               As many of you know, winter is a great time to do land consulting and the woods work that goes with it. Neil is very busy this time of year running his Argo across snow covered properties setting them up for landowners intent on having a "better season next year". Over the past 12 years of so he has done over 300,000 acres of site visits and reports. That's an awful lot of big deer and happy hunters.
Many of you also know that when Neil visits your property a good deal of the cost is travel expenses. We hate to charge for travel but with the cost of towing a trailer and lodging being what it is, we have no choice. Or do we?

In an attempt to keep expenses down we have developed 2 unique services for 2013: Long Distance Site Evaluations and Dial-UP Q&A for those of you needing Neil's services but not interested in paying all those travel expenses. He has been working with some of his clients via the phone and computer for the past few years and it is working well for all involved. For comparison purposes a schedule of Neil's services are listed below:

On Site Evaluations (The Best Consulting in the Country) --Neil visits your property and looks at every nook and cranny. He handles the dirt looks at how things are growing and figures out how to best lay it out for growing and hunting big deer. You work along with him and have a chance to ask any and all questions. You receive a professional assessment of your property's strengths and weaknesses, a half dozen or so layout maps, and a full implementation plan to help you achieve your goals. The average size of the typical report is 15 pages. Total Cost $1500 plus expenses.

*Long Distance Site Evaluation (A Great Start at an Affordable Price) Neil does a site evaluation based on maps, aerial photos, soil maps and samples and a series of phone interviews with the client You supply him with all the information you can get together on your property and he takes it from there. He evaluates your property, does a complete layout plan (overlaid on your aerial photo) and verbal feedback session. Neil has been working with aerial photography for years and can pick things up on maps and aerial photos that the average guy would miss on the ground. This product will not contain the detail or insight that an on site visit will yield but it will be plenty to get you started on the right path. He bills site evaluation consulting by the hr. The average cost of a long distance site evaluation is about $750 depending on client needs.

*Dial-Up Q&A ---(Pick Neil's Brain for Almost Nothing) If you would like to have Neil take a look at an aerial or topo of your property and consult with you on where to locate food plots, or what to plant where, or how to lay out your property to hold deer, or hang a stand, or a hundred other questions this can be done by phone as well. Here is how it works. You call Neil at 585 314 5583 and request a phone appointment. He will set you up with a time that works for you both and you take it from there. He may ask you for a map or a photo depending on what's on your mind. When you call in for the Q&A Neil will take your credit card and start the clock. When the call ends the clock stops and you are charged an hourly rate of $75 per hr. for his time and expertise. Want to save even more, get your hunting buddies on the speaker phone and share the cost of the call. One call can mean the difference between committing a costly mistake and getting it right or just give you something cool to do on a weekend. Minimum charge $75.
