Welcome to Buckeye Creek Outfitters!
Looking for a chance at a trophy Midwest buck? Buckeye Creek Outfitters has operated a family-owned-and -operated hunting outfit in Pike County, IL, since 1998. We are a superior organization dedicated to a quality hunting experience for everyone. Pike County is well-known for producing outstanding whitetail deer and places numerous Pope and Young trophies in the book every year. In fact, Pike County is the #1 deer county in the state of Illinois.
With our experienced guides, proven stand sites and quality whitetail deer management practices, you will have an outstanding opportunity to harvest a mature whitetail buck. Each hunter will have 100 acres to themselves to hunt. You will see deer!
This is fair chase bow hunting at its best! There is no guaranteed harvest.
Children 16 and under are half-price on all hunts. All children must meet Illinois hunting requirements.
All deer hunts (except “Do-It-My-Way” hunts) include accommodations in our comfortable lodge, meals, guide, and in-field transportation and game care. Hunters are responsible for their state hunting license and required permit. Bow permits will be available the first Saturday in June. The last 2 years, Illinois has had a large number of non-resident tags available! Buckeye Creek can assist with the purchase of deer tags.
We also have excellent flocks of wild Eastern Turkey. These birds are well fed from local farm fields and are allowed to grow to maturity. Fall turkey hunting is available for our bow hunters, and runs concurrently with the deer season. We recommend that our hunters pick up one of these permits, which are available over the counter, so if “Boss Gobbler” happens by, you can take that shot. Spring turkey hunts are available with callers or you can call for yourself.
Spring turkey gun hunting is by permit only, with lottery dates specified by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. There are five different Spring seasons to choose from, usually beginning the second week of April and running through the second week of May.
"Do it My Way" Hunts
Buckeye Creek is happy to provide hunters with the “Do it My Way” Hunt. This provides hunters with the opportunity to hunt some of Pike County’s finest deer habitat and “rough it” by camping on the property.
Parties that want to stay in their own trailer or tent camp are welcome at Buckeye Creek. No meals are provided. Use of the land and a water hook up may be provided for self contained camper units.
Call or contact Buckeye Creek to customize your “Do it My Way” Hunt!
