3 Things to Consider When You’re Buying Hunting Property in North Florida
Before you start shopping for hunting property for sale in North Florida, consider:
- How “huntable” the land is
- Your ideal location
- What kinds of neighbors you’ll have
Here’s a closer look at each.
#1. How “Huntable” the Land Is
The first (and most obvious) thing to consider is whether the land is good for hunting – most importantly, is there a lot of game to hunt on the land? Do you see signs of wild animals on it? Does it have a thick amount of cover for the hunter and for the game to hide? You’ll also want to ensure the land has ample access to food and water to support continued animal life so you can enjoy hunting on it for years to come. In fact, a good watering source on a neighboring property is just as good, if not better, than being on your own property! If food or water are not adequately found on the land, both can be added but the additional expense needs to be factored into the cost of the purchase. Many pieces of North Florida land would make great hunting properties.
#2. Your Ideal Location
As with all property purchases, location is extremely important. However, the location of a hunting property matters for different reasons – it needs to be located far away from populated areas but close enough for you to get there and enjoy regularly. After all, the perfect land that is 10 hours away might not be the best purchase if you can only get there twice each year. If there will be travel costs (such as motels) for you to use the land for hunting, you’ll need to factor that into your purchase. A good rule is to find something within a 3-hour commute.
#3. What Kinds of Neighbors You’ll Have
Friendly neighbors make life better, but friendly neighbors that also hunt can deplete the wild animals available (especially if they have better aim than you do). If the adjacent properties are used by hunters, introduce yourself to see if there is enough wildlife for everyone to have a successful hunting season.
