    I heard that they had their own banking and credit system.

    Yes, they operate like the Indians that are taking over the quick marts and motels do....they bank among themselves.

    They use local banks around here for everyday stuff, but if they need something else I heard that they could get it.

    Sure the land is cheap. And everyone around will hunt it each day you aren’t there. That is maybe the worst area you can go for trespassing. But, there can be some big deer killed there.

    I run 11 cameras year round. And only caught trespassers 4 times. None of them were hunting. I do have a pretty good neighbors though. Between the 3 of us, almost 1300 acres and over 50 cameras.

    As mentioned, neighbors are key and my property is away from anyone. I have one trail on the edge of my property that some folks think is part of a public 4 wheeler trail system, which will change. A couple of times horse riders skirted a property line trail. I caught one old time ginsenger on foot who vowed never to return in exchange for not being prosecuted. I have yet to see any hunting trespassers.

    I just sold a piece of land 285 acres and bought a different piece 255 acres that I had my eye on for about 15 years, was closer to where I live and with better deer. I used a realtor who is also a bow hunter to sell the one and I negotiated with the land owner to buy the other. Realtor did a great job for me, I would recommend him to anyone. The buyer of the piece I sold was from Georgia and the realtor found someone local to TKO the land for him (food plots, maintenance etc.) The area I bought in is pretty much north central part of the state along the Ky river, it has hills no mountains. I paid more than I wanted to for it but I am still glad I bought it. 1 neighbor has a ROW thru my my land that he maintains to get to his home. I had a bad neighbor when I bought it but he has since sold and a great young couple bought it. They drive past my cabin every day and keep an eye on it. Land is remote and the drive runs right thru the middle of my place. I have discussed putting up a gate with them and they say they will help. They are great neighbors. I know most of my neighbors, we share trail cam pics and all are letting the deer grow up. 2000 I shot a 162" buck with a bow, I posted a pic of it and all neighbors congratulated me even though they also said that I had shot "their deer". Good neighbors make things better for everyone, I suggest you meet all of your neighbors, the first neighbor I had was never gong to be a good neighbor, he tried to treat my place like it was his, I talked to him about it but he was never going to be a good neighbor. The realtor was Jamie Rogers Full Potential Properties, I highly recommend him for hunting property.

    There is a piece of land down the road from me for sale I thing it is 70-80 acres. It would be on Gullion Branch road in Henry County. Access is a little rough.

    Flat land that can be farmed or soil banked will be high. Good deer land need to be maintained with food crops and fire lane cut.
    Neither will be cheep. I would suggest min of 100 acres if you don't want to worry about your neighbors. Otherwise they will control your deer population
    for you.

    It will be a lot of work with ice storms and wind taking down tree besides just keeping the trails clean of brush.
