Hope it's in Ag exemption, you will save a bundle on taxes. If its not you need to start working on that, it takes a while. Congrats looks great.

It was originally part of a 60 acre parcel that is being divided into 10 acre+ tracts. It has been in current Ag exemption status for more than 5 years under hay production and my plans (and the neighbors from what I gather) are to apply and maintain that tax exemption. We have been in contact with the farmer leasing the property and he has agreed to cut, rake and bale on it as long as we install cross fence gates for him to have easier access to each parcel. Otherwise, he would have to gain access to each individual tract via the fronting county road.



Thanks everyone for the congrats and attaboys. My mind is racing and on overload thinking of all the work that needs to be done.

How did that work on craigslist? Did you get to pay with cashiers check and offer more money for them to hold it for you? I've thought of listing my land there but I'm afraid of all the scammers that would be calling.

Default We finally closed on the new property and couldnít be happier!!

Well the inaugural first wetting of the hooks took place on the new property today. Me, my son and grandson didnít even get out there until almost noon but had a blast.
This tank appears to be full of nice young bass. Caught about 16-17 total over a couple of hours. The best was probably around 3.5#.
Beetle Spins seemed to be the trick!

This is what itís all about my friends.
