Jason played a pivotal role in the transformation of the Jenzano farm in Pennsylvania. Beginning its journey in 1967 with just 13 acres, the farm expanded to 190 acres. In the 1980s, a significant change occurred with the planting of 30 acres of Douglas fir, which subsequently became a sanctuary for various wildlife. By 1997, with Jason’s insights and collaboration, hunting strategies evolved to prioritize older, larger bucks. Jason’s emphasis on the importance of deer age over antler size greatly influenced the farm’s approach. As a result, recent seasons have seen the successful harvest of older bucks, underscoring the benefits of active deer and habitat management on a small property and the impactful partnership with Jason. In recent years, Jason has shifted the program into a buck harvest model that prioritizes maximizing antler size at maturity by minimizing perpetual protection and high grading buck harvest practices. Jason and Jim have been applying the same management practices to several of Jim’s Iowa farms with mind blowing success!
