I’m looking to purchase my first hunting farm and was curious if anyone had some tips for a first time buyer. What do you guys look for and how do you prepare financially as far as securing a loan seeing as they come and go so fast? Some things I’ve looked at are quality of animals (previous management/pressure), crop returns, timber value (not a big concern), field locations (fields viewable to road hunters), neighbors parcel size (surrounding pressure). Home base will be north of Liberty. I’ve been looking at stuff from central Missouri around Truman vs Bethany and north to IOWA. I can get closer to 100 acres further south vs up north. Work is only 3 days a week so I don’t care if it’s 2.5hrs I’ll park the camper or build a cabin. I want to buy in the next year just so much to think about I don’t want to jump into something too quick. Thanks and sorry for rambling just want to make a solid decision.
