Hunt trophy whitetails and turkey in Western Kentucky on a block of approximately 6,000 continuous acres. This area, located near Sturgis, Ky., consistently produces excellent whitetails and turkey. Located in the river bottom area directly across the Ohio River from Southen Illinois, the hunting block features dense river bottom, hardwood ridges, food plots, and row crops. Deer season starts in September and runs through mid-January. Hunting is strictly fair chase and is usually done from elevated lock-on and ladder stands, or, occasional, ground blinds.

We have 700+ acres of prime hunting ground in Putnam County near the Iowa border in North Central Missouri. This area is known for its rolling hills, timerbered areas, and agriculture. Tags are available over the counter or online for both deer and turkey. I have hunted in Putnam County for over 40 years and have been a Boone and Crockett and Pope and Young measurer for nearly 20 years, measuring deer in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, and Missouri. Hunting properties are separate which gives you a chance to hunt different deer and turkeys. I take a limited number of hunters each month so the animals are not pressured.
