Standing Above the Competition

Every year 10 Gauge places irrigated of food plots spread across these stand locations. Our 2-3 acre food plots ensure a high concentration of deer during both the pre-rut and post-rut season. This is a high-cost and labor intensive venture but one of many key ingredients in maintaining 10 Gauge whitetail hunting standards.
Another factor in our success is we limit the amount of hunters we take on each year. By controlling how many and what types of whitetail hunts each year, we can help continually grow bigger whitetails.
