We offer this prime 158 acre hunting property in Benoit Township in beautiful Northeastern Ontario.
Located midway between the Town of Matheson, Ontario and Kirkland Lake, Ontario in Benoit Township.
This portion of Benoit Township is AN UNORGANIZED TOWNSHIP.
If you are a serious hunter you will love this property as it abuts Crown land on three sides.
Over 3,500 acres of Crown land abuts this property to the north.
Over 3,200 acres of Crown land abuts this property to the south.
Over 3,200 acres of Crown land abuts this property to the east.
THAT IS A LOT OF CROWN LAND THAT YOU CAN EXPLORE and HUNT ON.
A review of the property patent reveals that this property comes with the following rights:
SURFACE RIGHTS COME WITH THE PROPERTY
MINERAL RIGHTS COME WITH THE PROPERTY
TREE RIGHTS COME WITH THE PROPERTY other than the pine trees that are reserved to the Crown.
The mature timber was harvested about 10 years ago and the new growth is coming up well and is attracting the big game.
The new growth is now 10 to 18 feet tall plus whatever was not big enough to harvest 10 years ago is now 10 years older and taller.
CREEK and PONDS
There are a couple of creeks that flow within the property and some beaver ponds along the creeks.
The creeks appear to be seasonal and their size depends on the spring melt of snow and spring rains.
The number of ponds and their size depends on how industrious the local beavers are throughout the spring and fall.
Whatever the size of the creeks and ponds , they always tend to attract the local game.
The majority of the property is nice and high and dry.
The southwest corner is a little wet.
ACCESS TO THE PROPERTY
You can get to this property in two ways.
Both ways will require you to drive a truck for a certain distance and then use an ATV or an ARGO for the rest of the way to the property.
We will refer to these two ways as the access to The north section of the property and as access to The south section of the property.
Either way will require a combination of driving a truck and then ATV or ARGO
Access to the property at the present time is by truck and then ATV or ARGO.
If you check the aerial maps you will see the road to the property is visible but there are two spots that need to be worked on and if you repair those two locations you could drive right to the southern portion of the property.
Access to The north section
This way to get to the property may require you to place your truck into 4 wheel drive for the last 1.6 kilometers of drivable section and then parking your truck and getting onto the old former road/trail through Crown Land for 1.14 kilometers to the north part of the property.
This old road/trail is most likely grown in by now and there may be sections where trees have fallen across the road/trail so make sure to bring a chainsaw and a brush saw.
With some sweat you could probably improve the old road/trail somewhat to get your ATV or ARGO or even your truck to the north section of the property.
Access to The south section
This way to get to the property is perhaps a little bit shorter.
You can drive your vehicle all the way to where you park and then use your ATV or ARGO to get to the property.
We recommend using an ARGO as it is amphibious and can easily cross beaver ponds and areas where portions of the old road may be under a couple of feet of water due to beavers damming a creek.
From where you would park your vehicle you would use an ARGO for about 1 kilometer to where you can be at the property.
