Illinois Trophy Buck Outfitters is forming a new Illinois deer hunting club for the 2009/2010 Illinois deer hunting season and beyond that will consist of 20 club members total per year. The club is offering partial and full memberships. The club will have many benefits which will include lodging, over 1000 acres of continuous ground located in Jersey County along the Illinois River. The property is very diverse and has some agriculture, deep hollows, mature timber, bluffs, standing crops and food plots; a full time guide will be available to help all club members with stand placement and recovery and field dressing of your deer.
ILTBO Hunt club will only allow 5 members per week in camp to hunt. This will keep low pressure on all the properties. We are currently in negotiations with the landowner for a long term lease commitment of 10 years and working on the bylaws, club rules and membership fees at this time. The club membership will be priced accordingly and within most hunters’ budget. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out the website for upcoming membership information and pricing. http://www.iltbo.com
Partial Memberships: A partial membership will consist of 3 weeks of archery hunts, an October hunt, a November hunt and late season December or January hunt along with a week of spring turkey hunting and shed horn/moral mushroom hunting.
Full Memberships: A full membership will consist of a combination of 3 weeks of archery, an October hunt, a November hunt and a late season hunt in December or January along with one of the 3 firearm seasons and a week of spring turkey hunting and shed horn/moral mushroom hunting.
The benefit of a partial yearly membership includes 3 weeks of guaranteed archery hunts along with fringe benefits. The benefits of a full yearly membership includes 3 weeks guaranteed archery hunts one of the 3 firearm/blackpowder seasons along with many fringe benefits.
Our membership costs will be around the price of a hunt with the big Illinois deer hunting outfitters. One week of hunting with them or a year around membership with ILTBO hunt club. Any week of archery that is open and has no hunters or there are still spots available a paid member will be allowed to fill that opening which is included in their membership.
