For the last 7 years my father and I have been hunting with Hadley Creek. We have been successful and unsuccessful throughout the years, but that’s how free range whitetail hunting is. The atmosphere Hadley Creek has to offer is second to none and the accommodations are top of the line which allows you to feel at home and comfortable around all the guests.

Thank you for an experience that exceeded expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to Hadley Creek. I made the trip on my own and quickly felt like I was part of the group. The hospitality provided by the Hadley Creek Staff made you feel at home. I quickly made friends with the other hunters that were almost all returning customers. The atmosphere quickly felt like the “hunting camp” that we all share many memories of.

From the time I was a little kid growing up watching Dream Season and seeing Hadley Creek on there. I knew I wanted to go there! I researched them on the internet and found both positive and negative reviews. But as soon as I rolled into camp I knew this was going to be a great hunt! By the warm welcoming we had by all the guides to the stands I was sitting in. Everything blew me away! I saw a lot of deer everyday. I ended up killing my biggest deer to date with the Hadley crew- thanks to their guide Sonny. All the guides I hunted with were just great to be around. I met a lot of new people and made a lot of new friends. I will be back every year that God blesses me with a chance to go.

Having hunted on my own for over 20 years, I wasn't sure what to expect about a fully guided hunt. I was so happy to find out how much flexibility you have at Hadley Creek, and how motivated the guides are to put you on a great buck. You are able to let your guide now if you prefer to hunt in the timber, on food plots, in creek bottoms, or whatever style you really enjoy. If you find a guide or stand that you really like, you are usually able to go right back to that spot again to give it another try. It is not a 'canned hunt'. There are no guarantees that you will harvest a buck. However, you can be certain that you will be hunting some of the best whitetail properties in North America, with a guide that knows his farm inside and out, and each time out, you have a legitimate chance at that buck of a lifetime. Hunting at Hadley Creek is something that I now look forward to doing for many years to come.

Thanks to Harrison & Jared for giving me another most memorable experience!! I highly recommend Hadley Creek! That's why I'm coming back for a 5th time!

If you are looking for an outstanding free-range whitetail hunting outfitter, Hadley Creek is the place for you. I have been bow hunting at Hadley Creek for the past 5 years and have enjoyed every year that I have been there. The property that they hunt is excellent and well managed with food plots and good free stand placement. The quality of the deer on their property is outstanding. The largest deer I have taken with a bow is at Hadley Creek, and year after year I have seen more mature bucks on their property.

My first visit to Hadley Creek was in the fall of 2009. I was impressed with the amount of bucks I would see along with the abundance of does. The guides do a fantastic job on trying to make my hunt a success. As a hunter, I've always had at least one opportunity at a mature buck during my stay. Even though I've not always fulfilled my tag, the opportunity is more than I could ever ask for. I have had such great experience hunting with Hadley Creek Outfitters that I've returned every year since.

Every avid hunter should get a chance to visit Hadley Creek. There is a different feeling when you climb a tree knowing you could see the buck of a lifetime at any moment. You are truly in the land of the giants. The guides work unbelievably hard to make your hunt a success. The commitment the guides show to providing you with a quality hunt can’t be adequately put into words. Amazing work ethic!!! I have had the privilege of sharing a Hadley Creek camp with my father. I look forward to sharing Hadley Creek with my children in the future!! I can’t wait to go back!!

I started hunting with Hadley in 2007 and I’ve not missed a season since. I just fell in love with the place. When I arrive in camp I feel like I’m at home, all the guides and staff make you feel like family. They will all do whatever it takes to make it the hunt of a lifetime. The experiences and memories are some of the best ones in my hunting career. I’ve hunted early season, the rut, and the 2nd gun season, the amount of deer you’ll see is unbelievable!!
Donnie Moody- NC
I have been able to hunt with other outfitters over the years and none of them even came close to what Hadley and the CREW has to Offer!!!! At any time I know while I am in Pike County I know that the biggest buck in the world could walk under my tree! The Hadley Crew is incredibly educated on Midwest whitetails, they take unbelievable pride in their farms, and they do whatever it takes to better your chances to score on a trophy buck.

Our family has been hunting with the Hadley Creek Team for 8 years. We travel all over to hunt, but it became very clear that we had to set aside time EVERY YEAR in October and November to chase these huge Illinois whitetails. Having had experience with outfitters and hunting companies all over the world, we can say without a doubt that the Hadley Creek Operation is among the best of the best. The farms, the stands, the lodges, and the staff are top notch, and have continued to improve each and every year. Our daughter and two boys have been hunting at Hadley since they were 10 years old, and as they have grown they have always made time for our family trips to Illinois.

2014 will be my 8th convective year hunting with Hadley Creek Outfitters and every year has been better than the previous. If you’re looking for an outfitter that has great farms, managed food plots and the best guides in the industry and the reason we all hunt ‘The largest managed whitetail herd in the Midwest' you can find it all at Hadley Creek Outfitters.

Anytime you have an efficient top notch operation that is run as smoothly as Hadley Creek you have to tip your hat to the folks making the decisions. From the top down HC has a quality, caring, hardworking staff of people who basically have one goal in mind. And that’s to do everything they possibly can to help you have a great time and a successful hunt. HC’s game management program, their farming operation, their strategic location of food plots and deer stands, plus all the detailed preparation and work that goes on behind the scenes throughout the year is mind boggling. All done with the hunter’s success in mind. It’s my opinion that Hadley Creek Outfitters is the best whitetail hunting outfitter in the country. Period!

After the first hunt at Hadley, my sons and I realized what a quality deer hunt was all about. We always saw and were blessed to have shot many deer over the years but always wondered how a guided hunt would be. The Hadley Creek guides that take their job seriously enough to do the research all year long in order to get you in front of the deer you always dreamed about shooting! The camp folks that cook meals they serve in a five star restaurant. We will always remember those early mornings as we travel down those winding back roads through the cut corn fields and as we turn the corner, the lights pan over the field and we see 20 or 30 deer grazing. When we leave Hadley each year we start counting down the days till were are back!

When you scrimp and save for a hunting trip to the Midwest, you want to experience a once-in-a-lifetime hunt. There are no guarantees in free-range whitetail hunting, especially when you're after mature bucks. In fact, the odds are stacked against you. Every time I hunt at Hadley Creek, and I've done so four times now, I feel like I have a great shot at taking a trophy buck. The guides at Hadley Creek know their land, they know their deer, and they know how to put hunters in the best possible location to fill their tags. The food plots are outstanding, and there are ample treestand options to choose from. In short, Hadley Creek evens the odds and gives their hunters a real opportunity for close encounters with trophy whitetails. I've hunted with Hadley early in the archery season, just as the rut kicked in and even during a shotgun hunt in December. Time of year and weapon don't matter. If it's Hadley Creek, count me in!
