A new original digital series titled Pay Dirt is available on the Realtree 365 app. Hosted by Midwest Whitetail’s Bill Winke, along with Realtree United Country Land Pros, Pay Dirt is a land management show featuring tips on how to buy, sell and maintain land for hunting and recreation. New Realtree United Country hunting properties are featured each week to give viewers insight into real land-buying and management opportunities.

In this inaugural episode, Winke looks at the benefit of planting apple trees and how they can help deer. He digs deeper and explains how to get the most out of your fruit trees, too.

Pay Dirt goes beyond the standard land management shows you’ve seen in the past,” Winke said. “In fact, we have special segments called Dig Deeper that teach you how to maximize land value in ways most people have never seen. Plus, the Pay Dirt team is made up of Realtree United Country Land Pros. These men and women are truly hands-on with these topics in their day-to-day lives. It’s a great combination that turns what could be dry topics into entertaining and educational content for everyone to enjoy.”

Then, Realtree United Country’s Slade Priest showcases a property he hunts and explains the basic needs of a deer, and how to find those in a given property. How the land lays and what it offers is important.
