"Whitetail Partners advice and plan solidified the improvements that I need to complete to maximize my hunting opportunities. The report provided suggestions for trail cameras, food plots, water holes, stands, and much more. Sam is very knowledgeable, made a great plan, and even incorporated some of my wants and ideas into the plan. I would recommend Whitetail Partners to anyone looking to plan their whitetail property."

Where It All Started

Nestled in the heart of Wisconsin's hunting culture, Whitetail Partners emerged from a rich legacy of hunting and an unwavering love for whitetails.

Embracing a philosophy of leading by example, we have honed our expertise through countless generations, showcasing innovative and time-tested solutions.

The History of Whitetail Partners


Founded by Sam Bilhorn with a vision to help others improve their whitetail property and enjoy hunting success through a systematic, professional design process.


Whitetail Partners offerings expanded to include virtual designs, pre-purchase reviews, and 1:1 coaching for habitat and hunting.


Within the first three seasons of business, Sam consults on 75 properties, covering 14 states and 7,500 acres of designs.


In response to the demand and focus for regional expertise, Whitetail Partners introduced a team of four regional experts in MI, OH, TN, & GA to offer the same high quality planning to clients across the country.


The Whitetail Partners team collaborates to design 6,000 acres across 16 states and pilots new services for roll-out in 2024.

Fall 2023 & Beyond

Our team is expanding and gearing up to provide new, innovative services, settling for nothing but the best for our clients.
