That's tough. I'm glad that it looks like you have new options now though. I hunt on my own property, but all it would take is for someone to build a house in the right (or wrong) location next to me and I would either have to stop hunting on my own land, or switch to archery. The people who own the property next to mine have had it for 30 years and have never developed it. Someday they will sell it and I'm sure that the new owners would want to build a house. However they have said that I would have first shot at buying it when the time comes. They have also talked about re-zoning it as dedicated forest land. Which would mean no houses allowed, but would greatly depreciate the property value.
