About this trip

Eagle Lakes Outfitters Whitetail Deer Hunts - Firearm

Eagle Lakes Outfitters offers some of the finest firearm hunting for whitetail deer in the country. Illinois is unique in that only shotguns with slugs and muzzleloaders are allowed to harvest these trophy deer. This provides the opportunity for a close encounter with the trophy of a lifetime. All hunting is done from either ground blinds or stands and drives are strictly prohibited on our ground. All stands are setup with the archer in mind. This affords the firearm hunter with excellent shot opportunities. All hunts begin with the hunter arriving on the day before the hunt, after 12:00 Noon.

NOTE: The first 3 day gun season is usually set for the weekend before Thanksgiving and the 4 day hunt is set for the second weekend after Thanksgiving day with the muzzleloader only hunt being the weekend immediately following the second shotgun season.
