Timber Rights & why they matter when buying land

We’ll start off the week with a loaded one but an important one. Over the years I’ve listened to a lot of people tell me about their efforts to buy land in NY and have run into a timber rights situation and don’t know what  it means or what to do. This is important , real important and you must know this before you ever sign a contract to buy land in New York or anywhere for that matter. This isn’t real complicated , but it’s expensive if you aren’t paying attention or if you’re dealing with a used car salesman who happens to be good at convincing you to do something you shouldn’t. So let’s cover it so mistakes aren’t made ……..

Buying Deer Hunting Land in NY

This is one I could literally write all day about. Several years ago I went back and looked at info I had gathered from customers and those who contacted me that were interested in buying land.

Having spent years buying and selling land in and out of the Adirondack Park I’m sure I can give you a little insight about property values and stability of investment. For comparative purposes we’re looking at property outside of the Park being the Tug Hill area , St Lawrence River region etc. I’m not talking about the southern tier because there is no comparison between the 2.

Deer Fly Patches product endorsement ! … this is serious

Sometimes when a product works so good I have to tell people about it. This is one of those instances and I’ll be brief , right to the point.

Any of you who spend time in the woods during the summer months have had to tolerate deer flies. They’re brutal . I look at them as Mother Nature’s drones that are loaded with hellfire missiles and ready to strike at any moment. They rarely miss. Several years ago my good buddy Mike Miller ( he works here ) gave me some of these deer fly patch things. I’m figuring this is a gimmick that will catch nothing but laughs. I was wrong , these things are the best invention since the TV.
