Slenz, you are best to look north than anywhere else for good prices. And land without lakeshore is MUCH cheaper. We have 5 acres with a cabin and a few hundred feet of lakeshore and it is worth more than many 80acre + prime hunting plots. My brother and I do a lot of searching for good deals, so if you give me a price range I could suggest a few places that we have passed on for one reason or another. [email protected]

Well I would like at least 5-10 acres and not too sure on a price. I am new to buying land so am unsure of prices of land.

slenz, You make want to look into leasing from a major lumber company. It's a yearly lease with various sizes available, mostly from about Mille Lacs north. It's relativeley cheap with many sizes available. You get to re-lease from year to year as long as you follow the rules which seem pretty simple. I don't know if I can mention the name here. Let me know if you are interested and I'll figure out a way to let you know.

Does anyone know what the going rate is for hunting land? I'm thinking primarily woods and swamp, without lakeshore. How much does the price vary around the state? I'm most interested in the Alexandria/Sauk Center area and north 40 or 50 miles.

I have 40 acres just outside of talmoon and was told by a local talmoon boy last week that if you have high enough ground to build on they are commanding from $50,000 to $70,000 per 40. seems awful high to me.

Prices are "all over the board". I purchased 4 acres of swampland that I needed for road access, and paid a premium of $20,000. I'm about 8 miles west of st cloud and there's an 80 acre piece for sale, it's currently about 60 acres in crop, and 20 acres in swamp/grass and small pond. It's just been listed by a realtor for $31,000 per acre!!!! Yikes! You have to get away from the metro area to drop the price. A friend of mine purchased 200 acres just south of Avon which is all timber, and swamp and paid $5,000 per acre.

If there are any of you out there who would like to form a hunting club and combine resources to purchase some land in Stearns county (preferrably the eastern 1/2) I'd be interrested. Ideally I'd like a minimum of 80 acres......mostly wooded.

Yea, land can be really expensive. Last year a guy bought a 3 acre plot next to our cabin for 40 grand, and its all hill and swampy shoreline. But if you look at the right areas you can still get some "good" deals. Look way north for cheaper wooded land, anything west or south is gonna get you, or anything near the cities.

5000 GRAND PER ACRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HOLY CR*P!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Man, I thought people were nuts paying $1000 to $1500 per acre up in Ottertail county.
Oh my. I will never be able to buy my own chunk. frown.gif
My dad does own the farm he grew up on, but thats shared with his brother. I was hoping some day to be able to own my own chunk.
I tried approaching the adjacent landowner to my dad about buying a 40 this summer, but no go. Crap, if they ever do sell, it will be 10 years from now at $5000 acre. UGH!

Yes land is expensive. Land prices around the Alex- Fergus Falls runs $1,000-$2,000 per acre. Sebeka over to Long Prairie land is a little cheaper $800-1200 per acre for woods/open ground with CRP income. I could keep an eye open for anyone interested or do a search at my site from the home page of FM under Lakes Area Property.

Was lookin at land around the state, and elsewhere, noticed out west in states like montana you can get land if purchased in big acreages for under 100 an acre. Saw one 5,600 acre for under 400,000. Not exactly woods though wink.gif

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.
