Quick Tips to get Ready for Deer Season

In these dog days of summer, it not seem like deer hunting season is just around the corner. But it will be here before we know it, so it’s time to get ready.

Outdoor Life recently listed seven good tips for getting ready this summer. They center on taking the time to learn your hunting spots intimately, first by studying maps and apps, and then by hiking around the property and finding places where you can study different areas with your binoculars.

Then, technology comes into play. Trail cams – set up in places like food and water sources – are invaluable, and doing some fake scrapes near your setup spots can increase the chance that bucks will visit.

Then, put all your plans together, by working to spot and follow bucks that you will want to pursue once the season begins, learning their habits before it’s time to hunt. And finally, have patience when the season begins, knowing that patience and tenacity are all-important.

In fact, the story recounts how a hunter bagged a buck 51 days after he had first spotted his target back in the previous July. He knew the buck’s primary lair, and knew when to be in his stand and be ready.

Preparation is the key to success, and NOW is the time to start.

If you’re looking for a home base for your hunting trips, contact one of the land sales experts in the PotlatchDeltic Preferred Broker Network today. There’s still plenty of time to have a spot of your own to camp, hunt, recreationally distance, and do everything you love outdoors.

Now is the Time to get your Land Ready for Hunting Season

It’s no secret that when it comes to hunting, fortune favors those who plan ahead. And for recreational property owners looking to improve the quality of wildlife on their land, now is the time to take steps that can pay off in future hunting seasons.

The summer is a great time to get smarter about your land. Take soil samples to learn more about what will and won’t grow on the property. Set up trail cameras so you have a better understanding of the wildlife on your property, such as where deer like to bed down and find food and water. Also, scout the property, so every section will be familiar to you when it comes time for hunting season.

In addition to gaining knowledge about your property, this is also the perfect time to clear land for food plots, to plant food plots, and set up or repair your tree stands. As for water, there are fairly simple and affordable ways to use 50- to 100-gallon water tanks to create more water sources for the wildlife on your land.

Realtree.com has a helpful blog post with tips like these on its website. And if you don’t yet have a recreational property to call your own, contact one of the experts in our PotlatchDeltic Preferred Network of rural land experts to start your search in Idaho, Minnesota, Arkansas, Alabama or Louisiana.

PotlatchDeltic Announces Agreement to Sell 72,000 acres in Minnesota to The Conservation Fund

SPOKANE, Wash. –(BUSINESS WIRE, 6/21/20)– PotlatchDeltic Corporation (NASDAQ: PCH) today announced an agreement to sell approximately 72,000 acres in Minnesota to The Conservation Fund for approximately $48 million in cash. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the second half of 2020.

“This transaction represents a significant milestone in our long-term strategy to maximize shareholder value through rural real estate sales,” said Mike Covey , chairman and chief executive officer of PotlatchDeltic . “Proceeds from this transaction will further enhance our already strong liquidity position and flexibility. Our Minnesota ownership was approximately 330,000 acres when we began our rural land sale program over a dozen years ago. The timberlands that we currently own in Minnesota are heavily weighted to more remote areas, ideal for conservation and working forest protection. Nearly all of our ownership in the state is now under contract with a series of closings scheduled to occur through 2022.”

“The Minnesota’s Heritage Forest acquisition will be one of the largest land conservation efforts in Minnesota in recent history. Our goal is to ensure the 72,000 acres remain forested and sustainably managed as working timberlands,” said Larry Selzer , President and CEO of The Conservation Fund . “Our purchase and the ultimate protection of the PotlatchDeltic land will support northern Minnesota’s long tradition of timber production and outdoor recreation by preserving working forestlands and safeguarding jobs, while also protecting water quality and wildlife habitat, helping mitigate climate change, and contributing to local economies.”

This outcome is a culmination of long-standing work The Conservation Fund and PotlatchDeltic have been able to complete together to achieve conservation and economic goals. With this transaction and others underway, this partnership has been the catalyst to conserve more than 200,000 acres in the State of Minnesota for various conservation purposes, including working forests, protection of important habitats and public access. The Conservation Fund’s purchase will be made possible through its Working Forest Fund®, dedicated to protecting large, ecologically and economically important forestlands from subdivision and fragmentation, allowing time for permanent conservation solutions to be developed and implemented with local partners that strengthen rural economies and conserve natural ecosystems.

The PotlatchDeltic lumber mill in Bemidji will continue to operate successfully, as it has for nearly 30 years. The property being sold to The Conservation Fund as a working forest will continue to supply logs to these markets and provide for the protection of the essential jobs required to deliver and process the trees.

By creating solutions that make environmental and economic sense, we are redefining conservation to demonstrate its essential role in our future prosperity. Top-ranked for efficiency and effectiveness, we have worked in all 50 states since 1985 to protect more than eight million acres of land, including more than 311,000 acres in Minnesota .
