There are two kinds of knowledge when it comes to land: the kind you get from academics, and the kind that comes from living on it and working it your entire life. If you want a land agent with both, you cant go wrong with Scott Sudkamp. Scott was born in East Central Illinois and has always been the type of person who prefers small town life. An avid hunter for as long as he can remember, Scott cut his teeth hunting rabbits, quail, and pheasants. Hes hunted game birds in ten states and counting. To this day, I still enjoy upland bird hunting behind a good dog with good friends, the same ones Ive hunted with for 30 years now, says Scott. But my greatest passion is bow hunting whitetails on crisp fall mornings. Nothing beats rattling in a rutted-up buck so close that you can see the condensation drops from his breath on his muzzle. Im also a pretty serious turkey hunter and chase ducks from time to time. Scott earned a B.S. in environmental biology from Eastern Illinois University and his M.S. in zoology/wildlife management at Southern Illinois University. He was a wildlife biologist for nearly 20 years, in public land management for six years in the states of Texas and Missouri, and private land conservation for 13 years with the Missouri Department of Conservation. Not only has Scott worked daily with landowners and habitat managers to improve their properties for wildlife such as whitetail deer, wild turkey, bobwhite quail, and waterfowl, he is also a Certified Wildlife Biologist through The Wildlife Society a credential that very few land agents hold. Perhaps youve seen Scotts name as co-author on a couple of field guides or as editor for a few Missouri Department of Conservation publications. For land buyers and sellers, his professional expertise, along with experience managing his own 40-acre farm, make him an invaluable resource. Whether youre buying or selling property for farming, recreation, or both, trust Scott to steer you in the right direction on assessment, management issues and opportunities, plus state and federal cost share programs. In my previous career, land buyers contacted me after the sale to help them with forest, wetland, and grassland management, including techniques such as TSI, native grass establishment and management, and wetland development and management. Now as a land agent, I can save them a lot of headaches by finding property that matches their goals, plus I can market sellers lands best attributes to appeal to more buyers, explains Scott. He is a member of QDMA, NWTF, DU and Pheasants Forever, and serves as a deacon on his church board. Hunting, fishing, canoeing, habitat management, and watching movies with his family are his favorite hobbies. Scott and his wife, Tina, have been married for more than 20 years and have two sons, Luke and Ben. With his combination of academic and real-world experience plus a get-it-done attitude, youll love working with Scott. Give him a call today.
