Whitetail Trophy Tracts
Whitetail Trophy Tracts is now planning to promote the Illinois deer hunting ideas and experiences developed by the original group.
Whitetail Trophy Tracts is not a traditional whitetail deer hunting outfitter. The private, managed land will be open to small groups of hunters for 5-day archery hunts for trophy bucks. Other hunts are available each year, if the 5-day archery hunts don't meet your needs.
If you are a dedicated hunter of trophy bucks, interested in Illinois bow hunting, and interested in learning more about deer management practices, contact Whitetail Trophy Tracts, premier whitetail deer hunting outfitter. Reserve a spot on the roster for one of this year's bow hunts.
In 1996, five bow hunters, enthusiastic about Illinois deer hunting, formed a partnership. This Southern Illinois deer hunting partnership was based on a philosophy of quality deer management and the nurturing of trophy bucks . Since that time, individually and together, they have managed over 1,400 acres for proper land use, nutritional food plot introduction, and strict harvest size requirements. Penalties were self-imposed for any whitetail buck harvested with less than a 17-inch spread on the inside measurement.
Since 1998, not one acre of land has been used as commercial farmland. All food plots are planted and left annually to insure sufficient food availability for all wildlife, with a special focus on the deer population.
Unlike other outfitters that lease farmland wherever they can find it, this land has not been opened to any outside hunting for over 19 years. Only property owners hunted and managed the land, and, honestly, never imagined becoming whitetail deer hunting outfitters.
