Why Goose Hunt in Illinois?

Illinois has the best Canada goose hunting in the Mississippi Flyway. The area surrounding Mazonia Hunt Club is the undisputed goose hunting mecca for the Illinois Central Zone. When the weather drives the geese south, Mazonia Hunt Club becomes the chosen feeding grounds and hunters score bag limits consistently. For all information on season dates and bag limits visit Illinois Season Dates and Bag Limits.

Since weather is the greatest factor in migration we typically advise our clients that the major migrations normally occur in colder weather. Traditionally the last two weeks of December and first two weeks of January have been the prime dates, and thus you must book early. There is always a tremendous opportunity to goose hunt in the Illinois Central Zone and enjoy a hunt of a lifetime! This year we will have a 3 goose per day limit.

Our club features heated buried and above ground blinds which can comfortably accommodate up to six goose hunters and their gear. We also go mobile and hunt the hot fields out of spacious layout blinds or TangleFree Panel Blinds. Hunt over some of the finest goose and duck decoys available. Your hunt will be with a professional goose guide that will make every effort to assure your success in the field.

The MAZONIA HUNT CLUB is located within an hours drive of Chicago or Bloomington, IL. The clubhouse is directly east of the I-55 Gardner exit 227 and next to the Gardner Restaurant at 423 West Main Street in Gardner. Click Here For Google Maps Link To Mazonia Hunt Club
