Hunter Comments
I recommend this outfitter

I think with any outfitter it is important to receive 3 things from them. I like to refer to them as HHH. The first one I feel is important to have is a quality deer HERD. Jeff does an outstanding job managing his Herd. Through the care of food plots, photo management, and managing to an age structure that can truly provide his clients the trophy you are looking for. Second, you have to have the HABITAT to hold and grow mature deer. I hunted several different farms during my time at Full Draw and each and every farm is maintained to hold and grow mature whitetails. Every farm provided food plots, crops, grasses, woods, and dense cover. In my mind, this is everything you would need to grow giant whitetails. Lastly, you need someone you can trust and is HONEST! I researched many different options and some people will tell you what you want to hear. Jeff will give you an honest answer to any question and will not oversell his ability.

Being an Illinois resident, I have hunted all over the state for over 20 years and have seen some outstanding habitat and hunting scenarios. I have very rarely seen it laid out as well as Jeff has it and even more rare that it is run by someone with the honesty, integrity, and desire to make someone's dream come true. If you are thinking of booking an Illinois Whitetail hunt, look no further. I highly suggest booking with Jeff and Full Draw.
