Practice Common Sense on the Water this Summer

As you go boating this summer, it’s important to remember some safety basics, which aren’t a hassle and won’t get in the way of your fun.

Here are four tips to remember, courtesy of the National Safety Council:

  1. If you’re wondering whether wearing a life jacket is really necessary, know that 84% of U.S. boating deaths in 2017 involved boaters who weren’t wearing a life jacket. Bring a properly-fitted life jacket for everyone in the boat – big or small – and make wearing one a requirement for coming along.
  2. Know the “rules of the road” for boating, meaning how to follow markers and how to interact with other boats when they’re nearby. And know the laws in the state where you’re boating.
  3. Take the time to do a safety check of the boat before you head out, and be sure you bring a tool kit and a first aid kit.
  4. Just like when you’re driving a car, drinking alcohol and driving a boat is a really bad idea. If needed, have a designated driver, just as you would if you’re out on the town with friends.

PotlatchDeltic is committed to promoting safety in the outdoors as we sell quality recreational properties in Minnesota, Idaho, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alabama. Contact one of the real estate experts in the PotlatchDeltic Preferred Broker network to find out more about our land for sale.

Spring Scouting…Invaluable Info for the next Hunting Season

Taking the time this spring to scout areas you’ll be hunting this fall and winter is invaluable. But what do you look for as you discover the spots where deer bed down and travel?

Click for full article

Zach Ferenbaugh of The Hunting Public offers some excellent advice for your scouting trips on the WhitetailDNA website. Among his tips:

  • As you learn more about your favorite spots, take the time to also get the lay of the land for some new spots. You always want choices on where to hunt. 
  • Spring scouting is important, but it doesn’t replace the need to check out properties year-round.
  • When you find buck bedding, look for signs that will tell you what time of year the bedding spot is used, since that will vary.
  • Understanding the food sources for deer on a property is critical, especially in areas where options for food are scarce.
  • If you checked out a spot in the spring several years ago, that spot might not be the same now, so do your scouting every year. Such factors as hunting pressure and how trees are dropping acorns can change patterns of behavior dramatically.
  • Take your spring information and combine it with information gained in other seasons to decide where your favorite spots will be this fall and winter.

Many of PotlatchDeltic’s recreational properties for sale are in quality hunting areas and/or near public lands. As you do your spring scouting, talk to one of the experts in our Preferred Broker Network about how you could buy your own property to have for a home base this fall.

Meet our Arkansas Broker: United Country – Neeley Forestry Service

Since J.D. Neeley’s father started a forestry consulting business in southern Arkansas in 1972, Neeley Forestry Service, Inc. has expanded to become a full-service, one-stop shop for recreational land buyers and property owners through its affiliation with United Country Real Estate.

United Country – Neeley Forestry Service, part of the Potlatch Preferred Broker network, has five real estate brokers/agents, with over 60 years of combined real estate experience. The team also has six Registered Foresters, one Certified Wildlife Biologist, two Certified General Appraisers, and one Registered Appraiser.

“We understand all the pieces of the land sales puzzle, from how a property will offer recreational opportunities to its potential for timber harvesting,” says J.D. Neeley, President of United Country – Neeley Forestry Service. J.D. joined the business in 1985 and has since overseen its growth and geographic expansion around Arkansas and into neighboring Louisiana.

Located in what’s called the “wood basket” of south Arkansas and north Louisiana, Neeley said his company’s prospective buyers a

J.D. Neeley

re often looking to invest in timberland while also looking for a spot for hunting and other recreational activities.

Recreational buyers are looking for land to hunt, camp or ride their ATVs on, and the Neeley team’s familiarity with Arkansas and neighboring Louisiana, combined with their love of being outdoors, comes in handy when folks are seeking to buy land for recreational use.

Tying nicely into J.D. Neeley’s work, his entire family loves the outdoor lifestyle. And in keeping with the company’s history as a family enterprise, J.D.’s son Daniel works at the  company, making it a three-generation business. Daniel manages the Technical Services at Neeley Forestry Services and specializes in land sales marketing, forest inventory valuations, and the company’s use of drones (sUAVs and Remote Pilots).

The United Country – Neeley Forestry Service team has nine experienced team members, including Real Estate and Appraisals Manager Josh Barkhimer. Barkhimer, through an appointment by Gov. Asa Hutchinson, is a member of the Arkansas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board. Other staff members include Arkansas Region Manager Ricky O’Neill and Sam Crawford, Louisiana Region Manager. Ricky is a Registered Appraiser and Certified Wildlife Biologist and was named Forestry Educator of the Year in 2016 by the Arkansas Forestry Association. Sam joined the United Country-Neeley Forestry Service team in July 2018, when the company opened a branch office in Shreveport to serve the north and central Louisiana market.  Sam’s forestry career has spanned more than 40 years with 32 of those years as President of The Crawford Forestry Group, Inc.

There isn’t much public land open for hunting in the southern part of Arkansas, O’Neill says, driving demand for land sales to hunters who want property of their own. Also, buyers are often looking to reallocate some of their assets, buying a piece of land they can pass down to their family.

The company often forms relationships with families that last for generations, Neeley says. “In our management business, we often are working with land that we originally managed for parents, and that we now manage for their children or even their grandchildren.”

But what Neeley finds most enjoyable in his work is seeing the company’s clients enjoy their property and what it brings to them, both recreationally and financially. “I love to see properties well-managed and producing good timber revenues,” he says. “Helping people maximize their returns is very rewarding.”
