    How many of you guys/girls on here are actually in the hunt to purchase hunting/farmland? I am trying to gauge the level of interest on this forum and if people are just observers or actual buyers.
    And what is it that you guys are looking for? Land up north, under $2000 per acre? Farmland in southern MI under $6000 per acre? Please tell me about your guys situations. It helps me as a land specialist to know what guys are looking for, and wanting/willing to pay. There is always a struggle when trying to price property for sale and meeting the needs of a seller, being inline and agreeing with an appraisal (that a bank will use for lending purposes) and being at a price that buyers will also agree upon.

    2K per acre might be tricky.

    I’ve been actively looking for land in the SC part of the state but the possibility of CWD has changed where I was looking and definitely impacted what I would be willing to pay.

    Out of state may become a reality with another property closer to the tip of the Mitt.

    I know that I'm watching to see what happens with deer hunting land values in the CWD area of Kent & Montcalm Counties.

    I along with a few friends are looking for hunting land around Central-Southern Michigan. Preferably Ionia or Montcalm Counties. However prices are so high currently (which I know you cannot prevent). I am looking for a mixture of Swamp, woods, tillable land, but not all are mandatory. I would be willing to pay $3000-3500/ acre but this $4000-$6000/ acre is just crazy in my opinion. Like Live and Onions said above, I am hoping price in the CWD area drop, I would be willing to gamble in that area.

    $2000/acre is very realistic in Clare or Gladwin county, even less if you go North. South of MtPleasant is a different story.

    You are NW of Mt. Pleasant and there isn't decent looking deer dirt around 2K per acre for an 80 ? I would consider looking at 2 40s a ways apart. The Mecosta CWD positive was removed from the list, but still next door to Isabella and Mecosta.

    South of Mt P is different because more ground is ag ground which commands a higher price. Sure, prices in Clare county have moderated some but that is only because nobody struck gold. And for hunting, not every chunk of ground makes for good deer habitat and most guys that spend the money want to be able to hold deer on their ground rather than pass shoot.

    Price is the issue I am having. It seems a little north of me, in the Clare/Gladwin county areas there is land to be had dirt cheap, less than $2000 an acre, and in fairly large parcels. My family owns some up there.

    Around home is a different story. I live in Clinton county, and it amazes me the parcels for sale for $4000, $5000, on up an acre. And I'm talking mostly wooded! Occasionally stumble across a mostly wooded 20 acre parcel for somewhere in the region of $150,000! Yes, I've seen them for 7 or 8 thousand an acre also. I realize Clinton county is considered the farming capital of Michigan and tillable acreage is as inflated here as it's ever been, so maybe that drives the wooded acreage up?

    I'd love to be able to drive from my house and back to hunt, but at these prices it sadly doesn't seem possible. Might have to settle for an up north property and keep being a weekend warrior.

    But, the land around here continues to be priced sky high, so that must mean people are purchasing it. Why wouldn't sellers continue pricing high?

    The price of the land you are looking for may be impacted by grain prices. Favorable grain sales a few years ago made farming profitable, and land values and rent increased. Things are not as good now.
