Neil Dougherty of Northcountry Whitetails has made a career of growing and killing big whitetails. Along with his father Craig, he literally wrote the book on food plot management for deer.

We recently asked Neil a simple question, How do you locate and drop the biggest deer on your parcel? Over the next five days Neil answers this question, starting with finding that buck through scouting, trail cameras, and a little research, then quickly moving into patterning and developing a plan of attack.
