5 Impressive Hunting Properties You Should Be Looking At
by Caroline Kirby
There comes a point in every hunter’s life where hunting other people’s land or even public property gets old. If you’re an avid hunter and practice year after year, investing in a piece of hunting land may be a great idea.
Buying your own hunting land gives you a lot of freedom; the freedom to manage the land as you please and monitor who can use the land. In addition to the freedom of hunting season planning, you can even enjoy your land in the off-season through camping, hiking, and family excursions.
Before diving into some of our favorite properties We want to point out three important aspects you should consider before purchasing any property for hunting.
- Land: This is simple. You’ll want to find a property that’s far enough out of the city, but not so far that traveling becomes a hassle. Trips less than 3 hours are ideal as your travel costs will remain low and allow you to enjoy your land often. Another aspect to consider is the proximity to a hotel or motel in case of a long hunting day or weekend where you’d like a place nearby to rest.
- Food: What kinds of trees and plants are on the property? Familiarize yourself with the diet of the different animals you plan to hunt. Apart from the native plants what other food sources are there? Is there good space to add in your own food plot? What’s the point of getting land if there aren’t viable food sources for the animal you intend to hunt.
- Neighboring Property: Introduce yourself to property neighbors or ask the seller beforehand about the neighbors’ habits, if they hunt, and what do they hunt with (perhaps bow and rifle?). Is there public land nearby? Consider each of these aspects and how the answers would affect your own hunting.
