Awesome Antlers Unlimited is owned and operated by Barry and Corinne McGrew with the help of our sons, Jared and Reece. We are located in Tama County, Iowa on a 100-acre farm with approximately 35 fenced acres split into 17 different paddocks.
We are proud members of the Iowa Whitetail Deer Association, the Minnesota Deer Breeders Association and NADeFA. Barry was a founding member of the Iowa Whitetail Deer Association; he has served several terms on the IWDA Board of Directors and has also served a term as Vice President. We feel that being involved in these associations is key to the survival of deer farming as we know it. Awesome Antlers Unlimited would like to ’’thank” all of those whom have served so selflessly in the local and National associations to make Deer Farming what it is today.
Awesome Antlers has had an active A.I. program since 2003. While we appreciate a great looking pedigree, we really appreciate the look of the buck even more. We are breeding for wide, huge main framed bucks and in most cases any extras are a welcome bonus. Of course after the breeding season come the fawns. We have bottle fed many of the doe fawns over the past several years. This has given us a very calm workable herd, which has made a tremendous difference at testing time. The does just seem to work themselves through our handling facility. We are T.B. accredited, Brucellosis certified, and we have an Oct. 15, 2002, CWD anniversary date.
If you are ever in our area please give us a call and stop in for a visit. We would love to talk deer and give you a farm tour.
