This area is rich in row crops and continues to produce large healthy herds of deer and turkey. It is not uncommon for you to see 15 - 30 deer in a food plut during hunting season and flocks of turkey the same in size. We are, in short, flat run over with wildlife and this area of Tennessee is known for t his type of deer and turkey population. There are some real monsters waiting for you. This is one of those farms that has been kept secret to most for its reputation of successful hunting. It is affectionately nicknamed “The Petting Zoo”.
Deer Lake will be periodically fertilized and stocked. All the food plots have been professionally managed to accept access without pushing deer off the field or having to go by another field and disturb the population. The food plots are planted professionally as well as maintained by the landowner Steve Canfield. We do soil testing, spring, summer and fall planting of a selection of many forages to suit each food plot. We don’t just guess and till, throw some seed out. We have implemented and managing our fruit and nut tree planting. For example, select food plots have a variety of fruit and nut trees to spread the disbursement of food continually through the season, landscape and screening cover for blinds and funnel crossing points to allow cover for those finicky mature bucks to move around. Our food plots provide a variety of food sources such as ample clover fields to help food source in the spring to keep the animals here and keep them healthy.
