Our archery rut hunts are like no other anywhere in the country, as it is in Pike County, Illinois. Bucks are on the move, high deer density, low pressure hunting, and did we mention bucks are on the move. Rut weeks fill up fast, and for good reasons. 

For gun hunts here in Illinois, you can only use shot gun/slugs and muzzleloaders. This makes killing a buck of a lifetime up close and personal. Our gun season is a three and four day season. Second rut usually occurs during this time, which makes it a great time to be in a stand.

Youth gun hunts are opened to non-resident youth hunters under the age of 17. It is a three day Saturday - Monday early October hunt. The weather is great and it is a perfect time to get your young hunter on a buck of a lifetime or their first buck. The price is right for this hunt and spots fill up fast.

Late season archery hunts can be that last chance to kill a buck of a lifetime for the year. The cold weather forces the big bucks to feed and makes the strategy a little easier. Food plots put in by our staff here at B&D Outfitters are the favorable spots on killing a trophy whitetail at this time of year.
