In the market for an affordable piece of hunting ground. Lots of opportunity on this 40 wooded acres in eastern Gratiot County. Property has a good mix of red, white, and pin oak, maples, poplars, and some pine. Plenty of acorns to feed the wildlife. Plenty of nice trees for your tree stands. Good population of deer, turkey and squirrels. There is a 12 x 12 wooden shed on the property that with a little clean up, could make a usable hunting camp. Located next to the shed is an approximate 24 x 30 cement foundation. May be possible to use the existing foundation for further building opportunities, pole barn, garage etc.
Seller has enrolled the property in the Qualified Forest Program, and receives a significant reduction in property taxes. New buyer to assume the program. Part of the management program for the property called for some cutting to be done. December 2017 seller had an area of about 9 acres clear cut in middle of property. This open area has allowed in much more sunlight, and lots of green vegetation. The area has already become a hit with the local deer herd as a spot for grazing on the new growth, and as it thickens up will likely become a favored bedding area as well. The neat thing about the cutting location is that it is surrounded by a forest of oak trees, and a small pond. Nice set up for both deer and hunters.
