The hunting area consists of two tracts for a total of more than 320 acres of prime Whitetail deer habitat. This land has had very little hunting pressure for the past several years and is managed to keep it that way. We are limiting the humber of hunters to 15 per year and we will only allow hunting 4 - 6 weeks of the season. We also rotate the tracts of land that are hunted each week to keep the hunting pressure low. Both tracts are 80% huntable land.
One property consists of 120 acres near Perry, Illinois in northern Pike County. This is where our cabin is located. This land consists of three 40's or a long 120 acres, 3/4 of a mile. Approximately 1/3 of the property has a spring fed creek running through it. The creek has never ran dry. Rolling hills with ravines are prevalent as the property runs along the creek. The property has a mix of trees and small open feed areas. Trees consist of native cottonwood, sycamore, oaks, black walnut, locust and osage orange. The small feed areas consist of Whitetail clover food plots. Bordering property has Corn, Soybeans, Alfalfa and grass pasture. This makes excellent Whitetail deer habitat.
The second property is 200 acres in southern Brown County. Just 1.25 miles into the county. This is 7 miles or 10 - 15 minutes away from the cabin. The 200 acres is native timber with approximately 20 acres of CRP ground since 1990. Large ravines and grassy open areas with red cedar trees make excellent holding areas. Trees consist of native black and white oak, black walnut, sycamore and cottonwood. Two springfed creeks run through this proven deer habitat.
The Regional Wildlife Biologist called this habitat a fawn factory with its many south facing grassy slopes. He also said this was some of the best deer habitat he has seen.
We utilize a QDM (Quality Deer Management) program including the planting of food plots with Imperial Whitetail Brand Clover.
