If you're a serious whitetail hunter you know that Pike County Illinois is one of the best, if not the best place in North America to hunt trophy whitetails. We began offering guided whitetail hunts in 1997 and we are now one of the country's premier destinations for trophy whitetail hunts. We offer our hunters more than 30,000 acres of prime whitetail habitat in Pike County, Illinois, with four lodges and more than 4,000 stand locations. No matter the day, the weather, or the wind, our dedicated crew of full-time guides can put you on big, Pike County deer.
We are also a full time farming operation. That means that we have complete control over our hunting ground and our farms are run with hunting in mind. It also means that with a line of high-end commercial farming equipment, our food plots are out of this world! Our farms average 70% timber, providing ideal whitetail habitat.
Here at Hadley Creek, we enforce a 140 point/4-year-old minimum on all of our properties. Perhaps above anything else, this has driven the quality of our deer hunting over the past several years. By allowing those eight-point and ten-point 2 and 3-year-old bucks to walk, we have been able to produce incredible trophy quality. Additionally, our guides are paid a bonus every time a client kills a deer that meets that 140 minimum. Nobody else in the industry can make that claim.
Our goal every year is simple: to make Hadley Creek the country's best free-range trophy whitetail hunting outfit, period! That goal and commitment has driven every decision we make, from the number and quality of acres we hunt, to the amount of pressure we allow on our deer.
