Default ** UPDATE WITH VIDEO ** Illinois Hunt 2012/13

UPDATE: I am going to change this offer to either the Illinois second gun season (4 day) 11/29, 11/30, 12/1 & 12/2 OR the Illinois late Muzzleloader season 12/9, 12/10 & 12/11. I wont be filling both hunts, JUST one of these. I have had a few inquiries on the hunt but it is still available. I cannot tell you how great this area is for whitetails and my farm sits smack in the middle of it!

Lodging is NOT included. Lodging consists of the normal hotel chains(most are brand new) in Macomb, Illinois. I have electric at the farm, skinning shed and dryer in the shed should you need it.

140" / 4 year old minimum and hunting pressure is VERY LOW on this farm. I only go out once or twice per year. Trophy track record on kills on my farm is excellent and 3 of those kills can be seen on Bucks of Tecomate past episodes, one of which was right at 180 inches.

Here is a short video I shot last year shortly after I killed this buck. http://youtu.be/BuAR-pgIq54

If you are seriously interested in knowing more about this opportunity, please email me at foodplotdude@gmail.com. I think you will be surprised at how affordable this hunt is, especially when compared to outfitters pricing, respectfully.

I hunted a couple of properties there last year foodplotdude, in between Tennessee and Plymouth. Very nice properties. I passed on quite a few and could not get shots at a couple good ones. My buddy shot a 152" 14pt. I'm hunting down in Schuyler Co. this year or I would take you up on it.

Here is a video I shot on this farm after I killed this buck. My hunting partner had already killed a near 160 buck the morning before on the other side of the farm.

My farm is located NE of Rushville, east of #67 back in the middle of that huge track of timber running east/west. The southern border of my property IS the Schuyler/McDonough County line

I was within a few miles of your farm last year on a couple different farms. One was right off Co HWY 24. West of you though I guess.

Muzzy, I'm not positive where the farm is we are hunting this year, but I think it's west of you on the Adams Co border.

Just in the 2nd gun(4 day hunt) last year I passed on 4 115-120" bucks and couldn't get a shot at a 140ish, and saw a true monster for just enough time to get my gun up to my shoulder.

Anyone really looking for some good hunting, you really need to talk to FPD on this offer!

Thanks Maya. I still cant believe this hunt is still available! Last year I had 11 different 145-160 bucks using my bean field all summer long. I killed one of them during the gun season. Opening morning of first gun last year I passed 8 bucks, 2 of which were 130-135.

Whoever gets this hunt will be privy to some awesome trail camera pictures I have amassed over the years and the pictures coming this summer. It is an incredible deer area......

Hard to believe it is still available. Already have some amazingly big bucks on trail camera from this farm that are well advanced in racks. One 7 x 6 that will easily hit 175 this growing season....... Just about last chance, I believe, since tags are getting pulled soon

Default got a few buddies who love to hunt-lets talk

FPD- Sounds like you are a celeb on this site!! I am discussing a hunt for 4 buddies and I or maybe a few of us. Not sure yet. Is this a DIY? can you describe what you have? Cost? We are all good responsible hunters. Show us the land, maybe a map, we will be good! I am in Brazil today (7/11/12) and get back Saturday

My cell is 612-619-7062 and my email is nhauger@medafor.com

I am in Brazil on work and it is best to email me, i have no phone service. Looking forward to hearing details.

Neil
