Edge Feathering The Lost Habitat Management Tool

Edge Feathering The Lost Habitat Management Tool

Show Notes

Edge Feathering has been lost in the weeds for sometime now but it's time you should bring it back. When we look for habitat or land management tools we usually go with the new fad or silver bullet. Hinge cutting has been on the scene for a couple of years now with major publicity, but what if we told you that edge feathering can provide more benefits to more species of animals?

You might now believe that statement but let us break down all the benefits of edge feathering for you in the podcast to make you a believer. When we discuss the drastic difference between a person managing for quail and a person managing for deer it comes to no shock that edge feathering is a big part of quail management. Quail management requires a much more intense management plan. A good deer hunting farm doesn't mean great quail hunting, but a great quail hunting farm likely means a great deer hunting farm. We can learn a lot from quail management and if they have a tool to use that's beneficial deer hunters should listen up!

We break down how we edge feather, when we do it, and the year round benefits it provides during this podcast. Be careful after listening you will likely want to fire up the chainsaw and get to work! The lost art of feathering the edge is coming back and you don't want to miss out on this awesome habitat management tool! #ForLoveoftheLand
