Spring 2012 Newsletter

With spring well on its way toward summer and as we shake off the last of the chilly mornings, we’re looking forward to getting back out on the water, saddling up for a trail ride, and shooting some clays at the local course.  It only takes a few minutes to remind us why there are few better arguments for preserving the rural sporting lifestyle than by simply getting outside and enjoying the plethora of activities available.

In this edition of the Field Sport Concepts newsletter, we invite you to learn about our approach to assisting landowners in identifying opportunities for investing in their legacy.  You will also find stories about Sporting Heritage Corp’s collaboration with Beretta, McKee Carson’s digital “storybooks,” and Trout Headwater’s commitment to sustainable energy at their Montana headquarters.  If there are any topics that you’ve been puzzling over (like how to restore a stream to promote trout populations or what land use elements should be considered in order to maximize the value of your land), don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will be happy to send you information or to include it in the next edition of the newsletter.
