2016 Year in Review-
2016 has been a very exciting year for us here at Genesis. And we are excited to see what 2017 has in store for us. Before we get there lets look back and see what has happened to us so far this year. 2016 was our 1st full year in business and we we excited and a little nervous to be honest to see what this year really had in store for us . We began this year by teaming up with one of the Leaders in the food plot and mineral business. Real World Wildlife Products. We are blessed to have the opportunity to work beside two of the best consultants and food plotters in the business Kevin Boyer, and Don Higgins, and everyone else on the Real World Team. It is nice to know that you have decades of knowledge on your side when you are assisting clients and making changes to their properties and moving towards their goals. So teaming up with Real World and adding that to the quality companies and products we already had lined up going into the year was huge for us.
As the year progressed we where focusing on getting the business on it feet and working hard to find clients and show them what we could do for them. With the Big Man's help from upstairs we were able to pick up some clients go out spend time with them, look at their properties, and give them a plan for their properties that we thought would help them move toward their goals of those particular properties. We ended up with 7-8 projects, that all worked out really well. We did have a project or 2 that struggled in the fall, not to the fault of anyone, just that Mother Nature decided to turn the water off here in Southern Indiana for about 65 straight days. We are pretty good but we can't trump Mother Nature.
We planted several acres of Real World Beans which all did phenomenal... Along with Beans we added Clover/Chicory, an Upland Game Blend and cereal grains for diversity on most of those projects. We were setting these projects up to be successful whether it be in the Early Season, Rut, or Late Season, and give the deer and turkey's all the options they
need no matter what type of weather we were going to have. Here in the Ohio Valley you never know what your going to get weather wise during deer season. In October we can average temps in the 80's during the day all the way to the beginning of November. When November hits weather is all over the map. 50-60's during the daytime, could hit 70, night time lows in the 40's and 50's but can drop into the 30's . We usually don't see consistent cold weather until well into December and sometimes don't see it until after Christmas. So we have to try to plan and prepare for every situation that we can when we are looking at a food plot plan. This year like I stated before we were able to do that in most cases, especially with clients that planted a good diversity of plots on their properties. Do to the lack of rain we had this fall we had a few fall plots struggle, most came in but not as well as the could have with more rain, but when you are battling drought conditions there is only so much you can do. All in all we had a very successful year and our clients were very happy and satisfied with the results that we were able to produce. Hopefully in 2017 God will bless us with some new clients to go along with the repeat clients we have coming back.
The Genesis team and our client were very successful in the field this year as well. All the members of the team were blessed to harvest a deer nice deer this year. If you don't follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with all the photos. We are always posting and trying to keep everyone up to date. If you not the social media type no worries we will be posting pictures on the photo page here on the website soon .
2016 had been a great year for us here at Genesis , and we have a lot of things in the works for 2017 already. We will be announcing those as they get finalized in the new year. One thing I can tell you is we are going to be doing a lot more filming, and keeping everyone informed on what is going on. We will be posting on Social media, and we are going to start keep as much information as we can here on the website as well. We are working on the online store and it will take a little long to get that finished as well, but we are hoping to give everyone the opportunity to order Genesis gear if they would like. So stay tuned, thanks for following and from everyone here at Genesis we want to wish you and your family's a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

This is a picture of a project we did here in Southern Indiana for some clients that live out of state. It turned out awesome. This plot is a mixture of Real World Beans, Chicory/Clover, and Wild Game Blend.
This is a picture of Real World Beans from another project we did in Central Indiana. Look at all the pods still there on Dec. 12th.
