PG 14 // THE PROFITABLE RANCH : BEST PRACTICES OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE AG PRODUCERS

Some folks purchase rural land for pleasure as much as for profit. Motivated by a dream of running a hunting operation, raising cattle or having their own place to roam, they may forget that the land can help to pay for itself.

PG 116 // THE TEXAS AGRICULTURAL LAND TRUST : CREATED BY LANDOWNERS FOR LANDOWNERS

Landowners can use conservation easements to help manage the future. “In the most literal sense, a conservation easement is a perpetual restriction that prohibits future development and non-agricultural commercial uses, while allowing ag producers to continue doing what they do, whether it’s grazing, growing cotton or running a hunting operation,” said Blair Fitzsimons, CEO of the Texas Agricultural Land Trust (TALT) based in San Antonio.

PG 180 // MARKET REPORT: OFF TO THE RACES AGAIN?

Some folks purchase rural land for pleasure as much as for profit. Motivated by a dream of running a hunting operation, raising cattle or having their own place to roam, they may forget that the land can help to pay for itself.

PROFILE
PG 34 // TIO KLEBERG

PG 78 // RANDY HODDE, HODDE REAL ESTATE

Knowing the properties you’re listing or that your client is buying is one of the keys to being a successful rural real estate broker. As a third generation Washington County native, Randy has a competitive advantage.

SPORT
PG 52 // CAMERA SURVEYS: THE EMERGING WILDLIFE TOOL

Game cameras have become a popular scouting tool for hunters, but are they the right tool for you?

PG 64 // MANAGING HUNTERS AND GUESTS

Permitting hunters and recreational guests on your property involves personal interaction. Personal interaction generally escalates into person problems.

PG 129 //  “NOT” PRISTINE MOUNTAIN FLY FISHING FOR TROUT

What is the exact opposite of fly fishing in crystal-clear water in a pristine mountain stream for elusive trout? It has to be “Noodling” for catfish in murky brown water.

PG 146 // HUNTING IS NOT ANIMAL CRUELTY

A majority of our country’s citizens are urbanites and have no experience with nature and rural life. Although they lack knowledge of agricultural and wildlife production, an ever increasing number crusade for ending animal cruelty, food from natural and sustainable sources and banning firearms and hunting.
