    Seems like this is the only place where I can consistently find land for sale that is in the $800-$1100/per acre range. Curious what anyone knows about this area for deer hunting...

    I'd like to find land around Columbia or between Columbia and St. Louis not far off of 70 but am having little luck finding anything at a decent price.

    As with any other county, it depends on the actual location. Some spots are great, while on others you'd never see a track.

    No offense my friend but that's something you're probably going to have to find out yourself by doing a little leg work.

    Well.. I dont have experience in those areas but I agree with Mike.. need to do some scouting. Inexpensive property is just that.
  7. If i remember right sullivan is in washington county and there are some good deer aroune there just not lots of food sources so supplemental feed would be a must.

    You can't just say buy property in eastern Washington County and you'll be overrun with deer. It can vary significantly from one farm to the next, because of so many variables. Find a property in your price range, make sure you like the looks of it, then get permission to scout it out.

    Washington county is 10 minutes from my house. Food source is the biggest problem. Several small (1/2- 1 acre) food plots down there, but it's the bigger food plots (5-10 acres) that are bringing in the deer. You will be more and likely running off trespassers the first year or two.
