You can have the most awesome piece of ground in the county. Lots of big deer. Great habitat. It doesn’t do you any good if you can’t access it effectively. Thinking about where you’re going to be parking. How your going to get back to those stand locations, those fields, those food plots you’re creating. If you’re walking through where all the deer are bedding to get to your hunting areas, its very counterproductive. Knowing and seeing if the property has a good trail system, a network of trails, in place or if you can improve it yourself in putting those with some clearing and some mowing and some maintenance.

Forego the emotional attachment of how awesome the place looks and put yourself in the position of you actually trying to get to that stand without alerting that mature buck that’s bedding on these ridges in between. Can you pull it off? If you can’t do that, as bad as you want that piece, if it doesn’t work and you can’t figure out a way to do it effectively, you’ll be frustrated in the long term and almost regretting the decision to buy that particular property.
