Nestled between the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers, wild quail hunting and the legacy of quality upland game bird dogs are a tradition at Harpole's Heartland Lodge. Enjoy hunting native bobwhite quail, along with pheasant, on an upland game hunt. Hunt behind some of the best German shorthair pointers and English pointers in the country!

An abundance of CRP fields mixed with fields of milo is ideal for upland birds. Five-star accommodations await your return from the field. Indulge with a luxury suite completely furnished with a ultra comfy triple sheeted, king sized canopy bed, fireplace, jaccuzzi (great after a long day in the field), comfy furniture, day bed, mini refrigerator for all your favorite beverages, gun racks and more.
