Genetics and location! 400 acres in White County, Illinois.

This strategy for this farm has a proven track record and all that has been needed to fill tags. The following stats back this statement up: 6 Boone & Crocket bucks have been harvested the highest scoring buck being 196 gross that netted 184, the remaining 5 bucks range from 171 to 178. Also added to the list are 8 bucks that score 150+, and 4 management bucks that range in age from 5 to 7 years old.
