Nature, Wildlife! No matter how you say it or whatever manner you say it, it brings good feelings and positive vibrations. Trees give us shade when the sun becomes too hot. The forest gives us food, shelter and everything we need to live. This instinct remains in most of us. That is why we seek out parks and forest reserves. A walk in the park, a good hunt, or a camping adventure somehow enhances our sense of well being. Some of us own lands dedicated for wildlife habitat. Whatever the reason, it could be for hunting or forestry, the land needs to be well managed to be productive.
There are a lot of wildlife consultants in PA that offer wildlife habitat design for PA residents. In choosing your consultant, chose a consultant that can advice you on how to maximize the game-carrying capacity, timber income and real estate value of your property. It is important to look for consultants that can also provide high quality food plots on your property and those who can provide guidance if you are determined to install the food plots yourself. Food plots may depend on the location, shape and forage species. They need to be designed according to soil types, deer movements and other feed available. They need to be the correct location, size and shape and contain the proper forage to encourage daytime sightings of deer. Some plots are designed to provide nutrition and others are for both nutrition and hunting. The longevity of the forage will depend on the maintenance of the food plots, herbicide and moving.
However, there’s more to habitat management than food plots. Wildlife consultants can also provide advice on how to create habitat that will attract wildlife to your property, whether you want turkeys, grouse, deer or birds.
Wildlife consultants mainly focus on the animals that roam the land, while the forestry consultants are more into the trading and caring for timber in the land.
