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

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
