offering you a truly dedicated and full-time whitetail manager, full-time assistant whitetail manager, support staff and guides who work year-round in order to ensure that your hunt is off-the-charts.

 

Beginning in the winter, Harpole’s staff scouts bucks that survived the fall hunting season and are looking for new tree stand locations. The staff then moves on to late winter and early spring which is filled with tasks, from walking the woods looking for whitetail sheds to over-seeding the clover food plots. Early spring is spent planting new food plots, while summer is spent maintaining the plots, glassing and videotaping deer that come into the fields, and checking trail cam photos. When the late summer months arrive, planting the brassica food plots and new clover plots take over the daily work, so that when fall once again appears, every single step of the process has been done. All that’s left is to guide you to the perfect spot so you can have the best hunt imaginable.

 

Harpole’s diehard crew also makes archery hunting available. This is a passion absolutely shared by the entire whitetail staff who shoot their bows year-round, always practicing and always looking forward to when that next archery “party” arrives.

 

Pike County Illinois deer hunting has become legendary, and Harpole’s Heartland Lodge is the reason for the unbridled thrills that whitetail hunters experience when they utilize Heartland as their chosen guides. It doesn’t hurt that you are talking about one of the most stunning areas in the country. Located in the middle of incredible Illinois deer hunting country, centered between the Mississippi and Illinois River drainages, Heartland has always provided large whitetail bucks the perfect habitat. They understand the four key ingredients to having a quality deer herd: genetics, food, habitat, and a good age structure. By understanding this, they have been able to produce huge bucks and quality whitetail deer hunting for over two decades. And with their strict management program in place to preserve growth, Heartland continues to be at the top of the list for hunters who are searching for whitetail bucks not found anywhere else.

 

Harpole’s Heartland Lodge also provides first-class accommodations. Even though hunters may not think this is as important as the hunt itself, having a good night’s sleep and a great meal are just as important as the aim you bring with you. And at Heartland, receiving a comfortable bed after a long day’s hunt is the perfect way to “cap” off the day.

 

Various archery and gun hunting packages are available to one and all, but booking needs to begin as soon as possible, seeing as that Heartland’s customers continue to be repeat customers who will make sure they snag one of the pristine packages. Packages run from the Four-Night, Three-Day November Packages to Five-Night, Four-Day December Packages; Four-Night, Three-Day Muzzleloader Packages to Seven-Night, Six-Day Archery-Muzzleloader Combo Packages; Four-Night, Three-Day Firearm Doe Hunts, and the list goes on!

 

Harpole’s also rolls out the red carpet every year and welcomes both seasoned veterans and those who are just learning how to deer hunt. With deer hunting tips and strategies from Heartland’s professional and talented guides, everyone is sure to have an incredible time.
