The long summer days are starting to get shorter which means only one thing; hunting season is around the corner. We've had a great couple of weeks working with landowners to bring to you 12 new listings in the months of June and July. These listings bring new opportunity for private access to hunting land, fishing, birding, and farm & ranch activities.
Summer is here! Which means the kids are out of school, the weather is nice, and it might be time for a little family vacation. With gas prices sky rocketing and flights getting more expensive, maybe a getaway closer to home is what 2022 is calling for. In a recent partnership with RV Share, LandTrust is opening activity packages for RV camping on listings throughout Montana. Discover unique and exclusive RV destinations on farms & ranches. If you're looking to car travel, we have a plethora of farms and ranches across the midwest that are offering great farm & ranch activities that allow you to connect easily with farmers and ranchers, explore their way of life, learn more about where your food comes from, and support the local farm & ranch way of life.
April is a busy month for our landowners as many gear up for calving season and/or planting season. That didn't stop 11 landowners from going live with their LandTrust listings though! We welcome many new listings across the state of Nebraska, but also a few from Montana, Kansas, Wyoming and Michigan. Whether you're looking ahead at whitetail hunting in Nebraska or Elk hunting in Montana this fall, we've got plenty of options for you. Likewise, if you're searching for a remote getaway from your own busy schedules this summer for a little R&R, we have many landowners offering just that!
Folks who work at LandTrust have a passion for all things outdoors— most especially hunting. After all, LandTrust was created to help people #huntmore. So it’s not surprising when we polled the team for tips for a great Nebraska turkey hunt that we uncovered some great ones. Experienced to first time hunters.
Turkey season is in full swing and many tags have been drawn for big game hunting in the fall. More hunting means more need for space, which is why we are excited to share the addition of these ten new listings across Montana, Nebraska, Kansas and California that were published in the month of March. Many offer hunting for spring turkey season or fall big game, but they almost all present the opportunity to visit for farm and ranch activities as well as birdwatching this summer!
Starting a new project can often times feel intimidating, especially when your business is on the line. There are a lot of questions that must be answered prior to committing changes. Weighing the pros and cons takes time and consideration. The team at LandTrust wants to be as supportive as possible through this variable time. We are here to answer whatever questions landowners have and discuss any skepticism. The head of our Landowner Profitability Program, John Hansen, wrote about Balancing the Enterprise Mix and has some useful insight on financial analysis tools and methods when it comes to expanding your operation.
A few weeks ago we shared 24 new listings that went live in the month of January. February was just as prosperous with listings published across Montana, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, South Dakota, Texas and California. Sportsmen are booking their Nebraska turkey hunts and planning ahead for fall elk hunting in Montana. Meanwhile, birdwatchers are eager to explore migration season in the midwest. Not to mention the family-friendly farm and ranch activities such as cattle brandings, farm tours, and other agritourism experiences. We are excited to share this growth with our LandTrust recreators and can't wait for them to explore these new listings!
Nebraska is frequently referred to as a flyover state and gets overlooked by tourists. What many don’t realize is that the state offers a plethora of excitement for those who visit Nebraska. In the spring, nearly one million sandhill cranes stop in Nebraska along their migratory journey. Not only is the state excellent for bird watching opportunities, but also for hunting experiences. Particularly, waterfowl hunting.
LandTrust is the recreation access network that partners with ranchers and farmers to connect them with outdoors people looking for new and high quality experiences. Ranchers and farmers face a multitude of variables that are out of their control such as floods, droughts, cattle prices, crop prices, etc. This inconsistency leads to challenges when it comes to supporting family-owned operations. Nebraska landowners, Natalie and Luke Kovarik, are new to LandTrust but are looking forward to the possibilities that the partnership can bring to their operation in the coming seasons.
LandTrust exists to open access to millions of acres of private working lands for unique outdoor experiences. The trust that must exist between landowner and recreator is crucial, that is why it’s in our name. As the third party platform, we trust not only that our landowners will be honest and our recreators respectful, but that they will also be well-educated. Which is why we are proud to partner with Kalkomey, a platform that develops courses, education materials, and systems that make outdoor recreation safe and easily accessible.
