Good Planning Is Often The First Step Towards Success
Very few good things in life happen by chance: we have to plan them, we have to make sure we have
systems in place to see to it that we give ourselves the best chance at being successful. Take deer hunting, for
Finding great animal herds on a specific piece of land is not always coincidence. The landowner, or their
managers and support staff make sure that they have systems in place to be able to offer the hunter great

trip to be cherished for a long time.
Land owners that offer such leases to hunters and hunting clubs are very aware of this fact: they often
compete with other land owners in their region that, similarly, offer and advertise leases to – often – the same
hunters. Therefore it is imperative to ensure your land is managed and looked after in a way that will
promote great opportunities for the visitor to leave with quality prey after the hunt.
Therefore the land owner has to put systems in place that do indeed support all initiatives that will ensure
