The Best of Illinois Hunting
Illinois Connection offers some of the best bow hunting in the state of Illinois;arguably, some of the best hunting in the world. Having been predominately archery for many years, we now offer a limited number of firearm hunts. Illinois Connection operates on over 16,000 privately owned acres located in West Central Illinois (Pike, Brown, Schuyler and Adams Counties). Geographically, we are situated between the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers. This fertile area, also referenced to as the Golden Triangle, Heartland or Corn Belt region, is ideal for harvesting trophy monster bucks.
Let’s face it: most outfitters offer decent accommodations but don’t offer class A accommodations. Most outfitters offer decent meals but don’t offer meals fit for a king. Most outfitters are friendly, but their establishment isn’t a place you would bring your wife and kids. Illinois Connection, on the other hand, is different. We offer Class A accommodations, meals you would only expect at a fine restaurant, and Southern hospitality.
Our main lodge is 12,500 square feet and can house groups of all sizes. We also offer accommodations for husbands who want to bring their wives hunting. At Illinois Connection, you won’t be roughing it in a wall tent or plywood shack; you will be sleeping in a comfortable bed, eating in a dining room and relaxing in one of multiple spacious living rooms. Our lodge is a resort built for hunters who want to go on a hunting vacation, not just a hunt. From the fountain drink dispenser to the full bar and pool table, Illinois Connection has it all. Log accents, leather furniture, a field stone fireplace, custom hardwood floors and clean rooms make Illinois Connection a warm and inviting place everyone enjoys coming back to after a long day of hunting. We even offer a scent-free room equipped with carbon dryers to keep hunting garments odor free.
