Reflections from a New Hunter

Kim Martin, former policy intern at the Quality Deer Management Association and newly minted hunter, wrote an article titled "Why I decided to Hunt My Own Food."  If you hunt on your land, lease it to hunters, or are simply thinking about how to get the next generation interested in hunting, we thought Ms. Martin's remarks offer an interesting perspective.

Discount on HuntStand Pro App Available Through AFOA

Lanford Holloway is CEO of TerraStride, Inc., creator of the HuntStand Pro app, which has partnered with AFOA to offer a 20 percent discount on HuntStand Pro. This app is comparable to LandGlide and onX Hunt, but at a lower annual fee--even without the AFOA discount. We think you'll like the nationwide property ownership maps and boundary line information, as well as the capability of letting your hunters mark on a shared map their hunting locations to help you stay clear of active hunting stands. You can mark on a shared map where you plan to be on your property to help your hunters avoid setting up a hunt that might be ruined when you arrive.

Discount code: AFOA20 -- case sensitive -- provides a 20% discount off the normal $24.99 annual fee.

U.S. Policy Unsettling to Tree Planting Contractors

Deb Hawkinson, President of the Forest Resources Association, released a statement on the recently announced changes to the H-2B visa program. We asked her to help us look at the details of this news and what it means for forest landowners. One person commented on the AFOA Facebook page: "There are no planting crews to my knowledge that are not H-2B workers."
