Few things in life are as exciting as harvesting a mature quality buck from your own hunting lease or property! But truly great hunting doesn’t happen by accident. It takes good planning, proper herd and habitat management and hard work.

Westervelt Wildlife Services offers wildlife and habitat management guidance and planning based on your specific goals as well as full-scale implementation of intense wildlife management plans. While most of our clients call us for help to maximize the quality of their deer herd, we have a staff of biologists with diverse specialties that provide a wide range of wildlife species management.

  • "Some updates from our Box Creek Hunting club/Westervelt lease located in Pickens County, Alabama. This just goes to show that all of our past efforts participating in the Pioneer QDM cooperative over the years are really paying off.   We are having a good season this year and still have two more weekends left to go! Thanks for recently starting the controlled burning program back up on the Westervelt lands. That really does wonders for improving the habitat for all wildlife and we love hunting the burned areas with all of the fresh new growth."
