Looking for a quality Illinois guided turkey Hunt?
Come to the Boneyard for giant gobblers and the Southern Illinois Slam of the Spring!
Southern Illinois is a perfect place to hunt your Eastern Wild Turkey. The Boneyard Outfitters leases thousands of acres for its deer hunting operations that are also excellent areas for hunting wild turkey.
Our hunting grounds are large hardwood forests with river bottoms, creeks and many feeding areas that make it a turkey hunting paradise. We offer semi-guided or fully guided spring turkey hunts, or you can take a shot at turkey in the fall while hunting whitetail deer.
If you kill out early we can take you for a day of great spring fishing, shed hunting, morel mushroom hunting, sporting clays, or a 27-hole golf course. Ask about our "Southern Illinois Grand Slam" available only at Boneyard Outfitters— wild turkey, crappie, morels and wild asparagus. If you bag all 4 of those, you just bagged the Grand Slam of the Spring.
Permit applications are being taken with the Illinois DNR now through February 9th, so book your reservation now at 618-927-3432.
