Near Gettysburg, South Dakota, the Brown family farms in 5 counties of private acres of corn, sunflower, wheat surrounded by rolling prairie grasses. In their dedication to responsible farming and land stewardship, they maintain healthy land for the family farming and wildlife habitat. Shelter belts, food plots and other wildlife management programs are all part of the yearly plan.
During the spring of 2013, while turkey hunting, I, Mark Braaten found 22 sheds without intentionally hunting for them. In only one agricultural field 16 shed antlers were pulled out of the Brown’s tractor tires.
The large herds of massive whitetail and mule deer, too many to count, greatly benefit from the sunflower and corn fields and the shelter in the river bottoms, coulees, wind breaks, draws and sloughs. The ranch’s many private acres are a shed hunter’s paradise.
