HUNT GIANT WHITETAILS IN FAMOUS CALHOUN COUNTY, ILLINOIS.
Non-Typical Outfitters is located in the middle of world famous West Central Illinois. Nestled in the bluff country of Calhoun County, we provide the perfect mixture of hardwood timber, deep draws, ridge top fields & large agricultural fields. Calhoun County provides everything it takes to consistently grow monster whitetails & the staff at Non-Typical Outfitters works tirelessly to keep those giant whitetails on the properties we manage, giving you every opportunity possible to not only see the whitetail of your dreams, but put it within your range.
We plant several acres of food plots catering to the needs of the abundant whitetail population each of our properties holds. We have everything from white ladino clover to Austrian winter peas to purple top turnips so our whitetail herd has plenty of tasty & hearty feed throughout the entire hunting season.
Non-Typical Outfitters prides itself on being able to accommodate hunters from every walk of life, from beginners to professional hunters, from young to old. We offer a wide variety of ladder stands & tree stands to accommodate everyone’s personal preference & several fully enclosed blinds on the properties for the ever changing weather conditions, all of which are strategically placed in preparation for all wind directions.
Here at Non-Typical Outfitters, we are more than just a seasonal operation that runs & guns. We spend several days scouting each & every property throughout the entire year. We run a handful of Reconyx game cameras year round to keep an eye on the ever changing patterns of the wise old whitetail bucks that roam the farms.
Being a tight knit family operation, we’ve grown up here, we live here, and whitetail deer are all we know. No one can provide you with more knowledge & hard work than Non-Typical Outfitters. You enter as a guest & leave as family.
Our goal is to have 100% satisfaction for each deer hunter. Your success is our success!
I have been on other hunts around the country and Non-Typical Outfitters was one of my favorites. Ryan and his crew were great hosts, the accommodations were excellent, and more importantly the deer hunting was first class. My son and I hunted for a week and never hunted in the same stand. The last day of the hunt I connected with a stud. If you are looking for a guide that gives personal attention to each and every hunt, then Non-Typical Outfitters is the place to go for your next hunt.
Our ground is anything but Typical
We offer archery and firearm hunts on quality-managed acres on some of the best whitetail ground that Illinois has to offer. All of our properties are carefully managed with blend of 70% timber growth and 30% agricultural with specialized strategic food plots in place to provide our deer herds everything they need to thrive and grow to their full potential.
One reason we are one off the top trophy whitetail outfitters in Illinois is because of our low hunting pressure. Each year, only a limited number of hunters are taken from week to week. Once you arrive for your hunt you can be certain that you will have a location available to hunt that no other hunters occupied the previous day.
Wildlife biologists & land managers alike will tell you there’s no real secret to growing trophy whitetails. It takes good genetics, the right food sources, habitat, and the proper management of the deer herd’s age and sex structure. While west central Illinois is blessed with the “Best of the Best” of these ingredients, growing big mature bucks is just part of the equation. Having these big bucks and producing them for hunters are two completely different things! With our average shot opportunity rate hovering right around the 70%, our reputation speaks for itself!
I used Non-Typical Outfitters for both my personal Illinois Whitetail hunt and to send some of our important business clients in 2015. Ryan and his team did an outstanding job of entertaining and working hard to get us on quality deer. The facilities were comfortable and accommodating. Ryan, the owner has invested heavily in quality ground and facilities. Ryan and his guides are friendly, professional, safety conscientious and well versed in Illinois hunting and fishing regulations. I would use Non-Typical Outfitters again for my person or professional hunting needs.
This is what it's all about right here.
