You are a wise man, planning for the generations in your family to have a place of your own to hunt is great news for you. Looks like lots of trees, and maybe a creek or drainage in SW (?) corner with all the curvy property lines. Good luck!

Congrats. Looks really thick. Do you plan to open it up any? There is government assistance for more things than you think. I bought a similar piece of property a couple of years ago and getting help paying for improvements is nice.

Congratulations Sir!

Just speaking from my short experience with an easement. Make sure you establish an entry and exit. I have multiple easements into my property and am having problems with a neighbor.

He thinks because I haven’t been using an easement that I no longer have access through it. It’s been a bit of a headache.

Got it DUN Friday afternoon.
Went and walked it a little after dinner on fathers day.
Got home and found 5 very small ticks on me. Guess we are going to have to spray down till we get some clearing done. Super excited though.

So I found a guy, he will be coming out monday the 17th to clear the underbrush and saplings on 10 acres to start. I will get some more pics soon. I told him 5" and below to be mulched, and a 15' wide track on the north side to access the west side.

Glad you did not seem to have much trouble with Laura.

Place is looking good and the critters should like the regrowth after the mulching.
