William's Blog...with a smile!


Hunters, wondering if you are looking in the right area?

When out looking at land for hunting you need to do a little research.

One you need to know does your quarry live in that area.

Is it in abundance.

Is the age structure what you are looking for along with quality.

What you need to do is stop at gas stations, small bait and sport shops.

Talk to the people there.

Talk to the people outside.

Go see the mail carrier.

|Talk to people down the road from the land.

An hour of talking can help you decide if the area is right for you!

Hi William, great advice and I love the picture of the buck what a rack he has on his head!

Are there check-in stations around the area.  There are here, so sometimes a good idea to see which ones check in the most and biggest deer.

When I was a bride, I was married to an avid hunter.  I'm not so much into hunting as a sport.  In fact, I use to put Bambi sheets on our bed at the beginning of each hunting season, just as a reminder!

If someone is looking for good hunting property...use an experience agent that knows the area and is a hunter. I know the hunting property in my area. I love selling hunting land.

We do have check in stations in the area, but so glad my husband is not a hunter. Although we have lots of deer in the neighborhood, I would like to see hunters with a bow and arrow remove some of them.  Neighbors are thinking of asking the mayor to allow this. We will see.

Great adavice Bill...Especially in small town businesses. Some will be tight lipped and other will be willing to share.

Bill, you are the expert at selling hunting land.  In addition to talking to all these other people you have mentioned, they should also talk to you.

What a great post.  I grew up in rural northern Ontario and a local trapper used to trap on my parents farm, all year he'd hike in the woods and keep a note book and he was counting the population, looking at signs so he'd know what was there when the time was right.  You have to read the land in order to keep it populated in the right ratios so as not to upset the balance in nature he always said.
