Growing Deer T.V. with Dr. Grant Woods

Mike, Skyler and I traveled to Branson, MO to Dr. Grant Woods farm for his annual Field Day.  We toured his farm he calls “The Proving Grounds.”  We spent most of the day learning how to grow healthy whitetails in harsh conditions.  Grant’s entire property is covered in rock and has not had rain in months!  Grant purchased his property of 1500 acres eight years ago and claims there were only a couple deer on the property when he purchased it.  Now, he has provided a healthy habitat with a large amount of food and has over 20 bucks that are 4 years or older on the property that he has Reconyx pictures of.  We all learned a great deal about Whitetails and how to limit the amount of stress on them in order to grow larger racks.   We also got to hang out with Larry Kendall, his wife G (owners of Muddy Outdoors) and  T.J. from Reconyx.  It was a weekend well spent and plan to attend the event next year!  Check out Grant’s site @

  1. Sounds like a good time to get to meet some great people and talk whitetail. I wanted to be able to attend but had committed in February to teaching a food plot class for NWTF Women in the Oudoors on the same weekend so maybe there will be a 2nd annual field day!

  2. Big Larry you need to tell your buddy to check out for a much larger selection of high quality hunting properties in Iowa and 6 other states.
