These are some examples of stand sets that we have on our personal farms, and well as some that we have set up on client farms that we manage.

Mike's 2015 harvest 61/2 yr old, mature warrior
Look how vascular his antlers are....
We couldn't be more happier the way these two areas turned out this year, especially for being areas that have never been touched before.
Sometimes bigger is not better. Small, Narrow food plots are a dynamic way to make your deer feed and move in the direction that you want them to.
2018 Season Started out with a BANG! Well actually a TWACK! As I was blessed to take my 1st Full Velvet Deer in the state of Kentucky, on what was by far the hottest hunt I have ever been on. Labor Day weekend and it was 106 degrees that day I harvested "Brows" But it is the beauty of September Openers you have a few days to catch them in Velvet and the are still on a summer feeding pattern..
If you ever have any questions on what mineral to use..... Question answered Maximizer. This will make our 1st full year of using this product, and seeing is believing. Great for your deer herd, giving them the nutrients they need and the bone growth you want. If you think we are kidding around check out some of our deer below on our own personal lease. This product will not turn Dinks into Booners, and neither will any other product on the market, so don't be fooled. But this will get your deer to the Maximum Genetic Potential.
Mike's 2016 Buck. Blessed with his best Buck to date.
2017 was a different type of year for the Genesis crew. We had several close encounters during turkey season, just didn't work out for some of us.
We entered deer season with high expectations with several shooter deer on camera all summer long. A few team members just weren't able to get the stars to align and get the job done.
Still a great season non the less and we are looking forward to shed hunting and keeping cameras running to start lining up the hit list for 2018.
2015 deer we called 8 ball, he was a straight 8

2016 Management Project Photos
As for our home state of Indiana we just were not able to get on that Big mature whitetail. It was a season of great encounters with a lot of 2 and 3 year old deer we just couldn't find the 4 or 5 year old deer that we like to target.... No Regrets !
Pro-staffer Matt Malloch was fortunate to take a great deer of his own

2017 Management Projects
After wrapping things up in Ky, we headed out to "Big Sky Country" Montana for our what has become annual Public Land Elk and Mule Deer hunt... While we weren't successful with a harvest, we were blessed as always spending 10 days in the beautiful back county...
Cleve's 2016 8pt. " Realtree Buck"
Variety is the spice of life. On this project the client wanted standing corn in there plot, so we incorporated Real World Clover/Chicory blend around the corn to give the deer food all spring and summer until the corn was ready, and to keep the browse pressure off the corn.
