Turkey Hunting in Illinois

Spring is a special time in Illinois. The woods come back to life, and mother nature’s herald of spring is the Eastern turkey. Hollow Ground Guide Service provides some of the best terrain in Pike and Calhoun counties to chase these elusive birds. We have seen a rise in the population over the last few seasons, which has allowed us the privilege to offer hunts. Illinois has five different seasons, which are county specific. We offer a three-day hunt during each season. Turkey hunting takes some planning with guides and lodging, so you MUST book in advance to secure your permit and hunt. Please give us a call to discuss details and booking time frames.



All major credit cards are accepted. Call anytime 7 days a week to reserve your hunt

By far the best outfitter hands down. If you want a true deer camp experience this is it. I cannot say enough about their dedication to the client and the hunt. These guys are just awesome. You’ll never go hungry in camp with the absolute best home-cooked meals in western Illinois. Sure there’s a bunch of outfitters you can choose from but if you want a truly memorable hunt experience look no further. This IS it!!! From the minute you arrive, until the minute you leave, you are treated as family. It’s not only about the animals but more about the people. I promise you, you won’t be disappointed!!

Wouldn’t even consider hunting anywhere else in southern Illinois. These guys know what they are doing and most importantly are passionate about it. If I could give them 6 stars I would.

Antonacci Outdoors has hunted with Harrison Lane @ Hollow Ground for 7 seasons. Knows his land, his deer patterns, and his positioning of stands for various wind conditions. Highly recommend!!!
