Habitat Solutions-FAQ’s

1. How much property do I need? I only have 12 acres?

I have clients with as little as 7 acres and some have 300 or more. If you have the interest then I can help you.

2. What time of the year is the best to have you out to my property?

I like to get there once the snow melts so I can see all the rut sign and existing deer traffic from the past season so I prefer the months of March-June but I will come any month other than the hunting months of October through December.

3. Can I have my other landowner/lease partners come along?

Yes if you are involved in a land owner or lease partnership I encourage all those involved with a finical or hunting interest to be there. My management plans will only succeed when everyone involved is on board and understands how important each improvement is.

4. How much time does your management plan visit take?

I spend as much time as it takes to walk every part and habitat type, inspecting for rut sign and reviewing past hunting stands and set-ups. I also interview you and ask a number of questions that helps me see what your goals are, so I often times am there for a full 4-8 hours for properties of 40-80 acres.

5. Are there state and federal programs available to help with the investment?

Yes, several programs are available from the USFS, Fish and Wildlife and other state and federal agencies. Depending on the township your property is located in, the amount of acreage you own and its past farming history is all part of the soup in determining your eligibility in each of those programs. I have experience in seeking these out and will guide and consult with you on how to enlist your property.


The 7 Big Questions You Absolutely Must Ask Before Hiring A Habitat Consultant

1. Does he have a good reputation with plenty of references available? It is important to know what others say about his integrity, how he works with his clients, and if any controversy surrounds him or his business.

2. Does he produce a detailed written plan and a professionally drawn engineered site layout so you can refer back to it over and over again?

3. Does he require you to sign a waiver that he uses to restrict you and your hunting guests from showing your property to all your friends, or does he encourage you to share and show off your property to everyone?

4. What kind of person is he…has he spent his life learning about habitat improvements and does he own his own property that he has used as his development property?

5. Is he customer service oriented…and can you contact him with any questions and concerns about your plan long after you have paid him, and will he gladly respond back to you with helpful answers?

6. Does he focus on your needs…will he develop a plan to meet your goals, not what he thinks your goals should be?

7. Is he just as passionate about your success as you are?
