Have you ever thought of buying hunting land? What are some reasons to consider owning your own hunting land?
Finding a Great Area
Say you’d like to start small… you could buy yourself a small tract of land for hunting. If you do that, try and find a spot that adjoins a larger parcel owned and managed by someone else. This way you have the benefits of a “backup habitat” nearby. You and your new neighbor might be like-minded. Perhaps you can get along so well that you enjoy hunting on each other’s property. Or the neighbor uses their land for growing timber, and doesn’t allow people to hunt on it. Well, having timber nearby adds to the quality and value of your tract, so that’s a good thing, too.
Sometimes you can buy yourself some hunting land and then discover the neighbor is willing to lease adjoining acres, which is nice if you want to extend your hunting acreage at certain times. There’s also the chance you could buy (rather than lease) adjoining land in the years to come. As you get to know your neighbor, and build trust with him or her, this can help foster not only a new friendship, but also a good land deal in the future if he or she decides to sell.
Enjoying Nature and the Outdoors Year-Round
Buying hunting land is a good way to enjoy nature year-round. During different seasons, the land offers different opportunities. Of course there’s the hunting aspect, but what about a chance just to hike the land, or plant some vegetables on it, or cut down some trees for firewood? At certain times of the year, you could use the land for other things, such as fishing in the pond, camping in the woods, building a tree fort for the kids, setting up deer stands, etc.
A Prudent Investment
Think of hunting land as an investment. You’re investing in your own personal joy! A hunter with their own land to hunt on? That’s a great feeling! There’s a sense of freedom on your own land. And, if you want to, you can offer your land to other hunters to hunt on, for free or a fee. Your land could become a source of revenue if you so choose. Some people turn part of their hunting land into training grounds for dry fire drilling or other income-producing opportunities. If your hunting land is profitable, you can use earned income to further invest in it, perhaps building a new road, a lodge, and/or buying new animals to add into the mix of the animals already living there. In a way, you’re managing the ecosystem. You can choose to trim thick bushes or cut down trees as needed. It’s your land to work with/on, and that alone can be a fun and challenging project.
Your Property, Your Rules!
Perhaps one of the best benefits of owning your own hunting land is that you, for the most part, make the rules. If you were to hunt elsewhere, you’d have to follow “their rules.” You’d have to pay them fees, and hunt when “they say so.” With your own land, though, you can access your property when you want to, and you don’t have many rules and restrictions like you might have elsewhere.
A Future Tangible Asset
What if you buy land in an area that’s becoming popular? Then it becomes a tangible asset that appreciates, and you can prime your hunting land for a future sale. There’s always the chance that suburbia encroaches on land, and suddenly a rural area is turned into suburbia in a couple years. Then, if you want, the land you own shoots up in price seemingly overnight and you could sell it.
Raw land has potential. It could have oil underneath or certain minerals. It could be the kind of area that, in 30 years, becomes a neighborhood of homes. Or it could be full of all sorts of birds and animals, with so many to choose from that there’s not enough time to hunt them all. Hunting land can also be land used for timber mining, farming, solar farms, etc. Raw land can end up paying dividends, which is a nice bonus if you just bought it to hunt!
