I've been wanting/thinking about trying to get a small piece of property for two primary purposes. First a post retirement place to go hang out and second to be able to hunt on or have good hunting in a short walk or drive. Last week my buddy in the UP of Michigan said he found a 12 ac property with a 4 year old 2 bedroom camp. Seems that the guy built it and stayed 1 weekend and hasn't been back. In fact he pays a local to clean it a few times throughout the year. The good thing is it sets smack center of the migration run for deer and has good roads in. The best thing is it has a good bit of river frontage, with nice trout populations. Also, it is surrounded by state land. I haven't got any pictures yet. Asking price 40K. I really wanted more property like 30-40 ac and then build a small camp. So right now waiting for more info and see. The property would be 9 hours from my home here in Ohio but in retirement time is of no concern. Any thoughts???? When I get pictures I'll post them.

HM is it legal to hunt that state land?
doesn't sound that bad if you can & if the state land is a good chunk of land

It's all huntable. Lots of hunters in that area especially rifle and late ml hunters that travel the migration routes.

Well I guess for me it would depend on how easily it is for other hunters to access the state land that surrounds that camp if you are going to have a ton of hunters hunting close to you I would really have to think hard about it

ya that's it! For 10 months peace and quiet then 2 months of not knowing what's going on when I'm not there. Lots of Michigan road hunters still in the UP. I will be doing a lot of thinking and no quick decisions.

sounds like a great deal but like you I would spend a lot of time thinking it over.

Or two months of having your dog shot at by idiot hunters, your property tramped across, or perhaps your camp broken into.
I would hope to find a property surrounded by private land.In the best case you can have an agreement with your neighbors.

all good thoughts!!!

Is the property "enclosed" by State lands, or is there the opportunity to buy more land and expand? 12 acres gets small real quick.
