Visiting a Property in Person is Important

Going online is certainly important when buying recreational land for sale, whether it’s reviewing photos of the site, looking into nearby spots for outdoor activities like fishing, hiking or boating, or learning more about the wildlife in the area.

But it’s still important to visit a property before you make an offer, unless you’re a neighbor or already know the property well. The key in making a successful purchase is being confident that the land is a good match with your objectives, which means you should see it.

It’s never too soon to buy your own hunting property!

It can be a challenge to find a hunting spot where you have some room to roam without other hunters all around you. One solution, of course, is to buy your own recreational property.

In a recent story in Bowhunter magazine, author Tony Peterson talks about how he has long believed that it’s never too soon to have a hunting property to call your own.

“I look at buying hunting land like getting in shape or going on that once-in-a-lifetime elk hunt,” he writes. “We all talk a big game, but most of us will never do any of them even though we could probably do all of them somehow. The first step is to get over our mental hangups about each and then make a plan. After that, it’s a matter of sticking to it, which without doubt, is the difficult part.”

Peterson, who hunts in Minnesota and Wisconsin, bought his first hunting property at age 31 – a Wisconsin property that was a bit out of the way and certainly not a prime hunting spot. But it was a start, and he has since bought two other properties to have his own private places to hunt.

The recreational land sales experts in the PotlatchDeltic Preferred Broker network are seeing more and more younger buyers like Peterson – outdoor enthusiasts who want a spot for their kids to enjoy and to use as a getaway with their hunting pals.

PotlatchDeltic sells land in a variety of shapes and sizes, always striving to match the right property with the buyer’s budget. Now is a good time to be looking for a property of your own: After all, hunting season will be here again before you know it.

If you’re interested in buying a recreational property in Minnesota, Idaho, Arkansas, Alabama or Mississippi, PotlatchDeltic’s Preferred Broker Network is the place to start. Call one of our brokers today to get started!

Campfire Safety Common Sense

This is a high-risk time for forest fires, and as we head into the summer, the chance of wildfires in many areas of the country is particularly high due to a lack of rain.

The threat of wildfires has been noted by the National Interagency Fire Center in a number of states around the country.

“Everyone in the woods can do their part by being careful with their campfires,” said Mark Bice, Senior Real Estate and Acquisitions Manager for PotlatchDeltic, who works on company initiatives in the Southeast. “It’s important to pay attention to your fire so it doesn’t create a problem.”

In areas where campfires are permitted, it’s important to follow some common-sense steps as you decide where to put your campfire, build it, and monitor it. A story on the Active.Com website has a list of five things to think about that are worth remembering:

  1. Look up and look around as you pick your campfire site, to make sure there are no bushes or low-hanging branches nearby.
  2. Safety-proof your fire pit with a 5-foot perimeter of dirt around it.
  3. Keep water and a shovel nearby in case you need to react after a wind gust or other unforeseen event causes the fire to spread beyond the pit.
  4. Make sure someone is keeping an eye on the fire at all times.
  5. Put the fire out before you go to sleep, with no exceptions.

“Many safety rules in the woods are just common sense, and with wildfires a major concern, it’s important for people to pay attention to everything they are doing as they camp, hunt or do other activities,” said Jim Lemieux, Senior Manager, Idaho Real Estate for PotlatchDeltic.

Taking care of the land is a top priority for PotlatchDeltic, which is reflected by the quality of the recreational properties we sell. If you are interested in buying a recreational property in Minnesota, Idaho, Arkansas, Alabama or Mississippi, PotlatchDeltic’s Preferred Broker Network is the place to start.

Avoid these common mistakes as you plant food plots

Planting a food plot to attract wildlife to your hunting property takes careful planning, and the last thing you’ll want is to see the crops fail. In a nutshell, an excellent list of tips on the Deer & Deer Hunting website involves everything from understanding the soil at the food plot’s location, to making sure the site is weed-free, to matching the crops to the soil.

But beyond these crop-specific tips, the list also includes other things to think about. For example, don’t plant the food plot near your property line. Make the project more fun by involving your family in the process. Take the proper steps to protect your crops from wildlife as it starts to grow.

DeerandDeerHunting.com | September 2017

But don’t focus only on keeping your crops protected as they grow. Think about the food plot’s location as a future hunting spot. Install shrub cover around the crops, which will help bucks feel more secure as they visit. Plan the location so you’ll be able to approach the area without wildlife realizing it. And make sure it isn’t in an area where you’ll be staring into the afternoon sun as you approach.

The recreational real estate experts in the PotlatchDeltic Preferred Broker network can help you in picking a property that fits your needs and has strong hunting potential. This summer is an excellent time to buy, so you can be hunting this fall in a spot that’s all your own.
