WEST POINT, MS – The latest episode of “The Specialists” from Mossy Oak Capture features Mossy Oak BioLogic’s Austin Delano as he tells the story of his evolution from a kid who liked to hunt and worked on a farm to an industry-leading and highly respected GameKeeper.
Delano’s obsession for growing food plots and big deer started in 2004. A specific buck Delano acquired a picture of captivated his attention to the point of obsession. The picture was of the deer when he was an estimated 3 ½ years old and scored around 120 inches. The buck went on to survive another two years and grew into a true monarch of the the woods when he became a fully mature 5 ½ year old Alabama trophy, scoring in the mid-170 inch range.
“When somebody calls me a food plot specialist, or ‘The Food Plot Guru,’ it’s humbling and I guess I’m proud for someone to think of me that way, but I’ve just been doing this a long time and growing stuff is just part of who I am and what I do,” said Delano. “At the end of the day, I’m just a kid that loves to play in the dirt and watch stuff grow.”
Follow the story of “The Food Plot Guru” as he takes the viewer into a day in the life of a true GameKeeper. It’s available on MossyOak.com on demand and completely FREE. No membership or registration required.
