One of Illinois’ best kept secrets, The Strut & Rut Hunting Lodge offers trophy white-tail deer and turkey hunting in Western Illinois. Low hunting pressure in Morgan and Cass Counties will provide hunters with an excellent hunting experience. Strut Rut is located across the river from Pike County. Just over 2 hours north of St. Louis, Missouri and mid-way between Springfield & Quincy, Illinois, we are easily accessible, yet wonderfully secluded on approximately 4,000 private acres.
The Strut & Rut manages prime white-tail deer and turkey habitat for trophy hunting on our privately owned hunting ground. We only harvest does and trophy bucks on our properties. A majority of the land is reserved for archery hunting only, thus allowing excellent opportunity for late season hunters. All of the Strut & Rut ground is pre-scouted. We have several stands in place, however, hunters are also welcome to bring their own. It should also be noted that there are no poisonous snakes on our properties.
Whether you come to watch a turkey strut… or visit us during the rut… you will enjoy a quality hunting experience at The Strut & Rut Hunting Lodge!
