ABOUT THIS PROPERTY
This is a nice hunting property that you can go to yuear after year.
You can drive to this property in the non-winter months and then snowmobile to it in the winter months.
The road is a seasonal road that was created many years ago by both timber companies and mining companies.
This is not a township maintained road but it is used by mining companies and timber companies and hunters to get to the Crown lands to the north.
This road splits the property so that there is about 2 acres on the north side of the road and about 31.8 acres on the south side of the road.
The trees on the property are about 20-30 years old and vary in height from 25 to 5o feet high.
There are two ponds in the southeast section of the property and one is fairly large , about ¾ of an acre in size.
The waterfowl like to land on these ponds so if you hunt geese and ducks then you may get lucky.
The ponds also attract the moose and the small game.
There is a good mix of trees on the property, some Spruce trees, some Poplar trees and some Birch trees.
A lot of these trees are big enough to accommodate tree stands for the hunters.
If you want to build your hunt camp then there are plenty of building spots to build on, just pick your spot.
Crown Land abuts this property to the west and to the south.
A quick look shows about a 1,000 acres of Crown Land that you can access from this property.

THE BENEFITS OF OWNING A RECREATIONAL PROPERTY
Most often recreational land is a “hands-off” investment.
You don’t have to deal with tenants, lawn-care, leaking roofs, bursting pipes, or anything else that doesn’t directly benefit what you’ll be using the land for.
If you want to use your land for hunting or camping, then you’ll only maintain it to the extent that you need it to be maintained.
Recreational land is used for camping, fishing, hunting, ATVing, hiking, and other activities that get you outside and into nature.
If these are some of your favorite activities, then purchasing recreational land will give you the opportunity to participate whenever you want.
Getting out in nature also makes you happier and healthier.
Land is always a valuable investment because it is an essential natural resource that there will never be any more of.
While most people don’t think of vacant land this way, it’s true that land is extremely valuable because there are limited quantities available.
It’s not like you can just “grow” more land.
It’s a finite asset that others will want when there isn’t any more available to buy.
So, by purchasing it, you’re putting yourself in a position that is advantageous long-term.
You’ll not only purchase something that you’ll love and use as a source of entertainment, but you’ll also hold it as an investment for a long period.
Most people with families want one central place that their family can gather in the great outdoors.
If your family loves to congregate and enjoy nature, then recreational land is a fabulous way to do that.
You can unplug, slow down, and spend time with one another without any distractions.
