Wildlife & Recreational Land Improvements
Many landowners seek additional revenue or benefits from their property outside of traditional sources (timber, grazing, and mineral rights). NMI has assisted clients with the implementation of hunting leases, special forest product gathering permits, road-use fee permits, easement exchange projects, and recreational fee systems. Whether you are looking at granting your neighbor hunting access or leasing your ranch to a hunting club or special forest products company, NMI can help make sure you are protecting your property from harm, yourself from liability, and being compensated in a fair and ethical manner.
