Abstract

If successful, land owners that want the habitat can rent the land to cattle producers (increasing access to pasture) without sacrificing their objective (good hunting), and cattle producers can provide good hunting without sacrificing their objective (good pastures). This dual purpose use for land can increase access income for both parties. The key is that the management of such lands must be timed carefully, and managed with both the birds and the cattle in mind. It takes more management skill, but it means the two can be compatible.
