Minnesota Management Update

Minnesota Habitat Management Update

Emily and I had a great time with Mark Bernard up in Minnesota last fall (Episode 13)... he is absolutely committed to getting his wetland and prairie programs done right. He loves what he's doing... and he's a bit a a "go-getter" when it comes to working with the right programs to help cover the costs of what he wants to get done on his ground. In fact... here's what Mark sent me last week --

"Got good news on Thursday last week: The grant that had been pending on tree removal on the wetland area has been approved! It should entail 100% cost share and having the trees professionally removed, sprayed etc. In addition it should put a program in place to manage any future infestations."

The reason for this update is really simple. Yes... there is cost and effort in supporting and managing wetlands and prairie efforts -- but there are also programs available that will help you cover those costs. In other words... a little more effort can help you cover a lot (or all) of the costs of establishing and managing your piece of hunting paradise!

Don't forget...

  • If you can't watch on RFD-TV every Thursday at 7:30 a.m. CT or Saturday at 10:30 a.m. CT, you can always watch the shows here on the web site.
  • Sign up for the turkey hunt with me and country music artist Justin Moore. (Guys... this is going to be a hoot. We'll keep your travel time to a minimum, put you up in a great place and make sure you're sitting in a great spot when the sun comes up! The food will be great, too -- and we'll do our best to be "good company" for a couple of days!

And most importantly, keep on having fun outdoors on the farm!

Looks pretty cold and snowy out there today but that'makes winter a good time to make plans for inprovements and additions to ongoing projects like ours. The pheasant corridor mentioned in the show was financed with EQIP money and my cost was minimal.

I'd like to thank Chip, Emily, Remmy, Farm Journal and Outdoors on the Farm for coming out to our humble establishment. And thanks to the sponsors. I wear Muck chore boots to the barn every day and drive my '07 Ram truck on the farm and at work. Can't beat either one!
