 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!

Learn Trail Camera Tips for Better Success

trail camera photoWith turkey season over and deer hunting season still months away I begin to dust off my trail cameras.  After clearing up my SD cards and loading up on fresh batteries I start to get anxious to put my cameras in the woods.  However, I prefer to approach trail camera season with a great amount of caution.
