About the Owner
Ten Point Lodge, LLC is the Minnesota outfitter determined to wed sustainable agriculture, forestry, and the re-establishment of wildlife habitat. The intent is to develop the natural resources on our farm that have in the past been considered less than productive, and create an atmosphere that is appealing to wild game, visitors and beneficial to the landowner.
Dave and Jean Klinski have farmed the land for over thirty years and raised five children. Because they are the fourth generation of farmers on this land they have an understanding of what it means to take care of the land, maintain and enhance the existing ecology, and in a sustainable way preserve the woodlands The process of direct seeding is being used to establish new hardwood forests. So far, over 24 acres of previous pasture has been reseeded to hardwoods.
In the spring of 2007, 14.7 acres of the less productive work land was seeded down into short prairie grass for quail habitat. The maturing of these plantings has not only benefited released quail but has become a haven for all species of wild life. These plantings are all located along the edge of the woodland and bordering the cropland. In turn, these acres have become a bedding area for deer and for many hunters, they have become an added hunting experience.
After nine years of direct hardwood seedlings, fourteen foot walnut and eight foot oak are common. Every year these plantings are increasing in their ability to attract deer as areas for does to drop their fawns and bachelor groups to hang out for the summer months. During the rut more then one shoot able buck has been seen courting his lady in these plantings. With no barbwire fences on the property the mobility of deer is not impeded in any way and the ability of the deer to move freely has changed the hunters opportunities dramatically.
