Illinois Connection offers some of the best bow hunting in the state of Illinois;arguably, some of the best hunting in the world. Having been predominately archery for many years, we now offer a limited number of firearm hunts. Illinois Connection operates on over 16,000 privately owned acres located in West Central Illinois (Pike, Brown, Schuyler and Adams Counties). Geographically, we are situated between the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers. This fertile area, also referenced to as the Golden Triangle, Heartland or Corn Belt region, is ideal for harvesting trophy monster bucks.
