At Big Deer Hunt, it is our goal that you have the trophy whitetail deer hunt of a lifetime.
When you hunt one of our own private properties you will know that Calhoun County, Illinois is some of the finest whitetail deer hunting in North America.
We are land owners that lease out our personal property for the whitetail deer hunt of a lifetime. Here is how most of our hunters describe their hunts…
“Some of the best whitetail hunting we have ever seen! Great hunting and excellent accommodations!”
We know that your goal is to harvest a trophy deer of a lifetime, so we work hard to be sure that you have the hunting experience you dream of. This is why we emphasize a wildlife management strategy. We try to limit the number of deer harvested each year, and always limit the number of hunts we sell every year so you have an optimal hunting experience.
