This property is not for everyone, but if you are a lover of the true outdoors and you enjoy hunting deer, turkeys, and waterfowl of all kinds as well as fishing, then this could be the one for you.  The owners have practiced very serious deer management and have not taken any immature animals.  This is not a “drive by” so don’t waste your time doing that.  Better yet……call me and let’s take a tour and see for yourself why this property could be that special place that you’ve been looking for.

Things to consider when purchasing Land

 

 

When Buying Land, consider all of these factors

Purchasing a large parcel of land is basically the same process as purchasing a home. You need to know what your intentions are with the land, how many hunters can the parcel handle safely, and/or how many acres do you wish to farm. Do you intend to build someday? A home, a cabin, a pole barn, etc?

The following are some things you should consider, and by all means, always feel free to ask us questions.

Perc Tests

I highly recommend having a “Perc” (short for Percualtion) test completed before the purchase if you have any intentions of building.

Perc tests are done by the potential buyer, and at his or her own expense generally speaking, and involves going to the local health department and purchasing a permit, and then hiring a heavy equipment operator to dig holes. Generally 3 holes are required that are 8′ wide and 10′ deep. The health dept. official will need to be on site when the holes are dug to verify soil composition and make a report, which you will receive via mail.

Size

When looking for a house, you consider the square footage of it because of how many people will be living there, visiting, etc. Similarly, when considering a parcel of land, you want to make a determination as to the acreage you will need for you and your fa,ily and friends to safely enjoy. Are you primarily bow hunters? Are you primarily gun hunters? This makes a drastic difference as gun hunters must be separated by much more distance to be safe than do bow hunters.

Having the largest piece of land on the isn’t always the best course of action. Go for quality instead of quantity. You may be able to purchase a quality smaller parcel that would give you all that you desire. Any piece of land has upkeep too. Mother Nature will do her work to some regards but there are some aspects of your land that will require your attention. This is especially true if you plan to use your land for specific purposes such as farming, but upkeep on a parcel of hunting land can and will be extensive at times. Cleaning up after storms, keeping trails mowed and cleared, planting and tending to food plots if you choose to plant them are all things to be considered.

Terrain

Another factor to consider in determining what you want out of your land purchase, is the type of terrain you are acquiring. Not all land is created equal. Land has qualities or drawbacks just like a home might.

Factor things in such as hills, flatlands, soil temperament, water sources, woodlots, bedding areas, and other things that can affect how you can interact with your land. A farmer would want good soil and flat land. A hunter will want food sources, water sources, good sightlines, and cover. Also consider the surrounding terrain and/or what it is like. Is it Farm Land that allows the deer both food and cover without your expense, or is there homes nearby?

Hunting Grounds

If you are a hunter, you’ll want to know if the land you are purchasing is in fact allowed to be hunted on. Owning your own hunting property is an opportunity to give back to the land and make the land prime hunting grounds. You’ll have the freedom to get to know the land at your own pleasure. Trust me, I have owned 5 farms and there is nothing like owning your own piece of paradise and spending time there.
