The foundation of FDH was built on quality hunting experiences, honesty and integrity. The numerous harvests and the lifelong friendships made continue to drive our will to succeed. This combined with our low pressure and low impact strategy, has allowed us to reach an unmatched level of quality for each and every FDH client. FDH is owned and operated by experienced guides and hunters who understand and are willing to do what it takes to see you be successful. With a combined 30+ years of guiding experience and countless client success stories, we not only limit the number of hunters but we also limit the number of weeks that we operate.
FDH operates in select areas of West Central Illinois, primarily in Adams County, where we focus our efforts to ensure you a quality based Illinois hunting experience on strictly managed whitetail properties. Full Draw Lodge, located east of Mendon, is centrally located to all of our strictly managed and 100% Archery Only properties.
Come hunting season, our farms go untouched until the last week of October as the pre rut and rut begins, which only lasts a total of 5 weeks. When you combine this with the fact that we are fortunate to have a client base of hard core & scent conscious hunters, it is easy to see why we are able to have the success that we have. FDH is operated on 100% fair chase privately owned farms where there are absolutely NO TROPHY FEES. We do enforce a 4.5 year old minimum on all FDH farms. This policy aids us in providing one of the best opportunities available at trophy and more importantly, mature whitetails.
