Looking for some hunting land

Recommended Posts

Slenz, you are best to look north than anywhere else for good prices. And land without lakeshore is MUCH cheaper. We have 5 acres with a cabin and a few hundred feet of lakeshore and it is worth more than many 80acre + prime hunting plots. My brother and I do a lot of searching for good deals, so if you give me a price range I could suggest a few places that we have passed on for one reason or another. [email protected]

Well I would like at least 5-10 acres and not too sure on a price. I am new to buying land so am unsure of prices of land.

slenz, You make want to look into leasing from a major lumber company. It's a yearly lease with various sizes available, mostly from about Mille Lacs north. It's relativeley cheap with many sizes available. You get to re-lease from year to year as long as you follow the rules which seem pretty simple. I don't know if I can mention the name here. Let me know if you are interested and I'll figure out a way to let you know.

Does anyone know what the going rate is for hunting land? I'm thinking primarily woods and swamp, without lakeshore. How much does the price vary around the state? I'm most interested in the Alexandria/Sauk Center area and north 40 or 50 miles.

I have 40 acres just outside of talmoon and was told by a local talmoon boy last week that if you have high enough ground to build on they are commanding from $50,000 to $70,000 per 40. seems awful high to me.

Prices are "all over the board". I purchased 4 acres of swampland that I needed for road access, and paid a premium of $20,000. I'm about 8 miles west of st cloud and there's an 80 acre piece for sale, it's currently about 60 acres in crop, and 20 acres in swamp/grass and small pond. It's just been listed by a realtor for $31,000 per acre!!!! Yikes! You have to get away from the metro area to drop the price. A friend of mine purchased 200 acres just south of Avon which is all timber, and swamp and paid $5,000 per acre.

If there are any of you out there who would like to form a hunting club and combine resources to purchase some land in Stearns county (preferrably the eastern 1/2) I'd be interrested. Ideally I'd like a minimum of 80 acres......mostly wooded.

Yea, land can be really expensive. Last year a guy bought a 3 acre plot next to our cabin for 40 grand, and its all hill and swampy shoreline. But if you look at the right areas you can still get some "good" deals. Look way north for cheaper wooded land, anything west or south is gonna get you, or anything near the cities.

5000 GRAND PER ACRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HOLY CR*P!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Man, I thought people were nuts paying $1000 to $1500 per acre up in Ottertail county.
Oh my. I will never be able to buy my own chunk. frown.gif
My dad does own the farm he grew up on, but thats shared with his brother. I was hoping some day to be able to own my own chunk.
I tried approaching the adjacent landowner to my dad about buying a 40 this summer, but no go. dump, if they ever do sell, it will be 10 years from now at $5000 acre. UGH!

Yes land is expensive. Land prices around the Alex- Fergus Falls runs $1,000-$2,000 per acre. Sebeka over to Long Prairie land is a little cheaper $800-1200 per acre for woods/open ground with CRP income. I could keep an eye open for anyone interested or do a search at my site from the home page of FM under Lakes Area Property.

Was lookin at land around the state, and elsewhere, noticed out west in states like montana you can get land if purchased in big acreages for under 100 an acre. Saw one 5,600 acre for under 400,000. Not exactly woods though wink.gif

    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days 
    • A gill getter jig(horizontal) and a "flipper" jig(vertical) are the first two to go on the line for sunfish.   Crappies are kinda my kryptonite, so i usually throw the box at them till something works. I am still a meat fisherman, plastics have been very productive at times however.
    • but ya have yer smurf glass there and it's ready to use too!!!
    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
