#205 - Creating a Better Hunting Property By Managing Timber

#205 - Creating a Better Hunting Property By Managing Timber

May 16, 2022

My friends Larry Helmers, Ben and Keith Robinson have been working together on Larry's 80 acre property for the last four years to improve the wildlife habitat. The property is primarily timber and their management practices have greatly increased the number of animals that live on the property year round. When most whitetail hunters think of "land management" they think of creating food sources like food plots for wildlife. While this can be beneficial in some situations creating cover that is also a food source is a better long term solution to create a higher carrying capacity for wildlife. In this episode, the four of us discuss how they went about managing the timber and how the property went from being an average to below average place to hunt to being an incredible spot with multiple mature bucks, turkeys, and other game species living on it all year!

Topics Include: 

-making a plan to manage timber

-how improving timber stands creates more food for wildlife than food plots

-how to do a prescribed burn and the benefits it has for wildlife

#201 - Returning to Hunting As an Active Duty Military Member

#201 - Returning to Hunting As an Active Duty Military Member

April 11, 2022

Many people take a break from hunting throughout their lives for one reason or another. For some, eventually something sparks the interest to get back into it. That was the case with one of my best friends from high school, Connor Pickens and his buddy Jim. They both joined the Army in 2013, and with their busy schedules their time in the woods took a backseat. Recently, both Connor and Jim started hunting again after long breaks. In this episode, we talk about how they got into hunting, the challenges they faced trying to hunt while serving in the military, and how they ultimately decided to take the leap back into hunting. Whether you are in a similar position to them as an active duty military member, or someone who is just getting started hunting this podcast is for you!

Topics Include: 

-realistic expectations for new hunters

-the challenges and opportunities of hunting while serving in the military 

-the significance of camaraderie within hunting
