Wild Turkey Habitat Improvements For Leased Land

This is Huntin’ Land, the podcast for landowners and land hunters. If you like to stay up to date on hunting tactics, land management, land values, and land market dynamics, this is the podcast for you. On this episode of Huntin’ Land Podcast, Joe and guest co-host Matt Horton have a lively and informative discussion on wild turkey habitat improvements on leased land with guests Dr. Will Gulsby and Dr. Michael Chamberlain. Dr. Gulsby and Dr. Chamberlain explain that certain practices such as bushhogging, feeding, baiting, and planting open areas, must be avoided, as research shows they can harm wild turkey populations. However, through various conservation and management practices, such as trapping nest predators, trapping wild turkey predators, approaching the landlord with monetary compensation or grants to implement prescribed fire, and planting and maintaining native vegetation, hunters and land managers can take concrete steps to improve the habitat and overall turkey population. Although each practice leads to its own rewards and should be tailored to the individual’s needs, the guests recommend trapping predators, planting native vegetation, and approaching the landlord with a monetary proposal or grant to get the most bang for your buck regarding habitat improvement.

 

 

As a landowner, it is important to know what your land is worth. You may find yourself asking the questions like,  “how much is my land worth today,” “how much is my land worth per acre,” “how much is timberland worth,” “what is my farmland worth,” “how much is agricultural land worth,” and other such questions. Many factors go in to determining the value of land and seeking out the wisdom of experts is a great place to find the answers to your questions.
