Heartland Lodge
Five-star facility located in the heart of hunting heaven.
If you are looking for a top-notch upland hunt, Harpole’s Heartland Lodge in Pike County, Illinois offers what many consider to be the best in North America. Enjoy hunting native Bobwhite quail, and pheasants over some of the best working German Shorthair Pointers and English Pointers in the country. An abundance of CRP fields mixed with Milo combine to produce ideal habitat for upland birds. Hard working guides will handle the dogs, carry the birds, and dress your kill at the end of each day. You will enjoy three hearty home-cooked meals each day. After the hunt, enjoy the fire in the massive stone fireplace in the Great Room, or shoot a game of pool. Specialty hunts can also be arranged. If you are looking for Chukars or Red Leg Partridge, Heartland has some of the hardest flying birds you can find. These sporty birds challenge even the most accomplished wing shooters. Heartland Lodge is a special place, not to be missed.
