 Turkey Hunting

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about where you'll get your turkey this year.  Buying property with turkey hunting land is a great way to assure you'll have a fresh bird in time for the holiday.  These properties provide hunting grounds for many wild animals and have been referred to as "recreational paradises." The National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) provides tips for fall turkey hunting, which include finding wooded areas surrounded by large fields, pastures or clear cuts.  "Birds will use these islands of cover to roost, feed and lounge during the day," explained the NWTF.

They also suggest finding open woods when looking for a good hunting ground because turkeys avoid thick woods where predators can hide out.

This Indiana "Hunter and Wife Retreat" provides a cozy cabin on 24 acres of land with an abundance of wild turkey.  In South Carolina, there is "Great Hunting Land for Sale" just a mile from Myrtle Beach. 

You can find more turkey hunting grounds by entering  "turkey hunting" into the keyword search option under the "search properties" tab.

 Changing Forestland Ownership Study

A report conducted by the Open Space Institute reveals that over the past 20-30 years there have been big changes in land ownership.  Using the Mahoosuc region of Maine and New Hampshire as an example, the study showed the most significant change to be a switch from primarily industrial ownership in the 1980s, to primary ownership by Management Organizations and Real Estate Investment Trusts.  Industrial ownership is now nearly nonexistent, resulting in the concurrent decrease in forestry research and less public access to the land, the report explained.

The study found the short term affects of this shift in ownership to create many challenges.  The most prominent of these issues were: loss of jobs, increased cost of land, managers and owners turning to development to meet their goals, and limited tourism and public access.

 Perfect for Ice Skating

As winter approaches, many of us in the Northern part of the country are looking to get out of the cold. But before jumping at the first flake of snow, why not embrace the winter in a beautiful piece of waterfront property that will soon become an ice skater's dream. Whether you're an experienced skater, or you have never stepped on ice before - a waterfront escape is perfect for winter activities.

The ice can bring many bonding opportunities for families and friends. On, Samuel Mead gave these ideas for making great use of a frozen lake or pond:

Runner Sled Race: One person sits on a sled while their partner pulls them along the ice. The object of the game is to see which team makes it around the designated area the fastest.

Ice Bowling: Fill 10 plastic quart or liter bottles and several gallon jugs with water and set them outside to freeze overnight. To play, set up the frozen quarts or liters as pins, and use the frozen gallon jugs to knock down the "pins."

Broomball: This game is played like hockey, but instead of sticks and a puck, you use brooms and a rubber ball. Set up two pairs of boots as goal posts and start the game with a face-off at center ice.

In Hays, Kansas, you can get "21.55 Acres" that not only offers a gorgeous view, but also an acre of wetland, perfect for ice skating. "10+ Wooded Acres" in Turner, Maine boasts land with total privacy and a large spring that can become a skating pond in the winter. So instead of jumping on a plane and heading south for the winter, lace up those skates and enjoy the earth's natural ice rinks this year.

 We'll be in Florida for N.A.R.!

Brrrrrr....Winter has already shown it's teeth here in New England, but we are headed south next week to sunny Orlando Florida where we'll have a booth at the National Association of Realtors Conference from November 7 to November 10 at the Orange County Convention Center (booth number 3259).
Whether you want to have an in depth, in person talk about land prices or just want to say hi and grab a free keychain, we'll be there for the whole conference when we aren't by the pool. See you there!
