I want to build on one of my tracts someday, but wont be building on my main 107 acre tract or 55 acre tract. Probably buy just enough to qualify for greenbelt to build on and focus more on farming, orchard and recreation than hunting.

I never thought about there being a negative except for the obvious potential to spook deer by being there all the time. The amount of impact living on your hunting land makes depends on how your property is laid out and how far your house is from the areas you actually hunt I suppose. Mine is set up well for that as the house is well away from the main wooded areas and it's 237 acrs so big enough to have some distance between the deer's core area and myself. To me it makes it more exciting living there because of all the year round fun yu can have with food plots, tree planting, deer observations, etc.

I live on my 128-acre farm. I absolutely love it! We usually enjoy daily visits from deer and turkey. I also have more time for improvement tasks. I can literally walk out my door and be on stand in a few minutes. This lets me sleep a little longer. :o)

I think there is something satisfying about hunting the land you own and live upon. In all my life I have never hunted any other way. When I was a kid I hunted on my father's farm. For about twenty years I didn't hunt at all. Then I started buying land and hunting some again.

I have lived on the property that I hunted on for the last 25 years. My desire to hunt for myself has bottomed out, maybe because so much of my life revolves around hunting and wildlife management that I get enough of it through contact with others and there is always so much to do. When managing public land years ago, nearly everyone that I had any contact with was a hunter and was either hunting or talking about it. By the end of season I had all that I wanted and was ready to hear about anything other than deer. When in my teens and twenties, if anyone had ever told me that I would slow down hunting, I would not have believed them. However when I go hunting off the farm, I have an altogether different attitude, hunting is why I am wherever I am at so hunting is what I am all about.

I live on the main 300 acres that I hunt. Being here, and seeing the deer everyday only help me to pattern them. There are groups of deer that I leave alone because they stay close to the house and aren't afraid of human presence. The rest are fair game. I love it. Part of managing a property for wildlife is enjoying watching them on a daily basis and seeing them thrive.
