We make your dreams of hunting Illinois whitetail deer possible. Our hunt club is located in Southeastern Illinois along the Ohio River Basin. Our quality whitetail deer managed farms are in Gallatin and Saline Counties. North American Whitetail Magazine named this region where the Wabash and Ohio Rivers meet, "perhaps the best place on the continent to take a trophy buck." Buckmasters Magazine calls it "Illinois' big secret."

A large percentage of this region is made up of corn and soybean fields. This abundance of high-quality forage grows bucks to enormous proportions. We plant year-round food plots to attract deer and provide continuous nutrition between agricultural crops.

Our hunting grounds are located in a transition zone. Miles of crop fields yield to rolling hills mixed with hardwoods and river bottoms. The Illinois whitetail are big and abundant. This is the perfect place for your whitetail trophy hunting.
A 3 1/2-year-old buck typically weighs 250 pounds or more and scores somewhere around the 140 class. Bownanza Hunt Club wants to harvest only mature deer.
