Well, after leasing for nearly 20 years I've bought my first hunting land. Just under 50 acres along the middle fork of the Forked Deer River.

Good deer sign, found some turkey sign, and several ducks currently using the duck hole.

It's going to take a little work this summer to get it like I want it, but I'm excited about hunting my own spot.

Ive been looking for some land on the river in that area. I sure wish I could find some swamp ground on the Forked Deer river.

Congrats! I recently did the same thing. I started working on it as soon as deer season ended.

It is exciting and nice knowing you don;t need permission.

The property I bought is swamp land. Got to get a blind built this summer, and clear for food plots, and build stands, and...well you get the picture. Ha.

I may be brown nosing when I need that big Kubota pushing through a briar thicket axle deep in mud.

You know, some are getting worried about that big growth that you have developed lately, the one hanging off your back side. That would be me,hanging out from my shoulders down to my feet.

If you ever do need some kind of help I don't live but a few miles away. I'm not looking for a place to hunt. Just saying if you need a hand or get your truck stuck or something know you got some help hear by.

Careful, I could be knocking on your door with a kind gesture like this!

It feels good to be wanted.

Congratulations - there's nothing line owning your own land to hunt on. It lets you participate in hunting at a whole different level. I bet you'll find habitat development even more fun than the actual hunting.
