We are able to accommodate all kinds of hunters. We have lock-on stands, ladder stands, and handicap accessible ground blinds and box blinds. Our lock on stands are provided by Muddy Outdoors, as there are no better stands out there. Our ladder stands are provided by Big Game Treestands because no other stand offers the comfort and space that Big Game Treestands do. Although all our stand locations are chosen for a reason, we have no problem with you bringing your climber. All of our treestands will have bow ropes and bow hooks in place for you, allowing you to get into your stand quick and quietly.
We have lots of different set-ups in place to intersect those big bluegrass bucks. We have corn, and soybean fields established, as well as assorted clovers, alfalfa, winter wheat and oats planted throughout the farm. We have several small ponds and a couple of large creeks on the property that we will utilize during the early season and during the rut. We have ground blinds tucked away under our cedar trees looking out over secluded food plots or agricultural fields. Any set-ups we have back in the timber are usually located near acorn producing oak trees. We have a couple tower blinds that are used more for preseason scouting than hunting, set up overlooking some of our agricultural fields.
We are confident that by implementing a supplemental feeding plan, feeding corn throughout the winter, planting food plots, harvesting does and keeping the coyote population in check we can have our Doe to Buck Ratio down to 3 :1 or better.
We have established 30+ Mineral Licks, implemented a supplemental feeding plan and increased the amount of food we grow on our property. All these steps will help our average antler size grow over the next couple seasons. We anticipate a rise in our average harvest (In Inches) every year.
We have 2 500lb. deer scales that we use during the season to record every deer we harvests weight. We keep records of this and see how our management plan is affecting the health of our deer herd. With everything we've done on our home farm, we expect our does to be healthier and produce healthier fawns. Our bucks will be healthier, allowing them to redirect more nutrients, once used to maintain their body nutrition, to antler growth.
Food Plots play a huge roll when trying to manage a whitetail herd. Deer, as well as turkeys need food year round to be healthy. We put in both summer and fall food plots to ensure we have enough food for our deer and turkeys year round. This April we planted lots of strategically placed food plots on our farm. We used a clover blend, chicory, alfalfa, corn, soybeans, and grain sorghum this year. This August, we will be planting some oats and winter wheat for the deer.
Here, we will lay out how we score your buck. We use the Gross Score Method when measuring your buck.
