Lodge Hunts

All deer hunts (except “Do-It-My-Way” hunts) include accommodations in our comfortable lodge, meals, guide, and in-field transportation and game care. Hunters are responsible for their state hunting license and required permit. Bow permits will be available the first Saturday in June. The last few years, Illinois has had a large number of non-resident tags available! Buckeye Creek can assist with the purchase of deer tags. Hunters can contact the Illinois Department of Natural Resources or email Buckeye Creek with questions about the latest information or assistance with obtaining your tags.

“Do it My Way” Hunts

Buckeye Creek is happy to provide hunters with the “Do it My Way” Hunt. This provides hunters with the opportunity to hunt some of Pike County’s finest deer habitat and “rough it” by camping on the property.

Parties that want to stay in their own trailer or tent camp are welcome at Buckeye Creek. No meals are provided. Use of the land and a water hook up may be provided for self contained camper units.

Call or contact Buckeye Creek to customize your “Do it My Way” Hunt!
