I just purchased a new farm this year in south central. The thing about Amish as well is they kill everything. Or the ones in my area do. An I know several groups. When I look at land I want it to be atleast a couple miles from there land. Because they for real will put a hurt on the deer. Turkeys too but mainly deer. An I have found that even in my low cost area if you find a farm under 4k dollers a acre and you want it you better buy it. It took me 15 years to come across some land near my house and it never hit the market. I bought it straight from the land owner. So unless you want to pay realtor fees and etc it might be best to talk to the local land owners of the area you want to buy and see if they may want to sell etc. Could save you tens of thousands in the long run. An like others have said it will be hard to manage land if you dont live near by. 1. People will find out you arent there and they will trespass. 2. It will be hard to keep things mowed off and etc if your not there. If you insist on finding land and living out of state I would try to find a good local farmer who lives near by and pay or ask him to look over it and keep it mowed etc. Hope this helps some. An some counties in KY have free PVA websites and you can search the county maps an determine who owns what etc. Not all counties do but some do. Mine does. I can pick any farm in my county and it tells me who owns it and what they paid and when. I prolly shouldnt tell people these things but in todays world us hunters need to stick together. I could care less if your out of state or next door as long as you are good folks.
