    A lot of good hunting ground in southern Iowa can be had for about half that price. Just an FYI for anyone interested. I happen to live in the same area of the state. A "good offer" would be around $150,000.

    I thought that seemed high also. Iowa ground seems to be slightly cheaper than IL ground.

    considering

    Well considering what our crop ground is bringing around here I figured why not. A peice of land just 2 miles from this three years ago brought $4200 per acre then another 40 acre last month brought $5200 per. Whats land around a big city bringing? Lands land. Dont look down on me for what Iam trying to do. It is recreational ground right. And yes its high but I would rather come down than wish I got more out of it. This is my one and only chance to save my home and the land around it.

    I understand. But recreational ground is just not worth what it was a couple of years ago and there is plenty of it on the market to establish a fair price. You would probably get a lot more interest from buyers if it was priced more accurately. It currently is just not worth anywhere near what crop ground is bringing. If you really want to sell it, price it to sell. Anyone with that kind of money is going to be smart enough to shop the market. I have recently seen some very good hunting ground sell for anywhere from $1,100 to $1,500. Some decent buys right now. Best of luck to you.

    Plenty of crop ground around here bringing those big numbers also. But, not the rough recreational ground. I question anyones thought process that pays over 5K per acre for crop ground. Just does not make much business sense. Especially if grain prices slip and inputs and taxes continue to increase. To me, there are better places to put your money that will make a better return in the long run.

    Hold on to your hats!

    You’re now starting to sound like one of those millionaires that don’t want to pay taxes. Sure don’t want the poor folk getting ahead there won’t be any servant’s then. Land prices are what they are but you sure are beating us back down just as there maybe a little hope for getting out of debt. If people Liston to you there won’t be anything moving in this already tough market.

    Your post in reference to me makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Kind of like the price you are asking for ground.

    If the market is already tough, why would you ask an inflated price?? I think your battle is with yourself. Not me. Also, I dont know too many poor folk servants that own 80 acres of hunting ground.

    My friends dad bought 80 acres in Mahaska county for $160,000. It is mainly farm land with maybe 15 acres of woods. It also has a few acres of crp grass. I would have to go with the others and say yours is priced a little high due to the fact that it really isn't farmable. Its alot of money for hunting ground imo.

    I'm just wondering why everyone cares so much about what somone is trying to sell his land for that is turns in this?

    Sportsmen should not turn on eachother. There is enough others out there trying to ruin what we enjoy. do not think for a second folks watch this site and other hunting related sites to gather amo against us. Lets be respectable to eachother.
    Not trying to offend anyone....
