That is a great idea to look for a home with property that I could hunt and fish close by either of your own or public access. Like you, I couldn’t stand to live in town unless I absolutely had to, but that’s why I commute over a hundred miles a day. It is a real blessing to be able to target shoot in the backyard and start hunting as soon as you step out the door. Congratulations on the good score!
The place sounds great! I just made an offer on another 2 acres across the road from my place, but they are asking $3,500 per acre and I don’t think it is worth half of that for land that I just want to keep vacant. So far they have dropped their price by $1,100, but the $5,900 for just two vacant acres is still more than double what I am willing to pay for them. $102,000 for your place including the house is not bad at all! You made a smart move to make an offer lower than what they were asking for. Congratulations!
Congratulations on what looks like a great piece of property and house. I don't know your area but that seems like an incredible price for nearly anywhere. That graph shows you saved a fortune over just a few years ago. Over here wher I live even with the economy you would pay that in a trailer park and still not even own the land. Space rent alone for some of my friends is over 600 per month now. You did really well and should be set for a long time and when the econemy picks up andyou ever decide to move should make out really well.
I was hoping you were on this side of the state when I first read this but that's almost 12 hours away from my side of Colorado. Hopefully your move goes well and you get the help you need with heavy stuff.
I've got the signed final contract for the house. now all that's left is the loan paper finalization and hopefully i'll be moving in to the place in a few weeks. if my phone would start working better, that'd be a plus too. since all of the stuff imve ben checking out on the forum is on my mobile. now imve got tons of work to do, not to mention starting to pack. good luck out there guys, i won't get out until trapping season now. ew weeks.
Out here in Colorado, and in the units that I haunt, it is a tricky game to figure out how far to pack in on a rifle hunt. You want to get away from the masses that have moved game away from the roads but might want to stay close enough that you are taking advantage of the animals forced movements. There is no universal distance but I like the 1.5 to 4 mile range for day hunts where I am not planning on bivying out. This keeps you in that productive buffer zone where the animals are really...
