    So it being a slow year for roofing and given my agricultural background, I was thinking of offering a habitat service. I have all the equipment and have checked rates at the co-op for tractor work but was wondering if anyone here has any experience or pointers.

    I always thought about having a side job like this, but all it does is take away from the days I’ll have to work on my own farm.

    I figure you would have to live in an area full of affluent hunters who don’t have time to do it themselves.

    Well after putting the word out through a few friends and roofing customers I have 9 people wanting food plots for the fall. I am charging $80/hr from the time I hookup to the trailer until I return home. The farthest away is about an hour and a half. Seed and fertilizer is added cost. Plus, I am putting up a few Redneck blinds and feeders. It's a start!

    I do. Not as a full time thing. I do probably 5-10 farms a year.

    I run CreekBottom Land Management in SE Wisconsin. There are some that go more on the consulting side of things, some that solely do installs, and those that dabble in both. I personally do both, but lean towards full property setup from consult to install.
