Maximize your Property Potential with a Plan and a Goal

The Tad Ladd team has custom developed close to 19,000 acres in the past twelve years using their knowledge and experience of 30 plus years of hunting and managing west Kentucky whitetail. We are intimately familiar with the habitat and terrain and also knowledgeable on food sources and get the absolute most out of each farm we develop and manage, whether it is ours or a client's.

We want to work for passionate hunters who desire to be part of this way of management and hunting, targeting mature bucks, while creating the infrastructure and habitat to produce giant trophy whitetail. We can help you design and implement a planned strategy to bring your habitat and herd into a cohesive balance, and transform your farm, whether 50 acres or 500 acres into the whitetail paradise you want it to be and achieve our goal. We have been doing it with proven and documented success for 12 years helping clients from all over the country and every habitat environment reach their objective. There are no shortcuts, the work is hard, BUT the return is worth the effort, and our goal from day one is to help every hunter reach their potential, as a hunter and a land-owner. 

Tad Ladd team specializes in creating turn-key hunting property. We transform raw land into whitetail hunting havens. Experienced hunters know the hard work that must be performed, and recognize quality property immediately. Transforming farms is our specialty. Genetics alone cannot sustain a quality whitetail herd, and the transformation detail is hard work. Our vision, experience and our organized plan of attack is proven, documented and on display each time we host guests.

We know deer, land and terrain; we have been hunting right here where we were born and raised for 35 years. We know how deer move, what they need for cover and what they need to reach their potential, and we lay out our farms to achieve each one, and our record is proven and documented, as we put client after client on the bucks of their dreams.

Success starts with Preparation and Planning

We rely on our 38 years of experience in studying and managing whitetail to develop a plan of action. Every tract is unique and a custom plan is developed with you, based on each and every variable. We are sponsored by and partnered with the industry's leading brands, because quality products are as important as the plan itself. We have our own line of products that we use in our own operation that help give you an edge as well.

Our Client Experience

The best barometer of our success is the relationships we create and sustain with our clients. We are not a fast talking, guarantee to work kind of folks. We are honest and simple, straight answer folks. The work is hard, the effort is hard and the commitment must be real, BUT we are charged with protecting and enhancing our habitat and herd, and responsible for the resource we pursue and sustain. The friendship and trust we build with passionate hunters and landowners is our legacy, and we are dang proud of it. We are not afraid to sweat, and love to be in the trenches right with you every step of the way!

Tad Ladd testimonials

Offsite Reviews

"Tad is a whitetail ninja. He and his crew are the most knowledgeable and hardest workers I have ever encountered. Tad's natural instincts are simply a God given talent, and he communicates his thought process from start to finish like no one I have ever used in my management efforts ever before. We have turned my 115 acres in western Kentucky into everything I imagined and hoped for, exceeded my hopes actually, and knowing Tad is with us every step of the way I'm excited about what my farm can do in the coming years."    Nate Dallas, GA  Email Nate

"Tadd is a wealth of whitetail knowledge, and I've been hunting longer than he's been alive. Genuine and honest, and as hard a worker there is. He takes the time and does it right, and communicates every process with us from start to finish. I will use him and his team for as long as I own whitetail hunting property.''  John See, AR

"Tad Ladd is one of the most humble, hard working men I have ever met. His whitetail acumen is off the charts, and his ability to "see" the entire picture is remarkable, and even more remarkable the manner in which he helps me see it from every perspective. He is simply the best at getting the most out of every property he manages.''     Josh Duncan, WVA  Email Josh

"Tad does what he says when he says he will, always has. He has transformed our 150 acres in west Ky into exactly what we envisioned and is never more than a phone call away."   Sam Mahon, FL

"Tadd was able to turn a logged rock, lol, into a trophy producing big buck area. He uses Whitetail Institute seed and gets the most of every available foot of ground. What we thought was a three year project actually took him 3 months, and we will be hunting it this fall, absolutely remarkable."   Roger Hirshey - FL   Email Roger

"Partnering with Tad Ladd on our Western KY farm was a no brainer. Tad is knowledgeable, professional, hard working and honest. He took his vision and turned our farm into an incredible piece of property specifically designed to hunt and kill big, mature whitetails. From start to finish, Tad is there every step of the way and the attention to detail is incredible. Tad helped us establish entry and exit points for different parts of the farm, install and maintain our food plots, select and setup all stand locations for a variety of wind directions, develop a mineral and protein program and continues to be directly involved with the ongoing management of our deer herd. Our dream of having an outstanding whitetail farm in Western KY was made possible through our partnership with Tad. He is not only the best at what he does, but he has become a great friend along the way.''       John Mitchell - LA   Email John

"I hunted with Tadd in 2020, and immediately was blown away by his attention to detail and the organization of his camp, which is absolutely incredible. Tadd was as real as it gets and simply a genuine person, and his farms were laid out in a manner I have never seen. I knew I wanted to be in the area, western Kentucky is beautiful and the hunting is simply the best I've ever encountered. Once I decided to purchase a farm I called Tadd and he instantly gave me a complete summary of the area and everything and detail to go along with it. I knew once I purchased it I would have Tadd there the next day laying out a plan and designing my farm to be a big buck paradise. I was a bit intimidated but Tadd and his crew have got our new farm exactly as I had it pictured in my mind. Every minor detail is accounted for, and his ability to see the entire picture and the way he communicates it to me is something that I have never encountered anywhere before. Needless to say, he is my guy and will be managing my farm for as long as I own it. They are simply "good people", hard working and honest, and always on top of it. Lewis Gill - TN
