It is time to start thinking of buying hunting land

Yes, I know that you can not see 5 feet in front of you in good hunting woods, but there is a lot of work to be done before you set foot in the forest.

Take these into consideration.

 

How are you going to pay for this purchase?

Loan, cash, C4Deed

How much can you afford?

What area are you planning to hunt.?

What type of game are you after?

 

Are you buying this alone?

If you have a partner, how do yo go into title.

What if one party wants to sell or needs to.

Is there a time period that the other owner(s) have to buy you out?

How do you determine value?

Can one party sell to a stranger without or with approval of the other party(S)

 

Who is hunting this land?

If owned by multiple owners how do you decide who hunts and where and if new hunters can be brought in to hunt also.

What kind of shelter(S) will be needed or allowed and where will they be located.

Will there be restrictions on the size and sex of game

How do you handle the property expenses...Money set aside for taxes up front?

 

These are just a few issues to think about when buying the property.  Many people think that buying with a good friend or relative is a great idea, but there can be a lot of issues when doing so.  Plan well! 

 

There are many more issues to think about...How ethical it that other party...could cause issue with the law for you.

 

Not everyone understands the real issues...call me and let me help...I will also give you a few ideas of current listing I would consider!

 

And Remember...North Branch, Minnesota has some great hunting to offer.

Our Snowball bush loved all the rain this year…

As did most of the plants in my area, all the rain did them good. This bush even got a good dose of fertilizer which I am sure also helped. I had also trimmed it back a lot and that should also contributed to the bounty. That middle cluster is all… more
It is Sunday evening and it looks like rain!

Yes, it looks like rain and this beautiful plant my wife has nurtured is looking for a drink. Actually, all the plants, garden and lawn could use a drink. If we don't get enough, tomorrow morning, very early I will start the 2 hour process. Need to… more
Look very closely at that old pole barn.

I see it all the time. I walk into an older pole type shed and the vastness of it can be awe inspiring. People are all ready looking at all the room they have for big boy toys. But, you must look close. Many older pole sheds when they were built did… more
Bill, Why do you post so much about nature…?

I was asked this by a person that follows my blog. It is a good and a fair question. My answer to him was… Well, you see, I live and work in a rural area. In my area we have a large array of wildlife. People who want to move to a rural… more
Phase one is done!

I posted yesterday about the Caterpillar. Will it did spin it's cocoon. From memory it takes about 3-4 weeks. At that time I hope to see a Pretty Green Luna Moth, but I am suspecting it to be only a brown moth with the eyes on the bottom of the… more

In an earlier log today I showed a large Caterpillar. This one to be exact. Well tonight it has started it's metamorphosis. It is spinning it's cocoon. Hard to get a real close up that is clear, but you can see the start of the spinning. I… more
I fish so therefore I am…

For me fishing isn't just about catching fish. It is about the solitude at times when I fish alone. It's about companionship when I have a friend or relative with. It is about laughing and explaining how a fish grows after you catch it. But,… more
