Our eleven member hunting club is fortunate to have an 1,100 acre tract in the
piedmont of Georgia to pursue deer, pigs and wild turkey. However for the last
decade we have struggled with keeping up approximately 100 acres of high
protein, lush summer and winter feed plots. Additionally we maintained a
supplemental feeding and mineral program as well; but we were seldom satisfied
with the results of our own direct efforts. Then we engaged Chandler Elmore at
SWI to help us redesign our programs and then implement these redesigned
programs for us. Since he began assisting us with the entire process, he has been
more effective than we were in creating a healthier deer population with larger
bucks and more turkeys while maintaining the pigs at an acceptable level. Our trail
cameras have documented this improvement. We also note that our costs of these
redesigned programs are actually about what we were spending on our own, just
now these monies are being more effectively utilized. In summary, our members
are unanimous in endorsing Chandler and SWI and we intend to continue with
them as our wildlife management solution.
On behalf of all the"Hunting For The Cure" children, I wish to personally thank you for your wonderful generosity in helping to make this hunting season an exceptional one for all participants. The hunting experienced by the children this year was only successful due to both the awesome blind and the Supreme Attrax that you donated to the cause. Because of the dry weather this fall, I could not plant my food plots until late in the season. When hunting season began, my food plots were essentially bare dirt fields. Without the Supreme ATTRAX, I don't think anyone would have even seen a deer, period. Of course the beautiful hunting blind that you donated made the experience so much more comfortable for the children. With the way that you set it up it will be easy to accommodate children in wheelchairs as well! Again, I offer a huge "Thank you" for your outstanding generosity. These gifts have made a real impact in many lives.
