Today, many landowners acquire land with the idea of managing it as a forest investment and for outdoor recreation. KRM specializes in working with private and corporate landowners to enhance wildlife habitat and improve the outdoor recreation potential of their forest and land resources. It has been one of our company’s goals over the last 10 years to demonstrate to our clients how closely related wildlife management and forest management activities are. Wildlife management consulting is provided to landowners for the purpose of benefiting white-tailed deer, wild turkey, bob-white quail, morning dove, and waterfowl habitat, along with numerous other non-game species.
Experience and Expertise
KRM currently oversees the wildlife habitat management activities on over 11,000 acres of private landholdings and hunting preserves, as well as over 80,000 acres of corporate landholdings. All of these landholdings have a primary management objective to continuously improve wildlife habitat. This involves combining the proper forest management activities with the additional wildlife habitat improvements, such as quality vegetation management and wildlife food plots. Our wildlife management specialists have over 40 years of combined experience managing and manipulating forest resources to benefit wildlife habitat.
KRM also practices Quality Vegetation Management (QVM). Jason Kiker is a QVM Certified Advisor and abides by a set of principles that create and sustain healthy habitats through professional, ethical and responsible practices.
