Better Breeding

Jace Bauserman

KVR HiRes LogoWanting to provide you with the trophy hunt of a lifetime, Keystone Valley Ranch (www.keystonevalleyranch.com) is a first class whitetail hunting operation in Shermansdale, Pennsylvania. Consisting of mostly dense woods and prime food plots, this 200-acre ranch is a true whitetail hunting gem.

According to Rich Huff, co-owner of Keystone Valley Ranch, the keys to world class genetics are herd health, nutrition and reduced stress. Using knowledge gained through 20 years of top-notch breeding experience, Rich Huff and Ian Beal specifically breed for width, tine length, mass and beam length. Do they get it? Well, you can find out by jumping on their website or booking a hunt with them, or you can take my word for it. Then you can jump on their website and book a hunt with them. Keystone Valley Ranch specializes in big-framed trophy whitetail bucks scoring between 170-200+ inches. With a breeding stock containing multiple generations of 300- and 400-inch genetics, you are sure to spend a few days in the woods with your bottom jaw hanging open.

Though Keystone Valley Ranch strives to breed typical frames, they do get a number of non-typical bucks as well, and according to Huff, also get a fair number of drop tines. “We like to have a little bit of something for everyone,” said Huff. And have something for everyone this little slice of heaven does. In addition to offering trophy hunts, Keystone Valley Ranch also offers a management hunt. Truly, Huff and Beal can accommodate most any hunting situation.

Another huge key to the breeding success at Keystone Valley Ranch is how Huff and Beal manage their female herd. Being that females pass on a large portion of the genetics, Keystone Valley Ranch manages its female herd so that only the best does are reproducing. This type of strict management and attention to detail is how these guys keep their 200-acre ranch chalked full of monster deer. In addition, the ranch only uses males who exhibit and pass on the aforementioned antler characteristics that Keystone Valley Ranch strives to get.

They’ve done the work. They know the science. They have the animals. What do you need to do? Jump online and check them out at www.keystonevalleyranch.com. Not only will you be able to find out more about Rich and Ian’s impressive operation, but you can also view photos, check out their impressive lodge and book your hunt of a lifetime.
