Whitetail Deer Hunting in Southern Illinois with
Oak Grove Outfitters


Welcome to Oak Grove Outfitters. We offer excellent whitetail deer hunting for 4 to 6 people on well over 1000 acres in Gallatin and Saline counties in Southern Illinois. As you may already know, Southern Illinois is the home to many of the biggest trophy whitetail bucks ever taken.

Southern Illinois is known throughout the world as a hunting destination not only for trophy bucks but also as a state that allows all hunters a good chance at killing a whitetail.

According to the Department of Natural Resources, there are about 750,000 whitetail deer currently in Illinois, so the hunting season should once again be a success. Our bowhunting harvest is at record levels, firearms totals are outstanding and stable, and hunter success is high. Trophy deer are consistently taken in Illinois.

Hunting Information

We offer semi-guided 5 day whitetail deer hunts. All deer hunts include lodging in a farm house with modern kitchen and deep freeze. Bring your own food or eat at one of the several restaurants in the area.

Several different hunting locations are available, and they are all prime whitetail habitat. There is a high concentration of whitetail does here that bring in big bucks from all over. Our property has acres of filterstrips and CRP along with corn, soybeans and wheat, and foodplots we have planted.

We have many permanent deer stands built, but you can bring your own climber or ground blind to maximize your hunting opportunities. You are also encouraged to bring your ATV if possible. You are welcome to come check us out before you book a hunt. We look forward to meeting you.
