The Pike County area offers some of the best turkey hunting in Illinois. Pike county is located between the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers and provides an excellent habitat for the Eastern subspecies of the wild turkey. With hardwood timber, abundant crop fields, and plenty of hill country, the area holds a large number of Eastern gobblers.
The Illinois Turkey season consists of five separate seasons beginning around mid-April and ending each year around mid-May.
Bighorn Turkey hunts consist of 3 day hunts – both guided and unguided and lodging is included with our Turkey hunts.
Bighorn guides are all seasoned turkey hunters that are familiar with our flock and the areas in which you will be hunting. Our guides are dedicated to assisting in your success at taking an Illinois Eastern gobbler. If you choose to pursue the unguided hunt, you will be placed in an area that holds a good number of birds and can enjoy roosting, calling and harvesting a gobbler using your own skills.
