Erich Long is a true land steward; one who loves habitat and the life that it houses more than really anyone that I know. But what he lives for even more than that is to share his knowledge with those around him. We have spent hours upon hours on the phone together, talking about everything from clients’ consult maps to ragweed to big goals. He truly feeds off of others’ eagerness to learn more about enhancing the quality of wildlife and its home.

Erich long is the consummate deer manager. His skills as a manager, his passion for conservation, and his experience as an educator blend together to create not just a consultant,  but someone who cares about your success as a land and deer steward. His ability to communicate his wealth of knowledge on deer habitat, biology, physiology is truly separates him from the others in his field. Erich lives and breathes the deer management lifestyle, and I can think of no one else I’d rather lean on in my journey as a deer steward.
