As a result we stepped up our off-season supplemental feeding substantially to make up for the loss of browse that would have otherwise been available. We have put out over a 1000 lbs of feed through 7 feeders spread across the property so…

“Best hunt of my life!”

That was the quote from a gentleman with 30 years of hunting experience after his hunt last Saturday morning and that’s without taking a shot! He saw a total of 17 deer including 1 10 point, 3 8 point, a 4 point and a spike. He described one of the 8s as a ‘monster’. He…

We have captured a few shots of sparring bucks in the past years but this year we have multiple shots in many different sites. It has been difficult to review…
