We currently manage more than 7,000 acres of private land consisting of cropland, river bottoms, fence rows, hillsides, densely wooded areas, and food plots. The Lamont Family has farmed in White County for six generations. Therefore, we understand the land and whitetail patterns very well. Our property has seldom been hunted prior to 2004 and as a result, there is an abundant trophy whitetail population. Lamont Outdoors also manages several hundred acres in Indiana that are available throughout the hunting season. Non-residents may purchase required licenses and tags over the counter upon arrival. Hunters interested in hunting this land have a chance at bringing home a second buck of a lifetime.
