Hunting Land - worth
hunters, hunting land takes on great importance, and
understandably so. It
needs to be
adequately stocked with animals for hunting, has to have enough
food for the animals, while giving them enough land to live on
comfortably, and with suitable habitat for them to thrive in.
This can automatically put a lot of land as unsuitable for
are you looking for hunting land? Is it so you can start your
own hunting club, or do you just want land for you and a few
friends to hunt? Do you want to lease land, or are you wanting
to purchase hunting land? Are you looking for a partner too so
it's a joint venture where you both take equal risk? As you can
see there are quite a few options available so you need to
decide which path you are going to take first, before you start
looking at hunting land.
are considering starting a hunting club, then presumably you
will charge for annual memberships, and that money will help to
pay for the land, or its upkeep. How many members do you think
you can sign up? Are there a lot of people in your area? How
much will they be willing to pay? how much will the upkeep
cost? And the questions go on.
Next you need to decide on the
location. Are you looking for land to hunt on in a particular
area, or are you prepared to travel to where ever it is? How
far would be too far? These are all questions that you need to
at least have some idea about the answer before you commit to
hunting land purchase or lease.
Ok, so is
it better to lease or own hunting land? Obviously to some
extent it depends whether you are financially able to purchase
hunting land in the first place.
want your own land, where do you start? First of all you should
check out other hunting clubs in the area you are interested
in, as they may have land they are wanting to sell. If the land
has already been used for hunting, you need to check carefully
to see whether the stocks are still strong, or whether their
deletion is causing the club to sell the land. If it is
depleted, it will mean that you have to wait a few seasons
before resuming hunting there, and that might not be what you
want to do. On the other hand if you point this out to the
seller, you may get a much better deal on the
consideration might be to take a look at land that is not
currently designated as hunting land. If the owner isn't
considering selling, he either may sell a portion of his land
for hunting, or may let you lease some of his land for your
hunting purposes. But first you need to get an idea of how the
hunting would be on that land.
whether there has been any hunting in close by woods. Check the
harvest from these areas, if there has been hunting there
already, to see what the potential is likely to be for the land
that interests you.
A lot of
this research applies to leased hunting land too, and in
addition, you need to check that the lease does not have any
terms in it that are not appropriate for you and your plans.
Read the small print carefully. In fact, whether you go for
leased hunting land, or you purchase your own hunting land,
make sure you do the background checks thoroughly, after making
sure your business plan is sound too.
