We started managing our property in New York 5 years ago. All season food plots, leaving certain areas untouched, creating better access, and really pushing to let 2 year old deer go despite high hunting pressure on neighboring farms. “Don” is the first true product of our hard work we have put in. It was such an incredible journey watching and hunting this deer for the entire season after watching him last year as well. Seeing the results of this drives us to keep improving our management practices. New York has consistently been ranked the worst state to hunt in the US, so creating success by managing just proves that not only does it work, but it can work anywhere. We will forever remember this deer and all of the memories created around him.
