Hunting Land For Sale In Michigan
The details really matter on this approximate 88 acre parcel in Kalkaska County. The seller bought this property in approximately 2009 and immediately went to work on the wildlife habitat. In 2009, 25 acres of hardwoods had a timber stand improvement conducted. In 2010 they planted 10 acres with 10,000 red pines to create thermal cover for the wildlife. Those trees are thriving and are creating a great sanctuary for the deer. In approx. 18 years the seller says these trees will be ready for harvest at an approx. price of $10 per tree or $100,000.00. They planted an additional 18 acres to a mix of 5,000 pines and 5,000 hardwood trees, and 2,000 wildlife bushes for additional cover and food sources. In 2012 they established 5 acres of food plots. In 2018 they dug a small pond and went 100% no till for their food plots. The property is enrolled in the Qualified Forest Program and is a certified tree farm and has a current management plan in place. The parcel for sale is an 80 acre piece and an additional 8+/- acre piece running north from the 80, its depicted in the aerial with a red/white dotted line, the 80 is a solid red line.
Here is what I love about this piece of hunting land for sale in Michigan
The diversity of wildlife habitat on a northern Michigan property such as this is pretty rare. Food plots, wildlife fruit/nut producing trees and shrubs, pine tree plantings for thermal cover and screening from the road and neighbors, and a small pond/water hole make up the diversity. Their is a small kill food plot within one of the pine tree plantings. The new owner could add some switchgrass to divide up the large destination food plot, he could also add a couple water holes. Some timber stand improvement could be done to thicken up the hardwoods, its currently pretty open as the owner chooses to be able to walk through it with his dogs rather than have it for dense cover for wildlife. The neighboring property to the west is a school that does not allow hunting on their approx. 80 acres giving you a nice sanctuary for the wildlife. The rolling terrain/ridges give this property a true up north feel.
