Re: camp or land for sale
There is a thread here on the forum directing people to view camps and land that other people have found for sale.
Another idea is check with the real estate companies in the area that you're looking for. Get on their mailing list. A simple call to the company,telling them what you want and what you're willing to pay gets you on the email list. They don't make money unless they sell.
The other is what I call "chair time" Getting in your car and driving the backroads in search for that piece of heaven.
I bought my property with it only on the selling block for 3 days.
Finding property that actually adjoins game lands or state property is not an easy find. When you do, it's not cheap. You might want to think about good property within close proximity of hunting lands. Nothing wrong with driving for 10 minutes to a good spot. Besides, if the game your looking for is not there, you're gonna drive anyway.
There are a lot of factors that you need to look at. One is your driving time to the location. Next is access. Not all roads get plowed in the winter. Another is the possibility of creature comforts. As you get older, that hot shower and flush toilet goes a long way, as does with your spouse. Another is cost.
I narrowed my search down to a certain township that I hunted for a number of years and knew the area. It took time and a little luck. And a few extra $$$$ lying around waiting for the right purchase. Land is non renewable, so when the opportunity presents itself, not snooze or you will loose.
