OUR STORY – WHERE MIDWEST WOODLOTS BEGAN
Ken & Cheryl
Ken and Cheryl have been married for 32 years now and started Midwest Woodlots 15 years ago. After a 12 year on the road career in Bass Fishing, Ken was looking to return home to the good life with his wife and friends in Pierceton In. Cheryl has enjoyed 40 years of service to a local company called Biomet. We had been apart in our careers way to long and looked for a way to be home and together on a full time basis. Cheryl asked Ken why he didn’t take people hunting the same way he used to take them fishing and there it was Midwest Woodlots was born. After asking a few neighboring farmers what they thought, we started our first years with 3200 acres and enjoyed a great year of fun and hunting. We still have those very same hunters returning today as our management program has improved as well as our hunting programs.
We have a great hunt at an affordable price. Our kill ratio is very high always achieving at least 60%. Our deer keep getting bigger with our program, as we only allow one hunter for every 200 acres we lease. This formula has worked well for us and will continue to not over hunt our area for these very reasons. The neighbors harvest does every year, but we do not in an effort to insure future years of success. We have been here solidly since the start and see no end to this amazing career we have chosen. While you are here, we discuss with everyone future plans and new ideas. Everyone that hunts here is part of the decision making process. We invite you to come hunt with us and see for yourself why Midwest Woodlots with over 12,000 acres and growing is one of the premier outfitters in the country
