 Just got back from a five day whitetail hunt. I cannot say enough about heartland lodge. The staff and guides were fantastic. Our guide Matt did everything in his power to make our hunt a success. My son bagged his biggest buck to date and I saw some huge bucks. Overall I had a blast. Book with Heartland and you will not regret it. The only bad thing is I now have to go on a diet because of all the unbelievable meals they make.

One of the most fantastic hunting experiences I've ever had. This trip was a gift from my son, John, for Father's Day which made this an exceptional time for me as a Dad. Thanks to everyone at Harpole's for 1st class service all day, every day!

Heartland Lodge is more than happy to let you walk some of the famous Pike County and Calhoun County ground looking for some of these monster sheds.
