What Makes Plateau Unique?
Plateau’s only business is providing wildlife management services and products. Our founders worked for more than eight years to help pass the enabling legislation for the wildlife management law. One of our founders sat on the statewide committee that wrote the regulations that implement the law. Plateau continues to provide education to Central Appraisal District staff on the wildlife management law.

What’s In It For You?
It’s a combination of basic economics and increasing your enjoyment of your land. The basic economics part includes saving time and money, reducing your liability, improving the re-sale value of your property. While traditional agricultural operations also bring the same tax savings that wildlife management does, it comes at a greater price. These costs include the cost of the livestock, veterinary bills, fencing or the cost of growing crops. These costs disappear with wildlife management valuation.

If you are leasing your land, you have the difficulties that come with sharing your land with someone else. Most folks find they have greater freedom to manage their land the way the want with less work while they are improving the quality of the wildlife they love.
