Hunting & Game Management
Hunting is a right of passage and a way of life engrained in ranching. It is the only way to fully know and understand your particular piece of the world, by interacting with its wildlife on a personal level. Whether this knowledge is possessed or needs development ICON RANCH can help. We can fully customize a property to your particular hunting needs taking into account species, hunting style and long-term goals for the ranch. We know hunting is a type of cultivation, this guides our planning philosophies for each individual property as all properties are different and deserve their own individualized assessment and strategy.
Thoughtfully located, sized and built for the particular characteristics needed.
Clearing & Logging
Primarily used to return grassland, brush land and forests to their optimal condition and health to optimize game populations and quality. Secondarily used to create bedding, feeding and fawning/calving areas
Used to bolster the health of the individual and the overall population of the targeted species. Locating the resources where the animals needs them, when the animals need them.
Wetland Management & Creation
We utilize wildlife biologists to tailor a management plan for each property targeted at specific species and hunting type. These improvements often become the crown jewel of a property and bolster the overall health of a ranch.
Live Water Development & Reclamation
This is another area where we bring in biologists to advise on reclamation efforts along with spring creek and pond development as sport fisheries.
Upland Game Bird Management
Foraging, cover and nesting area creation can have huge impacts on bird populations. Along with implementing preserve status on a property we can enhance bird populations to accommodate your hunting desires.
