Wildlife Habitat

For many landowners, this term is often misapplied to food plots or land which is not in production.  For every species, the improvement of habitat should be specific to the needs of that animal.  True enhancements take into account the food, cover, and water requirements every day of every season. 

While we do offer general recommendations (similar to state biologists) for habitat enhancements, the majority of our clients in this arena have specific goals or objectives in mind.  Our combination of knowledge in both research science and practical implementation gives us the opportunity to be able to create a long-term plan, achieve short-term results, and then continue our assistance through the life of management.

 

Odocoileus virginianus

Many "experts" recommend food plots, secret minerals, or perhaps some special devices.  If you're ready for a comprehensive strategy on a higher level, we can help.  We'll schedule a tour of your property and help identify the best practices to implement in specific locations with the goal of healthier deer and less yearly expense.  Incorporating your knowledge with our expertise will focus efforts where they will work and decreases the wasting of resources on principles that are of low merit.

White-tailed Deer

Colinus virginianus

Quail habitat management can be confusing, but it doesn't have to be.  Our landscapes have drastically changed in the last 60 years, but the methods of Walter Rosene and Herbert Stoddard are still working within the quail range.  While it's tempting to think you'll save money by learning it on your own, the truth is that there is an equal amount of mediocre information on quail habitat as there is good.

Meleagris gallopavo silvestris

The wild turkey is much more adaptable than previously thought.  Nonetheless, it favors areas where multiple habitat types are present....which we can create.
