In this episode, Roger Culpepper, manager of Realtree Farms, visits with Skeeter Cotton, a bonafide beekeeper. Culpepper plans to take some honeybees back to Realtree Farms to give the food plots a boost. But he doesn't want to get stung in the process. This is a fascinating show for land managers (and would-be beekeepers), where you'll learn things like:

  • When honey is ready to harvest, and how to get it from the hive.
  • How bees can help the vitality of your food plot.
  • Which bees sting, and which bees can't.
  • Where to set up your hives for maximum benefit.

Plus, Realtree United Country's Slade Priest discusses land-buying tips, and how to research the neighbors on a potential hunting property. Realtree UC also showcases a dream farm full of big bucks, turkeys and ducks in Copiah County, Mississippi.

Looking at buying a piece of land? Learn whether or not the neighbors' management goals are similar to yours before shaking on the sale. (Bill Konway photo)
