The one thing that scares me the most is the price of land rising that much. I been noticing alot of whitetail management land is extremely overpriced compared to other land. People are planting a few food plots and calling it deer hunting paradise and charging sometimes double of what it is actually worth. Or hunters are buying land for a investment and planting foodplots and profiteering off fellow hunters. Last I knew crops where only seasonal. Yes I know there is more to deer management than just only foodplots. But if your buying a piece of land that is qoute on qoute deer management land. Then seller should have a complete census of all deer,harvested deer, reciepts for services enhancing the land, and exstensive trail cam images. I would go as far as hiring a local biologist to see if the land even qualifies as deer management land. But even then 4,000-5,000 a acre doesn't justify profitting off our tradition we have come to love. Only time will tell if we where better off without deer management. Maybe it should be called wallet management instead of deer management in this certain case.
