How To Design Your Deer Hunting Parcel


The Whitetail Web Class That You Need!

I'm really excited to introduce this web class series because it will change the way you create and hunt deer habitat for the rest of your life.

Since 2005, I've consulted on over 1000 parcels in 26 states. That's at least one every single week of the year for the last 15 years!

By the end of this web class, you will be able to look at your land, and be able to design your own parcel. You get to experience firsthand the exact steps and methods I use when I design a whitetail parcel. My concepts have been refined from hundreds of client experiences since 2005 and decades of advanced whitetail habitat and hunting success stories going all the way back to the mid 80s.

While nothing compares to an actual visit to your property in-person, this class will give you the tools to help you design a whitetail hunting parcel for yourself that a short "online consultation" can never provide.

Jeff Sturgis takes decades of pursuing his passion, and then professionally transfers those pursuits into the enhancement of his client’s, reader's and viewer's hunting and habitat experiences, across the entire country. Jeff prides himself in creating the healthiest free-ranging deer herds in the world of whitetails, as well as taking on the challenge of hunting the oldest bucks in the neighborhood. Not only has he been able to create, own and operate a successful business in the whitetail industry since 2005, but he has been able to work along side his wife Diane while doing so.

Jeff received the QDMA's Deer Manager of the Year award in 2004, and hasn't stopped learning since. After studying and creating over 1000 whitetail videos and articles, as well as working on over 1000 client lands across 26 whitetail states, Jeff is in a league of his own when it comes to the ability to design your habitat, herd and hunt - anywhere a whitetail roams!

I love your videos. I think I have watched every one at least twice. I just love your practical advice, with no hype or showboat... Keep up the great work.

Thank you so much for your free information. Great stuff! You inspire me with every video to improve my land!

Wanted to say thanks to WHS team .

Never get tired of hearing from my deer hunting coach! ☺ I hope you get one or two of those Monsters!

Dylan did a fabulous job and my son and I learned a lot!
—Steve- WI

As always I enjoy your advice and i try to watch every video.

I watched the whole class in just a couple days, very good stuff! I especially liked the first video because it goes through his thought process.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve their property's food plots, bedding areas and who wants to get that mature buck on the wall.
—Josh K

Your videos always open my eyes to things that I would not have previously considered . thx so much, you are a wealth of information.

Jeff, you have the best deer hunting advice on YouTube. I always watch your videos. I can’t wait to try some of these tactics this year.

Why I don't believe in "online consultations"

Since 2005 I have designed over 1000 deer parcels for paying clients in 26 states. However, I understand that not every individual can pay my daily rate of nearly $3000. Also, even though I am visiting 125 clients during the 2020 client season, that total number is likely the most I will ever again. I really like to stay home more often throughout the year to spend time with family, friends and the whitetail lands that I personally work and hunt on. I am often asked to complete online or phone consultations and those practices simply are not effective and even with the level of experience that I carry, I do not believe that those level of services create enough depth and value to place my stamp of approval on. Due to a lack of time, folks that simply can’t afford to have me visit their land and the level of inaccuracy that online or phone consultations provide, my WHS web classes have been born!

An exceptional compromise

I am extremely excited to deliver to you what I feel is an exceptional compromise between my actual boots on the ground at your deer parcel versus the lower level of accuracy for online and phone consultations. What I try do my best through my web class is to take you through the logical progression of steps for what it takes to design your whitetail parcel in person, by allowing you to make the decisions of balance needed to accurately build a plan that fits you, your resources, your land and the local needs of the whitetail herd. The concepts work, the concepts have been originated by me personally and the concept have been proven over decades of work by tens of thousands of viewers, readers and clients. While these are the concepts that flood my books and over 1000 articles and videos that can be found on my website and YouTube channel, this is the most comprehensive set of content that can be used to effectively design your whitetail parcel – within the steps that you should work to complete them in.

By the conclusion of the class you should know where to place your bedding areas, habitat plantings, deer travel corridors, waterholes, morning stands, evening stands, food plots, much more – and WHY! In the end your land should pass the 7 tests of whitetail habitat and hunting design and if not, well, the lessons, books, and exclusive private membership in our WHS Facebook web class and client page, are all resources to help you get the job done right!

My WHS Web Classes (more to come) are the next best thing to having me design your land in person, and I am excited to open the availability of these classes to a far greater number of folks than the number I personally work with per year – at a much more affordable price!

What Others Are Saying

My son and I had Jeff come out in early August 2022. We worked on the plan he provided us and finished it up the second week of September. We improved some bedding areas, combined 2 smaller food plots into one large plot, and created a deer trail all the way around the property to tie everything together. We hung several cameras on this trail; each over a mock scrape. We instantly noticed several deer using this trail. By thickening up the center of the property, a couple of nice bucks started to use our place as their new home. This provided me with the opportunity to take this nice 10 point the second week of November. He was a local buck on our 40 acres, and we had several daytime pictures of him. We had been working on our property for about five years and thought we were on the right track. However, by having Jeff come out to help us improve our habitat plan, we realized we needed to make some changes. Now we are very confident that we have a great deer hunting property now.

Huge shout out to Jeff Sturgis and his infinite whitetail wisdom. I installed a waterhole back in August just for this one particular buck after watching Jeff's videos. Before too long all the deer in the vicinity were hammering it including this guy. Fast forward to the morning of October 27th when a hot doe was thirsty around 8:20 AM and led this guy right past me at 30 yards.


Hi Jeff,
Just a quick thank you for using your passion for hunting and teaching to help hunters like myself. I have been hunting Whitetail for seven years, but by taking the time to learn and be strategic, I have become ten times the hunter I was last year! Much of that is thanks to you. I was able to fill three tags this year; one being my first harvest with a bow and one being my first buck. It feels great!
I wish you the best and look forward to learning more from you and supporting you in the coming years.

I can’t begin to express how happy I am to have made the decision to choose Whitetail Habit Solutions (WHS). Jeff and his team have done amazing things for everyone which includes me. As an out of state owner my time is limited and I knew I needed help so I researched and follow Jeff for awhile and the decision was very easy for me to learn from to get me on track. Kevan Smith came out to the property and was absolutely a beast getting things straightened out and offered great information to help me understand how to properly set things up and how to hunt the property the correct way.
I was able to turn my struggle over the years and turn it into a successful memory. I was able to do this by following the proven concepts Jeff created over the years. Staying focused to maximize the potential and leverage my limited time was important for me in order to become successful. WHS was able to help me get there. By following the concepts it offers a higher potential to the success you’re looking for and also gives you those important memories with family and friends on the way to fulfilling your dreams.
A Big Thank You to Jeff choosing to share for all to learn and for his team for sharing his vision. Your awesome!

Here are some photos of my 1st years success and more to come.

I had a fantastic experience working with Kevan this past winter. I am very new to hunting and have learned so much valuable information on herd development through land improvements. Based upon the site visit , Kevan really took the time to understand where we were at in our hunting journey and from there built our stand and food plot locations. We have had a successful 1st year no till food plot experience using buckwheat! ( I have a picture attached of the buckwheat plot). I have also taken the hunting hills web class to better impact my hunting skills in North Central PA. Jeff is a great educator. I am now prepared to hunt from my stand locations based upon winds/thermals in the hill country of PA. I simply can not that WHS enough for their help. We are excited to apply our new found education to hunting this fall.
Thank you again!
