BUYING LAND?

3 posts in this topic

AFTER THIS WEEKEND OF DEER HUNTING, I'VE CAME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THE LAND WE HUNT COULD USE SOME WORK. LIKE ALOT OF TREES!! THE LAND MY FAMILY HUNTS IS OWNED BY SOMEONE ELSE AND WE JUST MANAGE IT FOR HIM, BUT I HATE TO PUT MONEY IN FOR DEVELOPMENT IF I DONT OWN IT. I WOULD LOVE TO BUY IT BUT MY POCKET BOOK IS A LITTLE SHORT. BOTTOM LINE QUESTION, IS THERE ANY TYPE OF GOVERMENT HELP OR SPECIALIZED BROKERS THAT HELP OUT PEOPLE BUYING HUNTING LAND. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT.

Millertime,

There are brokers out there that can help. I'm a residential broker, but we don't really have many lenders that we work with that deal with land. I have seen some in the outdoor news. I'll see what I can some of my referal partners have. Another option would be a contract for deed. You wouldn't have to deal with approvals as its based more on your relationship with the owner.

If you have control over the land and just want to improve it start with your local Soil and Water Conservation District, there are lots of programs that may help

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
