ABOUT US: 

Over the years We have come to love and respect the art of whitetail management. We enjoy the serenity and beauty of Pike County, Illinois, especially during the whitetail season. The fall colors on a frosty morning can be breath taking as the sounds of the rutting bucks echo through the still morning air.

     We have each experienced the tremendous thrill in the taking of  trophy whitetails.  Several of Our trophies have received 1st. place honors in the 2nd. annual Pike County Illinois deer camp.  The Pike County Deer Camp was established to display and score trophy animals.  The deer camp goes further than the judging, it is a place where sportsmen and women share their hunting adventures, and is also a place to get a few pointers as the hunting season approaches.  It also serves as a median to bring in not only the hunter, but the none hunter alike as a way to promote the art of whitetail hunting.

 

BOW HUNTING: 

Thank You for Your interest in bow hunting the big whitetails in Pike County, Illinois.  The Land of Legends Outfitters  spans more than 1100 acres of some of the best whitetail hunting in the country.  We have 346 acres of CRP, 151 acres in corn, soybeans and wheat.  The remaining acres are woodlands with several creeks, springs, and ponds.  There are also many food plots throughout the farm.

     Ten years ago, along with our neighbors, we started a management program to give our young bucks a chance to mature.  Our efforts paid off.  Now with each passing year the number of big mature bucks has steadily increased.

     Our hunts are guided or semi guided.  We will help You any way We can.  We will scout the farms for scrape lines or areas where the deer are using and try to place You in a hot spot.  We will have stands hung or You may bring Your own stand or You may hunt in ground blind.  I do not allow driving deer.  Only stand hunting will be allowed.  Bucks taken must be mature animals of 140 or better. You will need to bring all the necessary gear, including rubber boots.  These are fair chase wild game hunts that require crafty archers with ethical and sportsman like behavior.  All State and Federal hunting regulations apply.
