Book a Hunt



To book your Illinois deer hunt with Swain Farms Outfitting, first contact Brandon Swain by email at or by phone at (217)248-3977. Along with their payment, hunters are also required by law to sign a hunt contract to secure the requested hunting dates. Be sure to look at our checklist for a list of important items to remember before leaving for your hunt.



All hunters are required to purchase their permit, FULL season hunting license and a habitat stamp that are available through the IDNR’s website. Permit and license fees are the hunters responsibility and are not included in the cost of our deer hunts. Illinois has a lottery system for acquiring permits. The lottery for nonresident archery permits takes place in June each year. Gun hunters can apply for their permits in July. Visit the Illinois Department of natural Resources website for more info.



We accept all major credit/debit cards as well as checks and money orders made payable to Swain Farms Outfitting, 2519 Swain Road, Jacksonville, Illinois 62650. A third of the total hunt price is required to secure the requested dates. The remaining balance is divided into 2 payments, due May 1 and September 1. Hunts are not considered booked until we have received your deposit. Refunds will only be given if we cannot accommodate your hunt. Schedule hunts also cannot be rolled over to the following year.



*Pricing for our hunts can be found on our rates page.
