Episode Notes

This week, we step away from private land management and the real estate side of things to discuss public land management. Over the past several years, public land hunting has certainly become more popular and trendy. With that taking place, you tend to hear more opinions about how the state or federal government should be managing the land.

So we went straight to a source who works daily for The US Forest Service as a wildlife technician. Chad Keith describes in full detail how areas are selected and managed within each district. There are certainly pros, cons, and many complications that occur when managing public land. Of course, the public has a say in what happens, but many times there is misunderstandings of the objectives. Needless to say, there are incredible efforts being made to improve habitat across the landscape.

Let us know what you think regarding the public land management system. This is not an easy job! Could you imagine orchestrating 100's of 1000's of acres to be managed within view of the public eye each and every year?
