Rural land: Buy it if you can while you can

Not too many people are in a position to become landowners of recreational ground, which is one of the reasons KWF believes so strongly in the state’s being able to buy land for public wildlife management.

However, if you are thinking about buying some ground to hunt on, the old rule of real estate is still true: the time to buy is now. That’s particularly true of farm ground, as this article from the Financial Times shows: rural property values are climbing fast.

What’s driving this explosion? A combination of factors, but urban sprawl pushes up value, as does the need for recreational property, as does a recent wave of good crop prices.

Land doesn’t usually get cheaper after gets more expensive, so if you have your eye on something, now may be the time.

And if you can’t buy something of your own, there’s one thing you must do: call your state legislator, and ask that he or she back the purchase of wildlife management areas. If you don’t know who your legislators are, call us at the KWF office, and we’ll fill you in.
