  1. I have bought and sold a quite a few properties over the years and there’s quite a few factors involved in hunting land valuation. Certainly shooting 140” bucks is going to increase your valuation but in no way is it going to double of triple your price per acre. It means something emotional to you, but it doesn’t necessarily equate to huge increases in valuation. Here’s a few things that I’ve experienced: 1.) it’s always about location, location, location in real estate. Land in Wyoming, Ontario, Genesee, Livingston, Wayne, Orleans counties is almost always more expensive then land in Allegheny or Steuben counties as they are closer to Buffalo and/or Rochester and people pay for that convenience 2.)make sure you valuate the timber separately from the land itself. The average house realtor has no idea how to do this. Make sure you use a realtor that has experience valuations these types of things (Future forestry Consulting, Whitetail Properties are a few) 3.) level land is always more valuable then 45 degree hills. Although the hills are great topography for hunting, level land is more valuable for building 4.) Do you have utilities at the street or on property? 5.) Do/will you have deed restrictions or will you limit sub surface or timber rights? 6.) what are the current price per acre properties in your neck of the woods? This can at least give you a starting point. Yours may certainly be worth more but it can at least give you a floor. 7.) what sort of amenities do you have on your property? Orchards, big bucks, food plots , hinge cuts etc etc. these are important to hunters but not necessarily someone who is looking at your land as a future building lot I’d make sure you at least reach out to someone who has experience selling lots like this. As above, I gave you a few names. I’d do your homework and get sale price data on lots around you (keep in mind some of these might be lower than current value if they were arms length transactions or in family transactions - this is often done to keep tax assessments down). Find out what lots are going for. Also, you have a great situation with your neighbor as he is already willing to give you cash. Good luck!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  4. I feel your pain as I own 97 acres and my neighbor 7......he hunts the lines hard. People have every right to hunt right on top of you, as it’s their land. However they do not have a right to trespass. We started off nice where I offered him permission to track deer on my parcel but only if he called me to ask permission. He asked once, but then he started to trespass when I wasn’t there (he was an easy target on my trailcams and twice I followed his blood trails). I told him he could only enter my property with permission and I would accompany him on a tracking job. When he failed to do that and poached a deer and a turkey on my land , the big guns came out. Here’s what I did: 1.) he got two tickets from DEC for trespass. Next time he loses his license 2.) I wrote him letters and sent copies to my local sheriffs office and my DEC officer that states he can never enter my land ever again 3.) the letter was accompanied by all of his pics of illegal entry on my trailcams 4.) if he shots a deer and it runs into my land, I myself will track it after dark and take it to his doorstep to be ethical. 5.) I have a civil lawsuit for $100,000 ready to be filed for any damages sustained if he walks on my land ever again. This is a long shot but legal action can deter a holes Bottom line is we started off nice but he stabbed me in the back. I used the proper channels with DEC and police to enforce my boundaries and his actions have since stopped. He also seems to have started hunting elsewhere.....you have to be firm with folks like this Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Absolutely spectacular!!! Congrats to you and your family on a superb deer! P.S. - I also love your killer, lush food plots!!!!! Stay well Chris
  6. I prosecute with DEC every time. It seems to be working. Also, I have a civil lawsuit ready to be filed on my assjoke neighbor if he trespasses one more time. It’s for $100,000.00. I worked with my attorney on it - proving that his footsteps are destroying future tree saplings that I have planted for my future logging....no more screwing around. If that doesn’t work, I will build a tiny cabin on property line so he cannot hunt just entire land anymore (he will be within 500’ of it) Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  9. I love Costanza's and have never had a problem for the past 17 years since I moved to Ontario. The cheddar slims were perfectly done, just the mild slims were "soft". I could just tell when I picked them up as the casing was lighter pink in color, they were a little bigger and the casings weren't wrinkly like DVD's above pic. They tasted fine, but I just like them a little drier. I'm sure it's simply b/c they didn't dry them out enough.
  10. looks great I just picked up my Costanza's slim stick order yesterday and I was disappointed for the first time ever..... the sticks were undercooked, pale appearing and very wet. Yes, I know I can dry them myself but his quality was lacking this year and I paid 10.00/pound so I shouldn't have to finish them myself
  11. I'm just curious, what primers did you mean to buy? Chris
  12. This is not true - you still need a MZZ tag in order to use the Reg season tag

  16. I agree. I’m curious how the deer do not seem spooked by his presence near the trailcam!!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. I’m curious - and this is not a critique but rather my own curiosity on scent management - but you post a lot of trail cam pics which leads me to believe you are going in the woods to get the SD cards. I am not aware of any Browning cameras that are linked to a cellular service although they do have a model that has a WiFi hot spot feature. Are you concerned about leaving a scent trail and ruining the woods by doing this? I practice low impact hunting myself and I remember you posting about other folks possibly ruining their hunts later in the season by over hunting their spots too early.

  18. Nice deer Dan - you deserve it. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  19. Hey pal - I do not want to destroy this thread as Rob has made it the best on LOU so I'll just move on. I'm glad that you will now have a full belly. Congrats to all that have scored whether bucks or doe. Keep in mind, with a tough early winter and snow pack, the fawns will still go back to mom to nurse. Good luck in the field, Chris
