    Was hunting Logan but gave up my lease last year. It was 10 1/2 hours at best sometimes more. I40 traffic in NC sucks sometimes.

    I am co owner of a piece of property in East Central Ky. 95+/- acres. Approx 27 tillable acre, remaining hardwoods, double wide home in very good shape, city water,septic, 40x80’ Amish built metal pole barn that we may be listing in near future. I’m wondering what the value would be? I’m out of state but seems prices have gone up substantially as of late.

    No clue, but I'd say you are looking at some capital gain tax liability !!! Not a bad problem to have :) !

    Parts of Shelby and even parts of Henry are nearly as high as Oldham. The best part of Henry for hunting is being bought up by the Amish as I said earlier.

    I know a guy who sold 11 acres in Henry for 70k and that was probably 5-6 years ago. I worked in Shelbyville for 4 years and often looked at land. Very expensive.

    Yea I don't think it makes much sense to pay that kind of price for hunting land.

    Just wanted to say that I really appreciate those that have offered their thoughts. I plan to take my time and try to figure out what makes the most sense. I think the general concensus is to find good neighbors first and good deer next Thanks.

    Ideally, you want to have as few neighbors as possible. Google Earth is your best first visit with the neighbors.

    I use Huntstand. I think they are pretty comparable. On that topic, where I live every county has a GIS mapping site where you can get all the property info you want at no cost. It does not seem nearly as easy in Kentucky, at least for the counties that I have looked at.
