Why choose the Woodlands?
Welcome to the Woodlands
The Woodlands are Pristine and Secluded.
Spoon River Woodlands is 933 acres of white oak, hickory and food plots supplying generous food and cover for whitetails, tucked away in rustic Fulton County- the perfect spot for bowhunting in Illinois. With four tracts to choose from--all with running water--there is little to no hunting pressure. Surrounded by thick-dense brush, a four-wheeler is needed just to get you within walking distance to your ideal hunting spot.
The field staff of Spoon River Woodlands, celebrating our 16th year of operations, invites you to a good ole' back-county bow hunt along the banks of the Spoon River. Nestled in the heart of Fulton County, our Deerfield Township tracts are less than two miles downstream from where the world record 305 pt non-typical buck was taken, and a mile upstream from where a 252 pt buck was taken.

The Turkey hunt was a success; we had great weather, found 15 mushrooms, and bagged a big old Tom Turkey. This turkey weighed 21lbs, 10 inch beard, and long spurs. We were truly blessed to have hunt on such a beautiful lot of land located at the end of Indian Trail. I thinks it’s called Docs Outpost? We seen one Tom in the Decoys, three Toms dancing all fanned out in the middle of the field, and two Toms together until Curtis racked one of them with number 5 shot. My 12 year old son was sitting 40 yards ahead of me as I called the bird with-in 10 yards of Curtis. The bird came in all fanned up, drumming, and to see my son shoot as the recoil knocks him on his back, I did not know if I wanted to laugh or cry in joy. Spoon River Woodlands thank you for helping us make memories with such a hunt.
